Private tour guide Diana

Diana R.

Saunt-Petersburg, Russia

Hello dear traveler! My name is Diana and I will be thrilled to guide you around this wonderful city.

What would you feel when you think about Saint-Petersburg? Gray sky and rainy weather with golden spiers, rushing into the sky. . . Worlds most beautiful palaces and churches that are built on a real swamp by lives of hundreds and thousands. . . Posh restaurants and malls with rock and roll shops and gloomy pubs in a very same building. . . Lots of legends and a point where the breadth of Russian soul meets the sophisticated and pedantic West, basically Scandinavia.

I can show you Saint-Petersburg from the different sides. My tours can include whatever activity and I will show you all the faces of Saint-Petersburg, not only the "touristic" one. If you want to feel the breath of the city you should feel the mentality, the way of life of its inhabitants. From old roots of the past to the modern life, from the history, that was very hard and unstable, to nowadays and the way people live and spend their time.

I will tell now a bit about myself. I was born in Saint-Petersburg but I am half Finnish by nationality though I am cosmopolitan. I can accept the Worlds diversity and I am very tolerant as I have been living and traveling to many countries. I love Saint-Petersburg with all my passion and I want to show to the others the beauty of it and make them falling in love with it. I will also tell you about the Russian soul and mentality, always studying means understanding and that makes people of all nations to be friends and to develop good cooperation. I will show you the places I personally love and make you experience I enjoy, nothing strange, just my own.

I am quite well educated in both humanitarian and polytechnical fields that means I am able to hold the conversation and fulfill even unusual requirements.

I am free to travel with you and be your personal guide even allover Russia. I am also able to organize you some personal experience just send me a message and we can discuss and make you a very personal tour (e. g. fishing in the middle of nowhere, a week driving around the Western part of Russia, thematic memory tour of some writer) - you are welcome to ask, I will make it for you! My slogan is everything is possible.
In conclusion, if you want more than a guide, but a friend, a comfortable person that will really custom your stay in Russia-you are on the right page.

If you continue to Finland afterwards, I can help you there too. At least will give you some tips where to go and what to do.

Tervetuloa jos olet Suomalainen voimme kirjoittaa Suomeksi. Toivon olla sinulle paras opas maailmaasa!

I wish you to have the best time ever in Saint-Petersburg!

A Recent Review of this guide

We had a great tour of St. Petersburg! Our tour guide Diana R. is excellent and knowledgeable. She is a friendly nature and highly professional. She listened carefully to what we wanted to do, see and experience then she created an excellent itinerary that was unique and interesting to us so that we could see several main sites. so you don't have to worry about Metro maps, stations, directions, tickets, misleading information, you just feel safe and confident and focus on the attractions you are visiting.
