Our excursion to Kronstadt was a wonderful experience. Irina is just a good guide and everything worked as it was planned.

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.
