Our travel agent suggested Tatiana and her company, 4th Century, and we could not have been more pleased. Tatiana (Tanya) was professional, friendly and very knowledgeable. We began communicating with her via e-mail 9 months or so before our trip. There is quite a time difference between where we live, in Virginia, and St. Petersburg, Russia, however, she always replied to my e-mails in a very timely manner. My husband and I asked her for a very customized itinerary - three full days of seeing as much as we could - and what we saw exceeded our expectations. She and her driver were always waiting for us (with their very comfortable Mercedes Sedan) at our agreed upon time. She arranged for early entrance to the Hermitage and individual docent led tours for us. Her knowledge of St. Petersburg and its environ's history is impeccable. When returning to our cruise ship each evening, we were exhausted but also exhilarated with the excitement from seeing all of the marvelous sites we were shown that day. Also, overhearing other passengers talk about their disappointment with the large group tours they had booked, my husband and I just looked at each other and smiled, knowing that we had absolutely made the right choice in hiring Tatiana and 4th Century. We can hardly wait to return and see Tatiana and her beautiful city of St. Petersburg again!
