"We had a wonderful time in St Petersburg, so many beautiful sights. It was especially nice to be able to do what we wanted, when we wanted. To be able to say "Go here", "Go there", "Stay longer or shorter", and not worry about a bus load of 25 or 50. When I hear of anyone planning a trip to Russia I will be happy to recommend your company."

Michael Weigand, USA

"We were a group of four who chose the 3 Day Grand Slalom, and it was perfection. Our tour guide was/is a total superstar - outrageously knowledgeable she was able to answer our incredibly arcane questions with amazing specificity. The itinerary was also great - perfect blend of sights, art, history, churches, real life. We were VERY satisfied customers!"

Jeff Blumenkrantz, USA

"Thank you for your support from start to finish. Everything went as planned, the tour was exactly what we asked for, the guide was excellent and the driver as well, we had a lot of fun together driving around! With best wishes!

Valerie Gray, France

"We had a terrific tour with your company. We enjoyed the comfort of the van and were very happy with Irene. She was very patient and informative. The driver met our expectations too. I will certainly recommend your company to friends and colleagues. We heard some horror stories from other passenger about their tours from the cruise ship and were so glad we decided to take your private tour. MERCI BEAUCOUP!"
