My primary purpose in writing this to you is to thank you again for the fantastic tour of St. Petersburg you arranged for our 50th Anniversary party of eleven people in early July. We could not have had a better guide and driver than Inna and Alexander. Being able to complete all the sightseeing we did in our limited two days with them without ever having to wait in line was totally unexpected and appreciated. Our seats at the ballet were great and the performance was beautiful. Both Inna and Alexander were always up-beat, friendly and anxious to help. Inna's knowledge of St. Petersburg is truly outstanding and the love she has for the city contributed to our enjoyment of her clear presentation of the history of each site we visited.
Our tour with Alex's tours group was definitely the highlight of our entire trip and we do most sincerely thank you for making it just that!
2017 was a year of celebration as it was our 50th wedding anniversary! Our celebration began on June 3rd, the date of our wedding, with quite elaborate decorations of our yard and car arranged by Becky and her sons. We then enjoyed a private meal at the Chef's Table of Damian's Cucina Italiana in Houston which was all very, very nice, but was only the start of things to come. Our really super great celebration began a month later accompanied by our children and our grandchildren and Judy's brother, David, and his wife, Barbara, cruising the Baltic Sea. We gathered in Stockholm, where we enjoyed touring the city for a couple of days prior to boarding Celebrity's Silhouette for the cruise. A highlight of our visit to Stockholm was the opportunity to meet a distant Swedish relative of Judy's family. Our cruise enabled us to visit Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Tallinn, Warnemunde, Copenhagen, Oslo, and Amsterdam. By staying an extra day in Amsterdam, we enjoyed a day trip to Brugge, Belgium, a lovely picturesque city.
We were truly spoiled by Alex's Tours in St. Petersburg who we had arranged to guide our group for the two days we spent in that most unique city. Please let us put you in contact with Alex should your travels take you to the Baltic. His group does a super job and offers services in many of the other cities we visited as well as St. Petersburg. Needless to say, we all had a super great time!
