Looked for a private guide in S:t Petersburg and saw that Tour-In-Stpetersburg had a five day arrangement. Contacted Ekaterina at Tour-in-stpetersburg for a suggestion. Ekatrina came back witha a suggestion the following day wich I accepted. A question came back with the prices in EUR and USD as she thought that it was a bit costly for one person and wanted me to confirm that I fully understood the cost. Thank you for that.
An arrangement was set up and the final details came to me a week before departure.
GENERAL: All guides on time, high degree of knowledge, service minded with open attitude, clean confortable cars and careful driving. Pick up and leave at hotel all days. Highly recomended.
Day one, a trip to Novgorod where I was met by Alexandra who took me around both by car and foot. Alexandra is an exelant guide and made the presentation in a personal way that opend for questions and conversation. Novgorod has a faschinating history with lots of Connections to Scandinavia and the Baltic states, It was a long day, Alexandra made it interseting and Worth while.
The following four days I visited all sights presented in tour-in-stpetersburg except for the vodka museum.
Day two, Three and five, Dina was my guide. Lots of people in line waiting to get in on most all places, but Dina made us come in within a few minutes leaving the long line behind us. As a teacher Dina is very good at Communication and full of information about all sights we visited. In the middle of the high season it was crowded in most sights, we had to follow the flow of people wich did not encoutage conversation. Dina is an open and positive person, eager to please and give you all the information she can.
Pauline was my guide for day four, a day of walk and public transportation We covered Alexander-Nevski-Monastery, Yussupov Palace and Russian Museum, not so crowded wich gave time to discuss what was seen. The discusions with Pauline made me look at, mainly the art, things from different perspectives. A memorable day.
All in all: Ekaterina at tour-in-stpetersburg delivered more than expected, her services are highly recomended.
