Elena G.

Saint Petersburg, Sankt-Peterburg, Russia

Hello, dear travelers and future visitors of Saint-Petersburg!

My name is Elena and I've been working as a tour guide since 2006.
With me your trip to Saint-Petersburg can be comfortable, interesting and you'll get a real flavour for Russian life
I was born in Saint-Petersburg (at that time Leningrad) and was growing up here absorbing beauty and culture of this amazing place. And now being a guide I love to share my admiration for its beauty with my guests. I want every visitor not just to see the beauty but also to feel the mood of Saint-Petersburg.
I will be glad to meet you at the airport, train station, sea port, advice a hotel, arrange a vehicle and tour tickets for visa-free shore tourists.
I can offer different tours, so that you could find the one that meets your expectations. Well-known palaces of Russian tzars, richly decorated cathedrals and churches. Or may be you will prefer to see the life of the locals: metro (subway) even if each station looks like underground palace, grocery market, small orthodox churches, places connected with siege of Leningrad as it's sad but very important page of our history. Or may be you have children and would like to make this trip interesting for them, so we can visit Grand Maket museum, search small statues of different animals on the streets, try to paint matreshka doll and visit one of the play grounds. In case you have your own wishes and requests, please, let me know, I'll do my best to organize everything.
Welcome to Saint-Petersburg and feel yourself special during your trip.
