Petersburg. I have witnessed first hand the radical changes that took place in our country in the 1980s and 90s. The transition from the USSR to the democratic state happened in front of my eyes. The Iron Curtain was lifted up and our country opened to international tourists, as well as the whole world. This was a very important moment.
I have been working as a guide since 2011, but I feel that I have always been a representative of my city. It gives me great pleasure to meet people coming for the first time to St. Petersburg, and lead them through the most beautiful and interesting places, showing both the museums and palaces, as well as diving into the ordinary life, revealing scenes hidden from the eyes of tourists.
I am always happy to meet new people from around the world!
A Recent Review of this guide
5 stars to Anna is short as it should be 6. She has been an excellent guide to us since the beginning. Upon a more or less elaborated wish list she built immediately a very well rounded program and communication with her before the trip was fluid and accommodating. During the visit, it was a real pleasure to have her by us as always looking for the best. The visit to an authentic Russian family was a real experience. Thanks Anna, Galina, Anatoly and Max and all the best for future! I DO FULLY RECOMMEND
