Anna is a true art lover & teacher. Guided our group of 4 cruisers through Staff Bldg & Hermitage. In a short time, she gave a course in Impressionism - offering insights into lives of artists, forms & subjects, relations to social & art developments. On short notice, Anna got wheelchair access with staff. Expertly navigated way to key works through Hermitage, contextualizing many pieces with ease. Equally at adept at Russian & art history, life of the Palace & Museum collection. DELIGHTFUL.
Anna was a perfect guide for our family. She guided us to the most important places in history in Saint Petersburg and made the tour fun and interesting for the whole family (children ages 5, 8, and 11). We not only learned more about the city, but also felt very confartable to drive around the city and buying things such as food and souvenirs with her help and knowledge since we do not speak Russian. She also accompanied us to a local restaurant, where we experienced traditional Russian cuisine.
