The guides, drivers, hotels and general organization were great. I especially have to mention Maria (Marsha) (St Petersburg) who was the best guide I have ever had on a tour - and as you know, I have travelled extensively. She was even able to find and return my umbrella to me after I left it in the left-luggage store at the Hermitage! Wonderful person and extraordinarily well-versed in the history of St P's and Russia in general. She became a friend to all of us in a professional manner. June Cahill
