Maria K.

Sankt Petersburg, Sankt-Peterburg, Russia

My name is Maria and I am a free-lance professional guide providing tours in English for individials, groups and families.

I am licensed to guide in museums of Saint-Petersburg. I can offer full variety of tours. They are themed walking and driving tours, museum visits, shore excursins for cruise ship passengers.
I have been working as the professional guide for over 20 years. I been to many countries and familiar with traveler's needs and concerns. I studied History of World Culture at the St. Peterburg State University. I have got a diploma in Comparative Analysis of the Interaction of the Cultures.
I started to guide as it was the practical part of my research work and it became my profession and my inspiration.
On my tours I try to inspire my guests to fall in love with St. Petersburg and appreciate its uniqueness and beauty. I know how to make the visit safe and comfortable and happy to provide information and paper support for Cruise passengers.

My hobbies& Interests are as well. I am fond of classical music. Speaking about ballet. . . . I prefer opera, though I'll never say "no" to really good ballet performance. I am a member of a literary club at my local district library , where we are to discuss a chosen novel once in a month. I prefer to read paper books or listen an audio ones.
My friends are crazy about quizes & mind games. So I had to join several teames and I like it. When I am on tour my tourists is my team. And I really win when they are happy with the tour I'm in charge of!
