Excellent tour

We did this tour after being in St Petersburg for a few days and it was excellent. Some of the sights we saw on the tour we had already seen but wanted to know history and additinal information about them. Andy was a awesone guide. His English was perfect, and he had an amazing knowledge of the city which he wanted to share with us. Highly recommended.
