Both you and Anna came over very well and how you remember all those facts, amazing. Please thank Demetri and Anna for all they did for us. We will be recommending you to all our friends.

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. William Powell
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! Pamela and Rod
My husband and I visited Petersburg in June 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.
Our guide Anna was wonderful. Her English as impeccable as was her knowledge of Russian history. We enjoyed all the highlights of the city as well as a couple meals that seemed quite authentic. Very pleased with our decision to take a private tour for our two days in Russia. Dimitri, our driver, was also so kind and always exactly where we needed him to be. Raisa took care of all the pre-arrival details as well as secured our visitor visa. Overall A+ experience. Review from Tripadvisor
Liked the tour very much. Will recommend you to our friends and also will be back for sure…! AlfredoRaisa was our tour guide when we visited St. Petersburg in April . She was friendly, professional, and made sure we had the time of our lives! We spent 2 full days with Raisa and her driver, Andrei. Each morning, they picked us up from our hotel and spent at least 12 hours a day with us. We visited many museums and monuments each day and Andrei made plenty of impromptu stops to ensure we were able to take the best pictures and experience local delicacies. Thanks to Raisa, we had a very authentic experience in the city. She is a wealth of knowledge and her English is impeccable and very easy to understand. The van was very comfortable and she could not have organized the trip better. Not only did the itinerary flow with the historical background she provided, she made sure to spend our travel time between stops providing information and interesting facts about Russia, the culture, and preparing us for the next locale on our agenda. Raisa's flexibility in customizing our itinerary and even changing it on the fly when we expressed a certain food craving or named some obscure monument we wanted to see was impressive and extremely accommodating. There was not a single piece of history or art that she did not know something about or have a story for us and having her as a tour guide truly made the city come alive. Her expertise with the region allowed us to seamlessly enter each museum and location with zero inconvenience. If you are in need of a tour guide in St. Petersburg, there is no one that is more knowledgeable, enthusiastic, or organized than Raisa. It was a pleasure working with her and we would definitely recommend her to anyone visiting St. Petersburg as she truly went above and beyond. Review from Tripadvisor
