My husband and I travelled to St.Petersbourg last year and was met off our ship the PRINCESS MARIA of ST.PETER LINE by Svetlana who was to be our engish speaking guide for our day there. She was a very pleasant person who spoke excellent english and explained all about the city as we travelled to the main tourist sites. At the sites she accompanied us and again explained in a detailed way about the architecture, history and artworks on view. She explained where to eat lunch and never left our side.
The next day she took us in a private car out of the city to the summer palace. We were collected at our hotel and returned there and once again she came around all the grounds with us explaining all, she also told us many interesting facts about Russian life, her life and customs of Russia, in fact I can highly recommend her company -GUIDE FOR YOU- and would use it again for shore excursions when I visit St.Petersbourg again.
