Eugenia was terrific. We took a walk around the city center, and Eugenia showed showed us the interiors of the cathedrals and the Hermitage. She offered to wait for us outside, but it was definitely worth buying tickets for her to have her accompany us inside the sites. She's very knowledgable about the paintings, and helped us to navigate some of the high points of the enormous and overwhelming Hermitage. She was a trooper, willing to climb to the top of St Isaac's with us in the freezing cold. Her sunny disposition and excellent English made conversation a pleasure. By the end of the day, we felt we had made a new friend, as well as seen some of a beautiful and fascinating city. We won't hesitate to book Eugenia for another tour the next time we are in St. Petersburg.
Thanks for a wonderful day, Eugenia, and Happy New Year.
