Thank you Anna, we both really enjoyed our tour and would recommend you to others. It was so lovely and enjoyable to walk and talk and have St Petersburg opened up to us. There are so many places to see that a day is clearly not enough time to take in all the sights, but you showed us all the places that we could fit in within our limited time. It also made us feel so special to have our own personal driver take us around with you - collecting and dropping us off wherever we wanted. Many thanks once
