Review about St. Petersburg - Venice of the North by Linda and Brad
Dear Masha and Dora:
Brad and I returned two days ago from our “trip of a lifetime.” We couldn’t have done this without your thorough preparation on our behalf. We cannot thank you both enough for the spectacular time we had in St. Petersburg. Each day brought new and exciting experiences, and Masha’s superb knowledge was invaluable. She enriched our understanding of this beautiful city, its history, and your country. Masha guided us so expertly with humor, patience and advice on everything from restaurants to enjoy and areas of the city to explore when on our own. She helped with shopping and we felt safe and secure in her care. She shepherded us through the Hermitage, Puskin, Peterhoff, and all the St. Petersburg city sights, churches and important buildings with an assurance that spoke of her love and pride in her country. We felt our week with her fulfilled all our expectations and more. We will certainly recommend East-West Tours and Masha to our friends who might be hesitant to plan a Russian trip on their own.
With sincere thanks to you both, Linda and Brad
