Elena is the individual who took care of all the leg work for my family and me. She made us feel very welcomed to Russia and cared for our well being!

The tour guide that guided us throughout Saint Petersburg was AlexSasha. He has an abundance of knowledge to pass on to any and everyone! He made sure we were taken care of and that we had a great time exploring.

One very important point is that we have a wheelchair user in our family. Elena and Alex made a great effort to make sure that we were able to see all the points of interests and accommodate for the challenge of a wheelchair.

We would definitely recommend Red Sun Tours to any and everyone that wants to visit Saint Petersburg!
