A Recent Review of this tour

Our guide Olesya and our driver Alexander were both unbelievably amazing! We cannot overstate how much we enjoyed our two days touring Saint-Petersburg, Pushkin, and Peterhof with them. They even gave presents when they learned of my daughter's recent birthday. Olesya was delightful and knowledgeable, she took us to various places in and around the city. She also helped us buy a samovar, which was very fun! Our only regret is that we didn't have more time in the city.
