I lived for 2 years in Germany and for 1 year in Portugal, currently I am living in Saint Petresburg again. This is the city with the unique atmosphere and architecture, where almost every building is hiding an awesome story. Saint Petersburg is obviously my favourite city in Russia and I would like to share my passion about it with my guests:)
I am a former ballet dancer, now I am studying psychology. I traveled a lot in Europe and Russia and have always planned trips on my own. I know how important it is to be guided by local people and how more useful their advices are, comparing to tour guides. I worked as a tour guide in Saint Petersburg and realised that standard tours are not my cup of tea. I know that touristic must-dos and must-sees will never help you to explore the most important things: the atmosphere of the city and the mentality of local people.
Of course, the imperial part of Saint Petersburg with its palaces and parks is really impressive, but common houses are even more intriguing. Sometimes we want to know how life looked like for a regular inhabitant of a city and see spots, which did not become tourist sites. So this is the part I am concentrating on in my walks.
St. Petersburg is famous for its unusual well-yards and apartment houses. We will get inside some of them and see original stucco, marble stairs and stained glass windows. We will walk through historical district, which is not overloaded by tourists. I am also keen on searching different unusual locations outside of the city and taking photos, so road trip and photoshoot are also possible:)
This flat fee is effective for up to 4 travellers, applied for every localie and destination you choose. 5+ is twice the standard rate.
For a full day, it is about 8 hours of activities together with our locals.
Your ½ day walk with one of our local takes half a day usually takes 4-5 hours.
