Olesya M.

Saint Petersburg, Russia

Hi, I am Olesya, I would be glad to take care of you in beautiful St Petersburg!

I am a fully licensed local guide with 10 years experience. I create customized "SKIP the line" tours/shore excursions that suit your needs, interests, and budget, carefully crafting your very personalized itinerary according to your wishes. According to my guiding experience, I have my own great itineraries that always click well with first-time visitors.

Maybe you have always dreamt of enjoying the famous Russian ballet "Swan Lake" from the Tsar's box or really looking forward to seeing walking bears on the streets of Russia? ;)
Please, share with me what you like, what excites you and I will come up with the ideas and suggestions how to make your long-desired tour to St Petersburg exciting!

Feel free to scroll down and click on any of my tours to view the carefully crafted itineraries made by me especially for this summer season of 2018. Drop me a message to CUSTOMIZE your tour, to discuss the details and check the availability and prices. You will be pleasantly amazed!

A Recent Review of this guide

I asked for an alternative tour to help me with my research about post-war housing in Russia. Olesya helped me perfectly with interviewing people. I can understand that it was a strange request for her, but she was 100% motivated! Her English is perfect, she is very friendly and I can recommend her to everyone.
