My name is Nikolai. With my knowledge of St. Petersburg and its environs, I can show you many of its out-of-the-way places; places not usually seen by the casual tourist as well as historical monuments, museums, palaces. If you wish to visit St. Petersburg, a truly pleasurable and unique experience can be yours. Simply contact me to set up a personally guided tour of the City of the Czars.
A Recent Review of this guide
We had Nikolai as a guide last year and, returning this year with a friend, engaged him again, this time for a tour to Russia's WW1 museum (which is terrific, but requires the help of someone fluent in both Russian and English) and the Catherine Palace. Not only is Nikolai extraordinarily knowledgeable, he is also incredibly flexible and responsive to his guests' needs; he adjusted the timing and order of his standard tour to our preferences, and made sure we caught the train at the end of the tour.
