This tour was one of the highlights of my 7 days in St Petersburg during the World Cup. Elena is an excellent guide with great knowledge of the city as it is now and was in Dostoevsky's time, the author's life and works and, specifically, Crime and Punishment. We walked the streets described so vividly in the novel, seeing so many of the buildings, bridges and canals from the book. An unexpected bonus was entering a courtyard off one of the streets and going inside an apartment block similar to those depicted in the book. One thing to be aware of is that the Dostoevsky Museum is closed on Monday so we couldn't incorporate that into the tour. Otherwise this tour could not be faulted. Since returning to Australia I have again re-read Crime and Punishment and the tour has further enhanced my appreciation of this extraordinary book. Many thanks Elena!

This tour was one of the highlights of our stay in St Petersburg. Our guide, Elena, was excellent. As we retraced the footsteps of Rodion Raskolinkov, she brought the world of Crime and Punishment vividly to life. Points that had seemed a little obscure in the book became clear. But this, very thoroughly researched, tour is not just about Crime and Punishment, or even Dostoyevsky, it gives a wonderful insight to a period in St Petersburg's history. So, whether you are a fan of Dostoyevsky or not, it is a very enjoyable way to gain a deeper understanding of this fascinating city.
