  • Julian, UK
    I would highly recommend her
    Olesya helped me to organize an event for 20+ oil executives in St.Petersburg. She has a great knowledge of the city and was able to make excellent recommendations for hotels, restaurants and tourist visit areas where all could feel safe. She is very friendly with good language skills and can easily mix with all cultures. I would highly recommend her. Julian, UK

    Thank you for all you did for me
    I have some wonderful memories of StPetersburg, thanks to both you and Maria, and I really do hope to come once more as I know there is so much more to see and enjoy. Thank you for all you did for me, Best regards, Christina Backus, Australia
  • Carol Brown, UK
    Has a great rapport with people
    Olesya at Babushka Travel was my guide on my first visit to Russia 5 years ago. I work in the cultural sector myself and was very impressed by her knowledge of the history of St Petersburg and its art, architecture etc. As well as seeing the 'usual' sites on that and subsequent trips she introduced me to modern Russia. Olesya's english language skills are excellent, she has a great sense of humour, is very professional in her approach and has a great rapport with people. Carol Brown, UK
  • May Lee, Australia
    I have recommended you to all of my friends!

  • Steve and Sally Leonard and Forrest Owen, USA
    It was such a pleasure to have you for our guide
    We are home at last after a wonderful trip to Russia. It was such a pleasure to have you for our guide. Also your decision to go to Peterhof when it was sunny was perfect. The cruise had a tour two days later to Peterhof and it rained very hard. We hope some day to return to St. Petersburg and will certainly take you and your future husband out for dinner. If you visit the U.S.A. be sure to let us know. Once again, thank you and good luck in life. Your American friends,   Steve and Sally Leonard and Forrest Owen, USA
  • Thank you once again
    Just a short line to thank you for our fantastic guide to St Petersburg, we all have commented on both your knowledge and your pride of St Petersburg and Russia, which is a real asset and a very unique quality. You were a real hit with my mother-in-law Jay and her sister Phoebe, I think that you catered for all our parties needs to perfection for the older ones down to the teenagers.We are now back in the UK and it is raining!!!!! (as it always does in the UK) and we are back to work, living on our memories of our holiday. Should you ever find yourself near us in Winchester, Hampshire UK, please contact us and we can show you our historic city.. Thank you once again for our life long memories of St Petersburg.
