Wonderful, knowledgable guide eased us through the crowd and gave us a room by room narrative.
She was at our hotel promptly with driver and a large comfortable car. Would highly recommend.
Anna was a great tour guide and got us right through the lines without much wait. We would not have been able to do this trip without a guide- the lines were hours long. Plus, the driver Sergey was kind and dropped us off right where we needed to go after the tour. Worth the price given the time we saved doing this tour. Anna also knew some places we wouldn't have known to visit and she took us to the best shop after the tour. Her English was perfect. Thanks!
