My wife, Beverly and I just returned from Russia and the highlight of our trip was our wonderful guide, Tatiana (Tanya) who brought the past Saint Petersburg alive. Whether we were at the Hermitage, Peterhof, Catherine’s Palace, Constantine’s Palace or the Jewish Synagogue she enhanced the beauty of the site with interesting and entertaining stories and analyses. Having traveled much of the world we have never had a guide we enjoyed more than Tatiana. Thanks again.
