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.

Ballet or opera

Jazz on the boat

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

A Recent Review of this guide

Wish there were six stars. Elena is a charming, attentive and very knowledgeable guide. She went above and beyond to tailor our itinerary, and made sure our days were well-balanced, with some rest points. (SPB can be exhausting!) Our 2-person bucket list was more than fulfilled during our 3-day visit. Her driver also inspired confidence. Over lunch each day Elena shared her family's experiences of living through some key events in modern Russian history. Thanks for a superb tour, Elena!
