We have now returned home to the USA, and we wanted to tell you how delighted we were with our tour of St. Petersburg. Yegvenya was an outstanding tour guide, and she exceeded our expectations with her knowledge of the art and history of the area. She was especially adept at helping my wife Ann navigate the mobility obstacles, and politely persuaded the other tourists to allow her to approach the displays so she could better see them. Our driver (Andre was his name, correct?) was also quite knowledgable and uncomplainingly assisted Ann during the many times when his help was required. I will not hesitate to recommend I Travel SPB to anyone who asks for a recommendation for their visit to St. Petersburg. The shore excursions offered by the cruise line could never have approached the high standards of personal guidance and accommodations for limited mobility that they provided. We will always remember our visit to St. Petersburg fondly, and our tour guides were an indispensable part of the experience.
