We LOVED our TJ Travel's 2-day Highlights of St. Petersburg tour with the marvelous Ksenya. We were upgraded from the standard tour because the only others on the tour that day from our ship were my brother and his girlfriend, so it made sense to combine us (and it was more fun for us). I will definitely write reviews on both Cruise Critic (I reviewed our ship already, so hopefully that will qualify me to write a review on TJ Travel) and TripAdvisor (which I write for often).
I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed Ksenya's vast knowledge of history, and her desire to show us as much as possible of your beautiful city. Her English was excellent, and she answered many questions from all of us that enhanced our appreciation even more. She was also very helpful in arranging ahead of time for my husband to be served vegetarian meals at the two restaurants where we had lunches. Looking back on those two days, I'm really impressed with how much we were able to see in that relatively short amount of time, and of course much of it had to do with Ksenya's great planning and knowledge (and also Nicholai's skillful driving).
I thought you would enjoy this picture my husband took (he calls it The 6 Graces). Thanks so much for arranging such a wonderful tour.
