Petersburg. I love the city with all my heart and want to share my love to St. Petersburg with you. I can make your trip to Russia enjoyable and memorable!
A visit to St. Petersburg is a dream for lots of people and I am eager to make your dream come true. As the former capital of Russia, St. Petersburg was built up by the best European and Russian architects of the 18th and the 19th centuries and remains one of the most beautiful cities in the world with its magnificent palaces, world-famous churches and remarkable parks.
I can offer you a wide range of tours starting from classic ones with the city tour, visits to tsar's palaces, admirable churches and the most beautiful parks. For those who have already visited St. Petersburg once, I can offer more specialized tours devoted to Russian culture and literature. If you are interested in Russian Revolution, War time and Soviet epoch, I can provide you with a special tour dedicated to that period of Russian history.
If desired I can organize cultural events or an evening program like a visit to a ballet or a Russian folklore show. Entertainment, restaurants, shopping - I am open to all suggestions to customize your tour and create the tour of a lifetime!
I will take care of transfers and the transportation to get around the city and its suburbs. Come and enjoy yourself in the "seaside paradise", the nickname given to the city by its founder, Peter the Great.
As for my background, I graduated from the faculty of foreign languages and speak fluent English. I am interested tin Russian history and culture, literature and everything connected with the cultural life.
Welcome to St. Petersburg and get an unforgettable experience of visiting Russian most beautiful city!
A Recent Review of this guide
Alexandra was simply the BEST tour guide I have ever had. She provided a private tour for myself, my son, and my two nephews (not an easy task given that 2 of the participants have limited attention spans). She was extremely flexible with us and kept the tour moving. We were very late getting started on our tour on the second day ( our fault, not hers) and she was very understanding and made sure we still made it in time for our designated tour for that day. Simply amazing. I highly recommend her tour
