This tour is a chance to ride the metro if you don’t on your own. The Underground is practically spotless and the murals, statues, pillars and portraits are amazing! This is a very relaxed, fun and interesting tour.

I have unfortunately forgotten the name of our guide, but she had excellent knowledge of Saint Petersburg's history, a good sense of humour, and was eager to learn about us and where we're from. We were also given good recommendations for food and must-see attractions.
