my name is Anja and I'm a tour guide in one of the most beautiful cities in the world - Saint-Petersburg, a city that is definately worth visiting . I'd be happy to show you round this magnificent city. I can propose both classical and unexpected tours.
It makes me happy to do what I love and it perfactly answers my vocation. As my background I have English linguistics and Academy of Fine Arts. I am a fully licenced and accredited professional private tour guide with 20 years of experience.
I don't overload my tourists with limitless enumerating of useless dates, names and boring narratives. The most important for me is to make your stay in Saint-Petersburg pleasant and memorable. You are always welcome to ask any questions about me and life in Russia. It's the best way to know the country and its everyday life.
Saint-Petersbourg is my native city and I love to share my admiration for its beauty with my guests.
I was born in a family closely related to the Russian history. My grandmother's aunt was shot together with the royal family.
I have always held a passion for Saint-Petersburg and its fascinating history. My specialities range from day trips out of the city to shore excursions and full day city tours of Saint-Petersburg and beyond. I pride myself on getting as much as possible into your valuable time at a pace that suits you. Tell me what interests you and I'll create a tour just for you. I am always open to new creative tasks my clients could possibly make.
I organaze visa free shore excurtions.
Feel free to get in touch and let's work out how to make the most of your time here.
It's my job to show you the wonders of Saint-Petersburg so that you go home with precious memories to cherish forever. And a lot of photos of course!
I'll be glad to help you with your evening program - theatre, restaurant, folk show
A Recent Review of this guide
Anna V showed up at the pier on time. The car was an 8-passenger Mercedes Minivan as promised. Places visited as planned: The Faberge Museum/The Youssoupov Palace/Peterhof. Anna V arranged lunch at an authentic Russian restaurant where we get to taste the various Russian dishes. Anna V was professional and courteous. We enjoyed the excursion and would definitely recommend her to anyone.
