Excellent tour

Dearest Masha, Thank you so much for all the wonderful information you have provided us on this excellent tour of St Petersburg. You really went above the call & duty in helping us get to the third place game of the World Cup. We also think you are the most intelligent and engaging guide we have ever had. If you ever come to B.C. we would like to offer you a place to stay in our Vancouver Island retreat. You can google our Sweet Escape Qualicum Beach, we are listed on Tripadvisor and Airbnb. You can reach us at locantner@gmail.com for anything, including booking. Thank you and All the best, Kyle & Linda – Kyle and Linda -

Memorable Family Trip

Hi Dora – I wanted to thank you for all the help you provided me in our trip. We had a wonderful time. The guides and logistics you provided were outstanding. Everything worked well (other than delayed flights over which left us stranded for a time in Iceland before finally getting to Stockholm). I can't say enough about Maria (Mosha) – our guide in St. Petersburg. She was an expert in the history, art history, architecture,and culture of Russia. She was absolutely encyclopedic. The crowds were ridiculous and Masha took wonderful care of our group throughout our stay. Thank you again. Our family trip was truly memorable. Linda and Brian – Linda and Brian K -

5 Day St Petersburg Tour, De Luxe category

We took the 5 day St Petersburg tour in late Oct/early Nov. It was fantastic. Everything worked out well. Bobby was knowledgeable and helpful in getting things set up. One great feature of the De Luxe category was the priority disembarkation – we avoided the long lines through Russian passport control and were able to setoff right away. The drivers were good, the guide, Anastasia, was fluent, knowledgeable and made sure we were comfortable, whether we needed a potty break or a cup of coffee. The hotel was comfortable and centrally located. I'm glad we did the tour in the off season as I'm sure the crowds are formidable during the peak season. If I did the tour again, I would ask for one less palace (probably Pushkin).

Visa Free Tour to St. Petersburg

Our visa-free tour from Helsinki to St Petersburg was wonderful! All arrangements worked out smoothly. The ferry trips on the St. Peterline’s “Princess Maria” from and to Helsinki were pleasant with a comfortable, roomy cabin and excellent food for dinners and breakfasts. As promised, a private tour guide (Ludmilla), with car and driver (Dmitri) were at the St Petersburg ferry terminal to meet us. It was a warm and sunny day for the extensive tour of the city and it was certainly a benefit to have a private guide for our visit to the Hermitage Museum, bypassing the queues. Ludmilla was an excellent guide throughout the entire day and we are grateful to her for her willingness to answer all our questions.

I wish to thank you for all your help in planning our trip from St. Petersburg to Moscow. All went very well. The train ride was uneventful. We did need some assistance from the concierge at our hotel in St. Petersburg in deciphering the signs in the railroad station. We had her write our the words "departure" and "arrival" in Russian, so we would know what track our train would be leaving.
