This tour we agreed to let us show more important sights we already have visited. Alexandra is enthousiastic and can tell a lot about Russia's history. Much was to be told about the Tsar's family and anecdotes about them. Alexandra was prepared for our trip and before she went with the tour she had all the facts ready and if she did not know somehting exactly she would look it up to give all the answers needed. Highly recommended!
Thanks for all Alexandra!
ps. Also other tours we went with Alexandra were interesting and entertaining.

I went on Alexandra's tour with my girlfriend during a short trip to St Petersburg and it was really the highlight of our time in Russia. The dacha and banya were beautiful and the food she cooked for us was delicious.
Alexandra's stories of Russian culture and history were fascinating and she made us feel incredibly welcome, organising every part of the tour for us perfectly. We came away from this tour feeling very relaxed and having made a new friend.
I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting St Petersburg!

me and my friend, to whom I gave this tour as a present, were both excited about the way you did it. It was exactly the style of story-telling we are both enjoying - not too academic, but on the other side not just entertaining. All the facts you told us were carefully selected and well-presented. Besides, we were very pleased with your English and your preparation - you also had some hand-outs and portraits of the persons you were talking! That´s just great! Thank you so much, we had really pleasant time!

This was a fascinating tour with anecdotes, legends, and enigmatic deaths of the tsars and other royalties that you don’t hear in normal history tours in St. Petersburg. Alexandra knows not only historical events, dates, and buildings but also the little known secrets of those buildings and their ghosts! Alexandra is a great storyteller! I highly recommend this tour!
The tour from Alexandra was superb organised. We were there on February 27th 2015 and her description of the tour she fully met. it was winter, so a lot of snow was around the region which made it for us extra interesting.
We also joined the Vyborg tour and this was a nice tour to see something more than only St Petersburg. The tour met the expectations and Alexandra is a nice and friendly guide with excellent English
