Dear Maria
I am writing you following our recent visit to St Petersburg. You took us to the Hermitage then the next day on a visit to the fortress.
I"m writing to thank you and to say how much we all enjoyed our visit. We loved the city and look forward to coming back soon. Hannah, being a teenager does not like to show enthusiasm, but she has frequently said how much she enjoyed the tours.
We are now back in England and unfortunately back to work, but look forward to coming back again. On the card you gave us it says the Golden Ring - what is that please?
Thank you again.

Do you remember me? Thank you so much for all your hard work. We had a wonderful holiday. You have certainly showed us St. Petersburg and haven’t missed out any of its amazing attractions.
Our three days were filled with so many different activities. The time passed so quickly. We didn’t want to leave. We had a lot of fun and will never forget your sense of humor. You are the best!
Love,

Thank you for looking after us so well in St. Petesburg.
We had the most wonderful time. The tour was excellent thanks to your endless knowledge of everything and not forgetting Andrew, the driver, who always managed to find a convenient parking place and knew all the ways to get round your busy city.
You spoke so eloquently. Your English was excellent and your knowledge of every aspect of Russian life, history, art and politics was amazing. Yes, we had such a good time, and look forward to returning another day...

Hello Maria,
Many thanks for a great holiday. You gave detailed information on the sites and history of St. Petersburg. Your knowledge at the Hermitage and Catherine"s palace was amazing - the level of detail and information on the rooms and displays was interesting and informative.
We would have no hesitation in using your services again or recommending you to others. In a small group it is more personalized and much easier to move around at the destinations.

My Dear Friend,
It’s been a wonderful experience to visit St. Petersburg! I feel as if we’ve had a great time and exciting introduction to a unique city.
Everything went smooth from the very beginning. Our driver was prompt and courteous. He was great in making his way through the busy city. All our tours were well planned and paced. I will never forget the gardens of Peterhof.
We had many requests, perhaps more than your usual clients. I was impressed how quickly you responded to all our wishes. You are really flexible. I was also impressed that you know every back door. There were no lines for us. We entered all museums like VIPs.
As a discerning traveler, I can assure that you are perfect 10!

It was my second visit to St. Petersburg. And it was my second time with Maria. She showed me the city from a different perspective.
The tours were well organized. Maria was like a walking encyclopedia and very pleasant to be with. I will long remember the very informative tours and the laughs we had with each of them. The canal ride was unforgettable.
Thanks for all your enthusiasm. You are the sunshine!

Dear Maria,
You have been a first-rate guide and a wonderful ambassadress for your city. You have brought it to life for us with great knowledge and humour.
Your English would shame many native English speakers, and has been a delight to listen to.
We wish you and your family all the very best.

Dear Maria,
Thank you very much for an absolutely wonderful experience. My husband and I are quite difficult to please but you managed to do so. Never before have we been with a guide who was as knowledgeable as you while still maintaining a friendly atmosphere.
We are leaving Russia with a deep knowledge of St. Petersburg, Russian History that leaves us hungry to come again. I hope if we do make it back you can continue to guide us in our experiences here and ignite the same passion for history in us that you did on this trip.
Again, we thank you so much.
We hope the future finds you and your family happy and healthy.
Sincerely,
Jeremy and Melissa Sziklay

John Ireland
Dear Maria,
My wife Shahla and I have returned safely from our most memorable and enjoyable few days in St. Petersburg.
Apart from all the sights, we particularly enjoyed your contributions to our experience and that I am sure deserves a note of acknowledgement.
Thank you for all that helpful information – delivered with humour, slowly and in the appropriate proportion.
Our earlier experiences have been that many guides try to impart too much information – more than their guests can absorb.
I will be passing your particulars to our younger son, David Ireland, who read Russian whilst at the University of St. Andrews. He is a natural linguist and it disappoints us a little that he is not using his languages in his present work as an Investment Writer.
If you have occasions to come to London, or if you think what we could help in any way – possibly through my knowledge of medical contacts here, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Old fashioned fax is best for me but I will add my e-mail address as a post –script to this letter.
With many thanks again and very best wishes,
Yours sincerely,
John Ireland j.ireland@woodford.com

Maria,
You are a very special person and a brilliant all round guide. It wasn’t my first trip to St. Petersburg but it was the best thanks to your arrangements. Your English is excellent. I can’t imagine having a better guide. We had a great new coach and a patient driver.
Lunch at a Russian restaurant was superb and the optional Folk show was fantastic. We also enjoyed St. Isaac’s Cathedral and the mysterious Yusupov Palace.
It’s been a wonderful experience to visit St. Petersburg. Thanks for all your help.
