Irina's English was excellent and she was helpful, friendly and very generous with her time. Her background in art and architecture was quite evident. She explained things that even our relatively knowledgeable group of 7 did not know and could answer questions about objects in the Hermitage that she clearly had not planned to talk about. Her descriptions included the historical and cultural contexts for each artist or period of art.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the nice words! I really enjoyed our time in the Hermitage and hope you enjoyed St. Petersburg! Warm regards, Irina
