Private tour guide Kate

Kate G.

St Petersburg, Russia

Hello, my name is Kate (or Katya) and I am a licensed guide and an enthusiastic, energetic, knowledgeable and very communicative person.

I came to St Petersburg for the first time many years ago and as soon as I saw the city I realized that it was the place I belonged to. I loved everything about it - its people, culture, architecture, huge bridges drawn at nights, magical white nights. It became my dream to live here and fortunately a few years later my dream came true - I moved to St Petersburg to study at the university.
A lot of years have past and my love to the city has just grown together with my knowledge about it. And then I thought - why not to share it with other people. This is why I decided to become a tour guide. I took a special 6-month tour guide training, got all the necessary licenses and started the job I really love.

During my tours you will discover the magic of St Petersburg with all its history, traditions, architecture, and rich cultural heritage. I not only can show you around the most remarkable highlights of the city and its marvelous suburbs, such as the Catherine Palace with its world famous Amber room or Peterhof - the Russian Versailles, and show you the "face" of the city but also help you feel its "soul" (a very important word for Russians) - through getting to know locals, experiencing Russian lifestyle, modern culture and amazing Russian cuisine.

If you have special preferences, my tours can be easily tailored to meet your interests.
Feel free to ask any questions.
If you are a ship traveler, I can also arrange a blanket visa for you
All tours are also available in German.
I am also a driver ( 15 years experience). My car is an air-conditioned Hyundai Creta (2018).

Hallo. Ich heiße Katja und bin eine Reiseführerin. Ich bin nach St Petersburg vor 10 Jahren umgezogen und seitdem bin ich in die Stadt verliebt. Und je langer ich als Reiseführerin arbeite und je mehr ich über die Stadt entdecke, desto mehr liebe ich sie. Warum?
Denn ist sie eine harmonische Mischung von Europa und Russland, hat eine kurze aber sehr reiche und tragische Geschichte und denn hat die Altstadt mit Flüssen und Kanälen überquert eine unglaubliche romantische Atmosphäre.
Um meine Liebe zu meiner Stadt an meine Gäste weitergeben zu können, habe ich 2011 den Kurs in Fremdenführerausbildung absolviert und Lizenzprüfungen an allen wichtigsten Museen in St. Petersburg gemacht. Seitdem arbeite ich als private Reiseführerin und wie meine Bewertungen sagen bin ich sehr gut darin.
Ich und mein Auto (Hyundai Creta 2018 mit Klimaanlage) stehen Ihnen zur Verfügung und wir tun unser Bestes um Ihre Aufenthalt in St Petersburg spannend und unvergesslich zu machen.
Fragen und Vorschläge sind willkommen. Für die Die in St Petersburg mit einem Kreuzfahrtschiffreisende ankommen, kann ich auch einen visum-freien Eintritt besorgen.
Mit vorreservierten Eintrittskarten sparen Sie viel Zeit und Energie.

A Recent Review of this guide

Kate is very informative and personable. Not only did we see the main sights of St Petersburg but, at our request, we had a superb afternoon of Soviet history on the Metro and at Finland Station. In addition, Kate found a great selection of local restaurants for lunch each day that really enhanced the experience. Well done Kate.
