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. Though I'm new in this company I have a large experience in guiding, I'm in this business all my life.
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 18 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 is a true art lover & teacher. Guided our group of 4 cruisers through Staff Bldg & Hermitage. In a short time, she gave a course in Impressionism - offering insights into lives of artists, forms & subjects, relations to social & art developments. On short notice, Anna got wheelchair access with staff. Expertly navigated way to key works through Hermitage, contextualizing many pieces with ease. Equally at adept at Russian & art history, life of the Palace & Museum collection. DELIGHTFUL.
