Review about Helsinki - St. Petersburg - Tallinn - Stockholm by Doug Parlee
Linda and I fully enjoyed our 3 day tour of St Petersburg. Having a local guide (Anna), provided a unique view of Russian life. She was the very best of guides, a wealth of information, and helped us to appreciate everything we saw. She went out of her way to provide some local colour (lunch at her favourite restaurant Katyusha ) and tips on buying souvenirs and cultural extras. Anna comes highly recommended. The only change I would request is that the schedule takes into account a light lunch around 12 or 1pm. Anna had to modify our schedule to provide this. Oh yes the boarding and off loading on the Princess Anastasia was terrible (took way too long and was disorganised). On the whole though a fantastic trip.
