Maya B.

Saint Petersburg, Russia

Hello! My name is Maya and I'm in love with St. Petersburg.

In my opinion it's the best city in the world and I hope you will understand me after a tour :)

I'm a licensed guide in almost all museums and palaces of Saint-Petersburg and its suburbs. I was born here and several generations of my family also lived in this beautiful city.
I studied languages in the University, then I finished the school of guides and also spend some time studying in each museum to get the permission for guiding there.
So you can be sure about the information I give :)

St. Petersburg is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, the Venice of the North, that used to be a capital of Russian Empire. It is also a cultural capital of Russia, because of a huge number of museums, theatres and palaces. St Petersburg is a World's Leading Cultural City Destination of 2016, 2017 and 2018.

The most important to me is to make you happy, so if you have some other ideas (even if it's a skydiving)- let me know and I will help you!

All my tours can be customised according to your request.

I think the best thing in the world is to hear "We will definitely come back!" ^^
