You were certainly right when you said Kate was your very best tour guide

She was absolutely fantastic.
Very professional, added some humor, so very polite and her knowledge was outstanding.
I learned so much.
She parted the mobs of tourists like “Moses parted the waters of the Red Sea” – and did it effortlessly and respectfully.
She took the items that we especially wanted to see at the Hermitage & made sure we saw them all.
A superb management of time given all the things that were on our itinerary for the day and the crowds of tourists & traffic.
Your husband did an expert job getting us where we needed to be on time, safely & professionally.
I appreciated the suggestion of reading Peter the Great prior to our visit – it certainly helped me understand more of what I was seeing.
I also read War & Peace – and it too proved to be beneficial.
I’ll look forward to continuing my study of Russia with the list of books below.
Thank you for contributing to my literacy.

We loved your city and the experience we had with Kate

If/when we come back, we would LOVE to have her again.
We wish her the best and you also – as you are doing a fabulous job with your tour company.
Thank you so much!.
Swan and Kim, Serenade of the Seas Dear Julia It was lovely to hear from you.
Both Kim and I had the most enjoyable and fruitful trip with Dancing Bear.
Not only Kate was informative and very helpful, but she also made the trip interesting.

I must say our tour in St Petersburg is the highlight of our trip

We will definitely recommend your tour to any of our friends as I am sure you will definitely not disappoint them.
I will try out your recipe as it is winter now in Australia and a hot borsch will warm us up.
John, Deborah, Harry and Gary.
Celebrity Silhouette Hi Julia, I would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to you and your team for making our trip to St Petersburg a memorable one.

5 stars from us.
Lis, “Disney Magic” cruise ship Julia, .

It was fantastic to meet you and Lana while we were in St Petersburg

We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed learning about the Russian culture and experiencing the beautiful landmarks, churches and museums.
Everything went perfectly and we could not have asked for a better day so thank you!!!I will definitely look through the reading list, although I am still only on page 200 of War and Peace.
Thanks for the recipe too, I didn’t get to try it in Russia so nice to have the recipe.
Thanks again.
Cindy, “Fantasia” cruise ship Hi Julia, The tour has been fantastic and Lana is so kind, lovely and knowledgeable.
Please know that we cut it short only because the group was getting tired and wanted to just get a chance to buy some souvenirs.
I will highly recommend your company to anyone I know who is heading this way and certainly I will be in touch should I ever be back to do some more in depth exploration of this beautiful city.
Thanks for all of your help.
Rob, “Fantasia” cruise ship Julia, Thanks for a great tour, Tatiana and Vladimir did a very good job to accommodate our needs.
We will be sure to recommend you to future cruisers.
