A Recent Review of this tour

We were a group of four from the US, that enjoyed our tour of St Petersburg, Russia. It is a truly beautiful city that is full of rich history. We loved our tour guide Anna! She put us at ease right away, as we were not sure what to expect. Anna showed us the great beauty of St Petersburg, she was very informative, fun and accommodating to our group. Thank you very much Anna!
