Often you don't know beforehand what your plans will be for the day. So, you would prefer to get up in the morning, to meet your personal guide and a driver and then decide. It might be nice relaxing day just going through the city being lost in its charming atmosphere, or probably you have strong intentions to visit art galleries or private workshops of the artists, or …do something else entirely to acquaint yourself with the local culture.

Hello, dear travelers! My name is Elena; I'm free-lance English speaking guide with licenses for all museums in St. Petersburg and its suburbs. I am 39. I graduated from the Russian State University of Culture and Arts.

As your tour guide, I will try to make your trip an unforgettable experience and know that your visit will be one of the best memories of your life.
Welcome to Saint-Petersburg - the Northern capital of Russia, its historical, architectural and cultural centre! It is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and is often called "The Northern Venice".
In personal talks I got to know my clients, I knew what they wanted, I could show places that were interesting for them particularly and tell stories which were fascinating exactly for these people.
I can also provide classic tours and unique tours which will help you to understand Russian traditions and the soul of Russian people. Besides the obvious sights that everybody needs to see like The Hermitage and The Peter and Paul fortress, The Saint Isaac's cathedral and other masterpiece of our city I'll show you the real live of Russian People.
I'll do my best to make your journey interesting and comfortable.
