We had a splendid tour. Katya is a nice outgoing person. She speaks accent-free English. I visited St. Petersburg met zoon. We booked a two person one-hour private tour. Besides the famous egg, please do take a look at the icons! Love from Holland!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you a lot!! All the best to you!)

I am so impressed with the quality of personnel provided by TBL. Katya was the most perfect guide and if / when i come back to Russia she will be my first choice. We were interested in old history and she was well versed and knowledgeable, she also pointed out new history and positive changes occurring in the city. Her tours are my FAVORITE memories. I had the opportunity to visit places i didn't even know existed and learned SO much about the history of one of my favorite countries! KATYA is the BEST!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Laurie! thank you with all my heart! All the best to you and your great friends!

Katya's skill with the English language is excellent! Her knowledge of Russian history is amazing. There were four women on our tour with different physical abilities. On our tour of several cathedrals and palaces, Katya was attentive, kind, and toured every location we requested. She was able to get us to tour spots at opening time so we felt as if we were the only tourists in town. She also switched from metro to taxi when one of our party was having problems with mobility. I will use her again!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Karen! So pleased to hear that! Thank you for contacting me and impressing me with your knowledge of Russian history and culture! I am definitely waiting for you to come back with your family!

Whilst St Petersburg is a fabulous city, we would not have appreciated it as much without our guide Katya. We (a family of 5 ranging from age 11 to 79) booked her for a 2 day tour; her knowledge was incredible, her passion and enthusiasm about the city was infectious, her attentiveness to our needs was endearing. We saw the major sites you can see in 2 days, and being a small group we were able to weave around the bigger tours - leaving us time for some authentic Russian food, and learn a few phrases too.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much! Hope, you will come again!

Fabulous guide! She created a custom tour with visa-free support for the two days we were in port. We had a full itinerary and we enjoyed every minute. With vegetarians in our group, she even found some great veg. restaurants with delicious traditional Russian dishes. She has amazing knowledge of the city's history and culture and absolutely wonderful stories! She's professional, friendly and sincere—a delight to spend our visit with! If you need a guide, choose Ekaterina! She really is the absolute best!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Ilyssa! It was a pleasure to work with you and your family! Hope, you will come to this city again!
