AMAZING Tour of St. Petersburg with Mila

From the beginning, Mila was insightful and fun, and she definitely kept us entertained the entire time. She just knows EVERYTHING there is to know about Russia!..Mila made sure to help our group feel comfortable and at home in a place where we absolutely could not understand any part of the language. She went to the next level with helping us order food while on the tour and figuring out where to eat for dinner. She even helped to hook us up with a reservation at an awesome restaurant!

City of Magnificent Palaces and Much Much More

THE highlight of the 11 night Baltic Sea Cruise, made even more enjoyable by the expert knowledge of our guide for the 2 days, Mila.

Loved the 4 person private tour

With just six of us in the vehicle it was possible to ask lots of questions, get to know our guide and driver and about their families and their lives in Russia… Early admittance to sights was critical in St. Petersburg, can’t imagine doing this city on your own if your time is limited to a few days. Continue Reading “Loved the 4 person private tour”
