Elena L.

Saint Petersburg, Russia

Hello, dear travelers! My name is Elena; I'm free-lance English speaking guide with licenses for all museums in St.

Petersburg and its suburbs. I am 31. I graduated from the Russian State University of Culture and Arts.

I enjoy my job very much and have been in the tourism business for 6 years. I love my city so much that I want the entire world to come and share Russian culture, history and the magnificent surroundings. I also hope I can show you the heart and soul of the city! As your tour guide, I will try to make your trip an unforgettable experience and know that your visit will be one of the best memories of your life.

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.

I'll do my best to make your journey interesting and comfortable.

Evening program:
Ballet or opera
Folk show

Jazz on the boat

Please note GOLDEN ROOM IN HERMITAGE should be booked 1 month in advance!!!

A Recent Review of this guide

This 2-day tour and our guide Elena were fantastic. She took us to the sites that were most important and that we were most interested in seeing but she also accommodated some special requests for shopping and mailing postcards. We enjoyed our two days of touring St. Petersburg immensely and look forward to coming back to spend more time. We definitely will use "Lena" again and would recommend her highly to help make your visit to this amazing city memorable.
