City Tour with the Peter and Paul Fortress

Lita our guide was fantastic - provided not just the facts but also glimpses of everyday life. She was very happy to answer our questions. We were a small group (6) and she tailored it to suit all. We ended up extending to the Grand Tour which was a great introduction to St Petersburg and vital if you are going to get past the huge crowds we found everywhere. ...Andrew Johnson J., Australia – See more reviews
