It's very rare to have all combined: the magnificent Palace with beautiful interiors and fine collection of works of art in it. This is truly wonderful."

"My Irish family visited St. Petersburg in Summer. Maria showed them around the city and palaces and parks outside the city. Maria's knowledge of St. Petersburg and its history was really outstanding. She created a wonderful program for the family for the entire stay that would cater for all age groups and interests. As a result the family enjoyed a relaxed yet very informative stay, and they fell in love with the St. Petersburg!"

Elena e Alessandro (Italy)

 "Salve signora Maria, le invio questa mail per ringraziarla del tour della città che ci ha fatto fare! Siamo stati molto contenti e ci è piaciuto molto, lei è stata molto carina e gentile e anche molto chiara nelle spiegazioni che ci hanno permesso di entrare meglio nella storia di San Pietroburgo. Lo spettacolo al teatro dell'Ermitage è stato molto bello, è durato circa tre ore, ma il teatro è bellissimo e lo spettacolo scorre bene senza annoiare, ballerini erano molto bravi, soprattutto la prima ballerina che balla sembrando leggera come una piuma.Si vede bene da ogni postazione. Grazie ancora della sua disponibilità."

"Dear Maria! Now we are back home in Italy again, and still dreaming of the beautiful city of S. Petersburg! You have showed and explained us so much and it made our stay a very big event we will never forget in our life!  Thank you so much again and wishing you lots of success in your work and in your family life! Please contact us if you happen to come to Italy! Lots of love. Marianna & Nicolas, Annoscia with Clara & Sebastian."

Terry & Sally Filliman (Roseville, California):

"We have finally returned home after traveling to seven (7) countries including returning to four (4) countries two times during the past 25 days. I did write a positive reference on your web page at the viator web site.  It is now posted and you may review it: "Excellent. We visited Saint-Petersburg. Maria met our cruise ship and provided an outstanding 1-day tour. She was organized, very knowledgable in the history and the details of Hermitage Museum paintings and artifacts. Maria spoke clear English and was easy to understand. Our guide was able to duck and dodge the large tour groups at the Hermitage. We would highly recommend Maria for a private tour of St. Petersburg. Our overall cost for a private tour was less than the cruise tour price for a large group."  We very much enjoyed meeting you and your warm, personal contact during our one day tour. The second day rained heavily so we were quite limited in our pre-scheduled events although we did view the ballet graduation performance which was special. If you and your family every travel to the United States (Northern California), please contact us in advance. Warmly,Terry & Sally Filliman, Roseville, California."


Herbert Lode (Germany):

"Dear Maria, thank you very much for the excellent organization of our stay in St. Petersburg. We enjoyed the days very much. Please hand over our best thanks to Irina for her kindness and excellent service during these days. We promised to send her the addresses of important Bavarian castles and I would be grateful if you would transfer this e-mail to her."


Inna Aiello (Italy):

"Здравствуйте, Мария!  С наступающим праздником поздравляю Вас и Вашу семью. Семья Фантетти осталась очень довольна знакомством с Вами, искренне сказали самые добрые о Вас слова. Надеюсь скоро сама побывать в Вашем прекрасном городе (в более подходящий сезон), а также буду рекомендовать Вас своим итальянским знакомым."



 Agnes (Italy):

"Dear Maria, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you...We continue to remember our wonderful times with you ... We have a very nice and deep memory of our holiday in your beautiful city! We loved our time there and hope to return one of these years, who knows! Be sure, if somebody of my friends decides to come in Russia I will give your name and your website!"


Tracy Ramsey (London), Goring hotel, Sales Diirector:

"Hi Maria, I was very pleased to get acquainted with you during my trip to St. Petersburg. This trip was very successful for me.

Natalya Jager (USA, Russia):

"Our group of 6 persons booked three full day excursions from 9-30 till 17-30 (St. Petersburg, Petrograd, Pushkin) with stops in the exclusive restaurants for lunch. In the evening visit of the Mariinsky theatre, the Mikhailovsky theatre and folklore show.The program proposed by Maria was extremely interesting, informative and memorable in terms of what they saw, but especially in terms of interesting historical material. If you want to seeand learn a lot and to have the tour program created exactly for Your interests have the opportunity to get an excellent guide in St. Petersburg!"



 Melany Dorain: (USA):

"Maria showed our group of 6 people, including 3 English speakers and 3 Russian speakers, around St. Petersburg. Maria put together a great 3 day itinerary, including sites, transportation, and restaurants. The trip was incredibly memorable for all of us, and Maria did a fantastic job explaining everything we were seeing!"


Linda Gennai Hyndmann

"My husband and I visited St. Petersburg in July, 2012. We were lucky to get Maria as our guide. She not only took us to the places on our list of "things to see", but, if we had extra time, she took us to other places of interest like the deepest subway station in the world. You may not think a subway station is interesting, but, believe me, the architecture was beautiful underground. Maria is very knowledgeable about everything, not only the museums, but the history of St. Petersburg and its people. She even told us interesting anecdotes about garden statues and certain "trick" squirting benches. With Maria leading our tour, we got into Catherine Palace before the crowds and were able to visit the Amber Room by ourselves for 10 minutes. What a treat that was.
Thank you Maria for making our time in St. Petersburg one of the most memorable vacation ever."



Wendy Eager, USA:

"Our small group spent 3 days with Maria in and around St. Petersburg. We learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed spending time with her. Hope to go back someday and have Maria show us what we missed the first time."
