Month and year of visit: May 2015
Hello and Good day
We wanted to say "Thank you so very much" to Irina and Sergej for their warm welcome and the wonderful time that we had in St. Petersburg in early October while we were with them.
We enjoyed their prompt and friendly service, always on time, courteous, and Irina was very informative about the city, history, Peterhof Imperial Estate, and Catherine Palace & Park that we visited on excursions.
We had a great lunch at the restaurant Irina recommended, and I am enjoying my papier-mache painted lacquer jewel box that I got from the shop she recommended. I would love to know which of the four official schools my box was from since I did not get any certificate with it and I remember Irina looking at it and saying something (I just cannot remember, and she may not either?).
The rest of our travels throughout Europe were nice, except that we both got sick from the river cruise down the Danube. Fellow passengers on the ship were all very sick, and we are still working on getting over it!
Thanks for the amazing memories of your beautiful city. It was such a pleasure having you as our guide and driver, and we appreciate your services and kindness very much. May you and your families have a blessed Christmas. Take care and many thanks again. Fondly, Robert and Yvonne Chamberlain
