* A traveler said: "A canal boat ride is an absolutely wonderful way to see St Petersburg without traffic and huge crowds. If you're lucky enough to have Alexandra as your guide you will be blessed with a well-mannered, organised, well-educated young woman who can answer all of your questions with her top-class English skills - AND - I really appreciated that she made contact with me a couple of times prior to the tour to make sure I felt confident with our arrangements. A very impressive tour which I highly recommend! PS... Earlier this day I was in terrible pain from blisters on my feet from walking so much the day before. I thought the rest of my holiday was ruined. When I messaged Alexandra on WhatsApp she offered to come to my hotel early, with a taxi, and help me find more comfortable shoes! She actually saved my entire holiday 😇"
