Welcome to Saint-Petersburg - the Northern capital of Russia, its historical, architectural and cultural centre! It is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and is often called "The Northern Venice".
In personal talks I got to know my clients, I knew what they wanted, I could show places that were interesting for them particularly and tell stories which were fascinating exactly for these people.
I can also provide classic tours and unique tours which will help you to understand Russian traditions and the soul of Russian people. Besides the obvious sights that everybody needs to see like The Hermitage and The Peter and Paul fortress, The Saint Isaac's cathedral and other masterpiece of our city I'll show you the real live of Russian People.
