This was a very good tour. We certainly visited all the St. P. highlights. There was almost too much to take in - so we were pressed to keep moving all the time. Our Guide, Irina, was excellent. Very knowledgeable, friendly and solicitous of our needs. A wonderful representative of the Russian people

Can't rate this too highly. Olga was very knowledgeable and managed to avoid crowds. Lunches were good and gave us a little break from all the sightseeing. Will recommend to friends. This is my go to tour company. I was more than pleased with my experience. The guide and tour driver were outstanding.
