Dina is an amazing tour guide. She has plenty of energy, knowledge and enthusiasm that she gladly shared with our group. St Petersburg was the highlight of our cruise.

Although it took a 1-2 of hours to reach several destinations (Suburban Palaces of the Royal Family) it was time well spent. The inspiring views of French regular Peterhof fountain Park and amazing Baroque Style Winter Palace were spectacular. Our guide showed good knowledge of the history, taking us to the best locations for photo opportunities. Highly recommend this tour if you want to hear about Russian History and explore main highlights within 2 days.
