St Petersburg, Russia

Greetings from St Petersburg! Over 20 years ago I came to St Petersburg on a school trip 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 luckily a few years later my dream came true - in 2005 I moved to St Petersburg to study at the university and stayed here.
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. In 2011 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, and show you the "face" of the city but also help you feel its "soul" (a very important word for Russians) -I'll show you places that reveal the true character of St Petersburg, as it is known and loved by locals.

As an experienced guide and a traveller I know how to organize a perfect tour.

All my tours can be easily tailored to meet your interests and time frame.

All tours are also available in German.

I am also a driver ( 15 years experience).

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

If possible, I would give Kate greater than 5 stars! I couldn't have asked for a better guide for Catherine Palace. I felt like I was spending the day with a good friend rather than a tour guide! She is full of knowledge about Russian history and is a warm and friendly conversationalist. She also was willing to work with me for a special tour which met my needs for a somewhat limited timeframe. If you are traveling to St. Petersburg, it would be a great loss to not have Kate as your guide!!
