Pavel S.

Saint Petersburg, Russia

Hello everyone! My name is Pavel. I'm a fully-licensed guide in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

Being born here, I have always been interested in art, history and literature, which eventually brought me into this profession. Now, I have been working for three years as a tour guide with many tourists from different countries and of various interests. I am easy going, knowledgeable about the history of St. Petersburg and Russia, and have a good command of English. I can give you advise about where to go in the evening, where/what to eat and where to find local shops. My private tours are designed to create wonderful and lasting memories of beautiful Saint Petersburg and its suburbs.

The entire centre of Saint Petersburg is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, there is so much to see!
It may be dificult to choose, so I am always glad to help you to plan your visit. Please look through my offers, maybe you like one of them. If you want something special I will create a bespoke tour for you to have the best experience in St. Petersburg.

If you like to explore more of Russia, I can organise it as well. It is only about 4-hour ride by a high-speed train from St. Petersburg to Moscow, and Veliky Novgorod 'the First Capital of Russia' is about 3 hours away.

I provide blanket visas (tour-tickets) for cruise travelers.

I can help you to buy tickets to ballet, concerts or whatever else you like.

If you are planning a visit to St. Petersburg, please do contact me.

I am very much looking forward to meet you during your visit to Saint Petersburg!
