Pavel S.

Saint Petersburg, Russia

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

I would be glad to be your guide in the city.

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 an 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, its environs, and the Russian region around the city. I specialise in private one-party tours.

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 expirience in St. Petersburg.

If you woud 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 can help you to by tickets to ballet, concerts or whatever else you like.

If you are planning a visit to St. Petersburg, please do contact me. If you have a cruise with one of ports of call in my city, please consider booking me early, as we have a very busy time from May to September.

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