I cannot begin to tell you what a great time we had on the St. Petersburg tour; your knowledge of Russian art and cultural history made the city come alive for us and made the tour so meaningful. We have come away with a new understanding of the Russian people and I think we will be developing an interest in returning sometime in the future. Thank you for making the culture come alive for us...
Sincerely, Jim and Barbara Potter

Pavel — I just wanted to say thank you again for a wonderful several days touring your beautiful city of St. Petersburg!
My Dad, Aunt, and I made it safely home on Saturday evening though it was a long and interesting day of traveling between St. Petersburg, Paris, and then on to Atlanta, GA.
Your knowledge of the city and easy style contributed greatly to us enjoying our stay in St. Petersburg. Your ears may have been burning for the last several days as your name came up frequently in remembering all of the places we visited and what we learned at each site. You made our trip not only enjoyable but also more memorable. If it weren’t so far away I’m sure my Aunt would be popping in on your wedding in October! But you’re safe — I think ?
I’ve added your contact information into both my electronic and paper rolodexes. I’ve also popped out to your Viva La Tour website and bookmarked it for continued reference. I will be certain to pass your name on, with much confidence, to those people I run into who are interested in exploring a guided trip to St. Petersburg
Good luck with the upcoming wedding and with all of your other adventures to come!
Sincerely, Mary Youngblood
Pavel — I would like to thank you for everything you did for us — not the least of which was getting our «road show» onto the train — dashing along the platform — with you jumping off the moving train — at the last moment — headed to defend your thesis!! You are a marvel!
In addition to all that I learned as far as history — life in Russia, customs and anecdotes — you are such fun to be around — You were the best guide we had anywhere else on our travels.
I hope you have a lucrative summer season — I really loved St Petersburg — and you truly acclimated us to the city.
All good luck and fortune to you.
Sincerely, Kimbelee Bowman
On behalf of myself and my family, I would like to thank you for acting as our tour guide to St. Petersburg. We all loved the city, and are very grateful to you for telling us all about it’s short but vivid history and our visit to the Peterhof, especially the gardens, I would say was a highlight of the trip for each of us.
In our remaining days, we spent a wonderful afternoon in the Hermitage, which I would rate as possibly the best museum/gallery I have ever been to, for the sheer beauty of the buildings themselves as well as the pieces of art contained within. We also took a boat ride that took us along the Neva and Fontanka, and looked at the epic mosaics in the Church on Spilled Blood.
Since our return, we have told a number of our friends about the trip, and several have expressed an interest in travelling to Russia. We have kept your card, and if any do decide to go to St. Petersburg, we would be delighted to recommend you as a tour guide.
St. Petersburg certainly topped Moscow!
Kind regards, Tom Garvey
Thanks so much for the incredible tour of St. Petersburg. We had an unbelievable time and packed more knowledge into two days than a year of highschool history. Send us a link to your business on trip advisor, and we’ll both write up a couple reviews to hopefully boost your rank.
Best Regards, Boris and Sam
