If you would like to see a side of St. Petersburg that the regular tours don't take you on please try this one! Irina knew the best vintage shoppes. And my Mother in Law is a foodie. Irina took us to the best place where both of us had a great time. This is different view of St Petersburg and we highly recommend it.

The tour was announced to last 2 hours, in fact we finished the tour after 1 hour and 15 minutes. On the tour we had to make a lot of photostops and visit a souvenir shop even though we did not want to do that. The guide was during the photostops and the souvenir stop very busy with his cell phone - it just felt very weird. All in all not recommendable for the money we payed.
