Valeria F.

Saint Petersburg, Russia

Dear guests! Welcome to St. Petersburg! Let me help you to discover this magical city which I do adore.

Visiting this place is a real battle of choices! One can find here breathtaking views, the finest architectural ensembles, 10 percent of cultural heritage of whole Russia and vivid evidences of different events reflected the history of the country.
I have been working as a tour guide for the last 8 years and really know how to fine-tune any itinerary to fit the interests, the personal pace and the mood condition of every guest of St. Petersburg. You would be able to be sure that every tour will be catered with a personal touch! Please do not hesitate to ask me how to enjoy the city highlights, to taste the Russian cuisine, to satisfy your interests to different events having taken place to be here (Imperial time, Russian revolutions, the Siege of Leningrad, Soviet epoch, Contemporary times, Arts. . . ) even getting the painting master-class in the Imperial Porcelain Factory or visiting the Backstage of Mariinsky Theater or Russian Village would be a great idea and kind of exciting thing for me to be organized!

Definitely I graduated from the University, special Training Courses of guides, possess all the necessary certificates and licenses to run the tours in St. Petersburg and its vicinities and use to attend different lectures, studies and read tons of books to improve my knowledges. The city itself is a real inspiration for me as well as your curiosity to it.

I have got my private air conditioned and fully equipped Volvo XC60 car which can fit up to 3 people comfortably. But please enquire for larger groups and would find any transport to place your group.

Looking forward to seeing you in St. Petersburg and I would share my passion to this place with you!

A Recent Review of this guide

Valeria was a fantastic tour guide. Her knowledge of Russian art and history was amazing! I had my ninety year old parents with me and Valeria's care and concern for them was wonderful. She adjusted our pace so everyone had a great time. We'll definitely be going back and definitely seeing Valeria again. Well worth the money and time. Elie Rivollier
