She gave us an excellent understanding of the history, art and people of Russia and the St. Petersburg city, the wonderful attractions, and surrounding area.

Baird and Darla Thompson

She was prompt, courteous and accommodating. Her knowledge of the English language, the Russian history, art, etc. was outstanding.

Erika Stellato, USA

Our tour guide Valentina was absolutely outstanding. Her knowledge, enthusiasm and interest in her work was infectious and we felt like we were being shown the city by a friend. All in our group of four became quite attached to her and our parting after only three days together was even somewhat emotional. She is a gem!

Bob Rothman, USA

Valentina was wonderful, charming, knowledgeable, and on a more human side, was most willing to share her thoughts about the current status and the past, with respect to life in Russia.

Gerald Rothman, USA

Most of all, your selection of our tour guide, Valentina, could not have been more appreciated. Her English was very easy to understand. Her knowledge was beyond description and she was a wonderful and delightful lady.
