itchee1: We spent 3 days touring with Maria. She was very knowledgeable and really interesting to listen to. We learnt so much and saw more than we would've seen had we tried to go alone. If you're English speaking it can be difficult to navigate St Petersburg due to the different alphabet so having a guide solved that . Also we slipped past large tour groups and covered things in a shorter time. We would thoroughly recommend this company. All emails prior to arrival were answered promptly and nothing was too much trouble.

Iconic cathedrals, museums, and palaces were jaw-dropping, and spoke of the rich heritage that we've read and heard about the Russian empire, all from a historical, ideological, and cultural perspective. Sampling the metro, the canal tours, and the hydrofoil gave us glimpses on what a typical, everyday Russian goes through each day...  Read more reviews
