Tour of St Petersburg and Hermitage  

This was the highlight of a holiday full of wonderful things. Elena was so thorough in her research, finding out in real detail what we both liked and wanted to see in advance and then tailoring her time with us to deliver exactly that. A delightful tour of the city and then the best possible introduction to the Hermitage. I remember every moment with vividness. And she's a real pleasure to be with.
