Marina U.

Sochi, Russian Federation, Russia

Hi! Guten Tag! My name is Marina and I am a certified and legalized private guide here in Sochi, Russia.

My guiding experience is extensive. After graduating from State Linguistic and pedagogic University I started working for the state-owned "Intourist" Co. branch in Sochi , which was the leading Co. in the Soviet Union to host foreign tourists. That's where I was properly trained and certified as a guide. Best city lecturers on history, geography and other subjects read their lectures to Intourist guides throughout the whole period of work. So, the Intourist guides are special and there are not many of us.
During the hot winter Olympic days I was accredited by the Organizing Olympic committee to tour guests around.

I have been living in my resort-city for 36 years and I know its past and its present in comparison. Sochi has much to tell you and it is my pleasure to present it to you.
It is a special city, famous for its natural beauties and known as a summer residence of Russia's leaders. Some of the places we can visit include natural attractions and historical places, achievements of the Stalin era and those of the latest period.
Sochi is a host city of Winter Olympics 2014 , Formula-1 race and oncoming 2018 FIFA WORLD CUP. So we can visit the Olympic sites both on the seaside and in the mountains to see the tracks of Formula-1 race and the Fisht FiFa stadium.
Grouped and private visitors are welcome.
For cruisers a Visa-free entry is organized by me. To let you pass the passport control I will supply you with a Tour Ticket/Voucher (which is called Blanket Visa). Each passenger must carry a passport, Tour Ticket and migration card (given out onboard), at all times when going ashore and returning to the ship.

I strive for the highest quality in each of my tour experiences and do appreciate your positive impressions brought away when visiting Sochi.
