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
Our 3-day tour with Anna was wonderful: Very comprehensive, engaging, and perfectly paced! Our interests are wide, but Anna very thoughtfully put together a personalized itinerary for us, and even then she was willing (& able!) to improvise on the spot when we wanted to add a visit to the Tikhvin Cemetery and Nevsky Monastery! Anna's English is flawless and precise, and she is a very personable and warm person who shares with us her knowledge of her magnificent city like a friend. Thank you, Anna!
