Saint Petersburg, Russia

Hi! I am a 100% Saint Petersburg lady and I arrange customized tours focused on ART, HISTORY, LOCAL LIFE experience and . . . whatever could be of your interest.

It would be my pleasure to be your guide in my city.

Born and raised in Saint Petersburg, I've loved walking around and discovering my city since I was a teenager. I finished special courses for guides to fulfill my dream, to do what I love as a job! I'm a licensed guide and a member of the Saint Petersburg's Guide's Association.

I'm an open-minded and friendly person. I traveled a lot so I know what is the key to having a good time in a foreign country and how to give you, with charm and knowledge, the insider's perspective of this wonderful city.

I really enjoy taking care of my guests and I like to transform my tours into an enjoyable conversation about Saint Petersburg and the things you are most interested in, rather than a continuous monologue about the city. So with me as your guide, you'll have a historian and expert at your service, but especially a new Russian friend: we'll discover together famous sites but also local traditions, culture and food.

Saint Petersburg offers an endless variety of tours and I will help you plan your day according to your preferences and interests. I can customize the tours for you based on what you want to do, just give me the details and I will prepare your own tour that you can book.
