June - July 2019
St Petersburg & Venice
“A sublime immersion in the art, architecture & history of two extraordinary cities with the passionate, erudite and tireless Margarita & Simon. Memorable bonds and relationships were quickly formed as our group danced our way between magnificent castles, museums and galleries, indulging in all aspects of the program and experiences on offer, frequenting only the best of cafes & restaurants along the way. I cannot wait to continue this journey with them on future travels."

“This was a rare opportunity to experience art with other artists. To expand horizons through the expert guidance and extraordinary knowledge of Margarita and Simon and form ongoing friendships which nurture inspiration and the development of personal vision. An unforgettable journey of the heart for which I will always be grateful."
SALLY A. FRASER
"Led by two individuals who possess an intimate knowledge of the Art and culture of these cities, Margarita and Simon drew on their expertise to plan an outstanding itinerary that was delivered with boundless energy, passion and enthusiasm. Whilst the gems of Russian and Italian art and architecture were certainly given a spotlight, I also appreciated the time set aside to explore a little off the beaten path, where we encountered some unexpected but equally memorable gems."
"This was the most extraordinary travel experience. If you love fine art, there is no substitute for this learning experience at the home of the great masters. Margarita’s expertise has elevated my fine art skills considerably. I also made lifelong friends."
