Around St Petersburg - Day 1

On our first day, we were met by a guide and a driver, and took our pre-arranged tour. Much to our surprise. Guides and drivers seem to travel in pairs. Even on our rides from the train station and to the airport the driver was accompanied by a tour guide -- possibly a hangover from the Soviet Intourist era?
I tried to omit most of the standard postcard pictures. Others do them better.
