My husband and I visited Petersburg in June 2014 and stayed for 6 days. We wanted to see the main monuments on our own, but wanted to have a guide to go with us to Peterhof and Pushkin by car to see the wonderful palaces there. We contacted Raisa from Germany by email and we got a reply very quickly. She was very helpful and answered all our questions to elaborate two perfect days in the suburbs of St Petersburg. In Pushkin our tour included besides a visit of the Catherine Palace a walk through a magnificent park. Raisa showed us some special sites which are not usually shown on standard tours. She gave us a lot of additional information on history and everyday life in Russia. Raisa was very attentive to us and took very good care of us. She was friendly and always in time! Just a perfect guide! Thank you so much for these nice days in St Petersburg! We'd like to visit again.
Raisa gave us a wonderful tour! She knew her city's history and displayed a thorough knowledge of the beautiful palaces, churches, and museums and their contents. She is personable, and her English is very understandable. We wanted to visit several places not on the usual itinerary, and she graciously accommodated us. She made St. Petersburg one of the most memorable stops on our cruise. Don't hesitate to use her as your guide.
Dear Raisa Thank you for being our guide during our three wonderful days in St Petersburg. Your knowledge about your city was wonderful, as was your mastery of English language. Your love of St Petersburg and your pride in your city shone through! We have passed one of your cards on to our travel agent with our full recommendation. And we hope you make it to Australia one day! Only 24 hours from St Petersburg!
