WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

“St. Petersburg was our favorite port and we feel that is largely due to you. Thank you for taking the time to organize our itinerary to match our needs and desires.


Above all, thank you for bringing St. Petersburg to life for us, teaching us its history and sharing its culture. You have provided us with a lifetime of memories and a desire to return. And if we do, know for certain that we will request your guide again.”


Harriet Achtman, USA

“We were extremely pleased with the process of dealing with your organization. The ability to customize our tour before we left home, the driver was superb, the guide spoke excellent English and knew so much about Russian history and the art and architecture of St. Petersburg.


When we compared our tour experiences with those of other passengers on the ship who had made private arrangements, we were sure we had made the right decision.”


Susan Workman, USA

“Each night we returned to the ship our tablemates could not wait to hear about our adventures as they all found the cruise ship tours too crowded and too slow. They were very envious of the places we visited, the things we saw and the information we received compared to their tours...

They had a very long delay at Catherine's Palace but you bypassed the queue and we walked right by them as they waited. We had finished our tour before they even got inside and we were on our way to the next stop... Thank you for an amazing time!”


Ray and Sandra Myers, Australia

“It is with the greatest of pleasure that I thank your staff for a most wonderful vacation tour of St. Petersburg.


Your program covered a world of wonders to see. There was not a wasted moment of time and everything went exactly according to your original two day scheduled tour.”



Gerald and Yo Hoerner, USA
