Welcome to St Petersburg Your Private Guided Tour


It is a perfect tour for first-time visitors to get acquainted with St. Petersburg, learn about the city from a local, get tons of useful tips about various aspects of your stay here, try out local food and/or drinks and have a truly Russian experience!

We shall have a leisurely stroll along the main streets of Saint Petersburg with a friendly local guide (me!).
You will marvel at gorgeous cathedrals, palaces and numerous beautiful buildings and learn about the Russian history embodied in the city, listening to stories about people who lived here.

We will be able to go inside of many places if you wish.
We will be using public transportation including metro and also taxi.

As all my tours this one can be customised to meet all your needs (it can be turned into a visa-free tour for cruisers, we can visit any museum, etc. )

For more ideas you may look at my other tours and/or at my credentials.

And don't hesitate to ask me any questions, i'm always glad to hear from you!
