Just finished this tour and still thinking about how great everything was. we saw lots of sights thanks to good planning of the route by our guide and driver. Tatiana, the tour leader, was very friendly and helful. she gave us good background information about the places we visited, was eagerly answering questions from the group and giving her opinion as a local. We had time for a quick lunch and were free to choose one of the cafes suggested by the guide. they were inexpensive and nice. the highlight of the tour was, undoubtedly, the Hermitage. Absolute must visit! Thanks again to Tatiana and Ivan, the driver, who made our trip great.

Our tour guide Nadia Korzhina and bus driver Alexander worked hard to get us thru the crowds and to find restrooms and restaurants.
