A Recent Review of this tour

Four of us on a Viking Cruise had the extreme pleasure of spending two days with Anna P. in St. Petersburg area. She was well versed in Russian history and was able to add many details that one might not find on a larger tour. Outstanding English skills both on our tour, but even more important in our pre-tour emails in setting up the tour and the all important tour tickets (your temporary Russian visa). Her choices for our lunches on both days proved to be outstanding! Sept. 6&7 2017
