Oksana is an outstanding tour guide ~ the tour program is well planned and executed. Meal included is excellent with plenty of time to enjoy it. Shopping is planned at a local merchant who carries the best of the best at reasonable prices. The Hermitage is incredible, Oksana did a very fine job of showing us the highlights and covering the history in the time allotted. Try to skip the coat check and use that time for the museum. Coat check in and out eats 30 valuable minutes!!! The sites included are all very beautiful and well deserving of the in-depth history Oksana provided. Be prepared to walk your socks off!

This excursion was one of the best that we have been on. After getting off the ship we were met by our tour guide Ana. She was awesome. She was very knowledgeable and informal\tive. Lunches were included each day and both were very good. She was able to keep our group flowing and ontime so we would be able to see as much as we could. Highly recommend this tour to all

This was an excellent tour. It was very full on which you need to get round all the sights. Our guide Anna was also excellent. she was very knowledgeable and amusing making the tour very enjoyable. We compared our tour with those purchaed through the cruise, ours had far more content and was almost half the price. Anna was very careful to make allowances for the less mobile members of the tour without affecting the experience for the rest of the group. Thank you Anna for making our two days so memorable.
