Svetlana B.

Saint Petersburg, Sankt-Peterburg, Russia

Hello, dear guests! My name is Svetlana and I'm a native of St.

Petersburg, so I'm proud to call it my hometown. I am totally in love with my city and very happy and proud to show you around fabulous St. Petersburg. To be your guide is the most interesting, breathtaking and suitable work for me. It would be my great pleasure to show you all the main highlights of St. Petersburg and its suburbs and to make your stay enjoyable. I have been working as a tour guide for 10 years now.

Do you want to take photos in beautiful places? I'll show them to you!
Do you want more details form Russian history? I'm keen on history and we can talk about any topic that interests you. I like getting to know people of all nationalities and backgrounds, so we will have a great time! My aim will be to make you fall in love with the city of White Nights, draw-bridges, rivers and canals, unique architecture and rich history. There is so much to see here: from the beautiful sights along rivers and canals embankments to the fantastic museum collections.

As an experienced traveler, I'm absolutely sure that St. Petersburg is one of the most unique and magnificent cities in the world and it's really worth visit. Though I have lived here all my life, every time I walk around the city I cannot help but wonder and admire its magic beauty, its broad, straight avenues, majestic palaces and cathedrals, green parks, countless bridges and canals. I enjoy sharing the experiences about life "behind the Iron Curtain. " Do not let unfounded concerns of logistics, formalities or any such issues enter your thoughts. you will experience the natives' true treasures and touch the soul of the city and culture that can only be felt with an individualized visit facilitated by a true insider. We have so many festivals, performances, and all kinds of different events! I want you to feel the wonderful atmosphere of my beloved city and to make them feel a part of it!

I'm able to organize absolutely different tours for everyone: private tours for cruise passengers (I'll do all needed visa arrangements), walking tours, tours for big groups. You just need to wright me and we will do your best holidays together.

Welcome to St. Petersburg! Prepare to be impressed by its breathtaking beauty and the splendor of its museums and palaces!
