A Recent Review of this tour

Elena was brilliant on our custom 2 day tour of St Petersburg. She is a walking encyclopaedia on the history of SP, the Tsars and their various palaces. She drove past various points of interest on our way to the places we had asked to see and at times, traffic (& tourists!) permitting was able to stop for photo opportunities. Being a small group Elena was able to legitimately negotiate our way to the front of many of the queues which made a massive difference. We would definitely use Elena again in SP
