What our clients say
I am 33 years old and was born in Leningrad. I have been working as a tour guide since 2003. I can speak both English and German, and my goal is always to give an excellent tour to our customers so they can enrich thier knowledge of St. Petersburg and truly enjoy their stay. I graduated the Herzen State Pedagogical University in 2004 with a degree in linguistics. I have also taken art courses at the Hermitage and The Russian Museum of St. Petersburg. I am an energetic, creative person who also enjoys traveling and sightseeing, exploring new cultures and art.
St. Petersburg is my native city and the birthplace of my parents and grandparents. I grew up in the historical centre of the city and its beauty and spirit became a natural part of my consciousness. An integral part of my school education was intimately getting to know the town and its environs, its history and its mysteries, its creators and arts. After school I went to St. Petersburg University to study arts, literature and languages. This helped me to appreciate my native city in a wider cultural and historical context. The city – with its white nights, its grandeur, its majesty – was a romantic place to grow up in and enjoy in my younger years. I was in love with St. Petersburg and it felt like a natural choice to enter the Intourist guide courses and qualify as a guide and interpreter. Since then I have been working as a guide and immensely enjoy revealing the majestic beauty of the city, its history, its mysterious spirit and cultural life to the guests of St. Petersburg.
I have travelled a lot and the more I travel, the more I appreciate the special attraction of my beloved city, one of the most fascinating places on Earth. It is my privilege to share my knowledge and admiration of this great place with those who come to see it. I want them to feel the atmosphere and majesty and imperial grandeur of this fabulous city.
I think my career as a tour guide was predetermined. I’ve always loved my native city, St. Petersburg, I've always loved studying English as a second language and I've always loved meeting all kinds of different people from all over the world. I graduated from St. Petersburg State University with a degree in Linguistics. While I was studying in the University I took guiding courses and became a certified guide of St. Petersburg. I was lucky to start my career during the time when the Soviet regime collapsed and Russia was opening up to the rest of the world. This time provided lots of opportunities in tourism. I started traveling with groups through the former 15 republics of the USSR which had just became independent at that time. I also took tourist groups to China, Mongolia, Iran and Eastern Europe. All this experience made me appreciate my native city even more and gave me the opportunity to show it in a different perspective while comparing it with various cities of Russia and other countries. St. Petersburg is absolutely unique and I’ll be happy to convey all of its wonders to you on my tours.
I am one of those lucky ones who really loves their job. I have 10 years experience in this profession and I am a licensed guide for all of our major museums. I am also a happy mother of a 18 years old son who shares my passion for history and foreign languages.
I am totally in love with my city and very happy and proud to show you around fabulous St. Petersburg. There is so much to see here: from the beautiful sights along rivers and canals embankments to the fantastic museum collections. I am especially interested in history and arts. St. Petersburg has accumulated an outstanding heritage since the days of its foundation. Many of our guests come back here again and again to see and experience more and it is a pleasure to see old friends and to meet new ones from all over the world and to show them something new each time.
I don't pretend: I really love everyone coming to St.Petersburg! I've tried a dozen of different jobs but more then 20 years ago I noticed that I loved taking people around the city since my early childhood and decided that this is what I really wanted to do for the rest of my life.
ART IS IN MY HEART.
Being a guide is truly amazing! It's an opportunity to share what I really love: my city, irresistible St. Petersburg, and my interest in art and history. I am enthusiastic about the city and want to make your experience unforgettable.
My other passion is music. That's why I work as an interpreter for the Mariinsky Theatre of opera and ballet. If you decide to complete your day of exploring the city with a gorgeous show in the magnificent theatre, I can advise you of what is worth seeing. Goethe once said "architecture is frozen music", so St. Petersburg is a symphony in stone. Please, come and "listen" to it!
Dear guests of one of the most beautiful cities in the world! Let me help you to discover the grandeur of St. Petersburg, its inner world and magical soul, and the parts of Russian history you would be astounded with. I am a fully licensed guide-interpreter and it gives me a fantastic opportunity to meet different people from all over the world. On my tours, I do my best to share my knowledge, skills and the emotions I have associated with St. Petersburg.
I was born in the USSR and have witnessed the Soviet epoch, the time of the "Iron Curtain" and of course current day. Despite the relatively young age of the city (founded in 1703), it has witnessed a lot of historical events: namely, being the capital of Imperial Russia, two Russian revolutions, two World Wars, and one of the most dramatic calamities in the world – the Siege of Leningrad. I like to improve my knowledge by reading tons of books, attending lectures, visiting theaters etc. History, fine arts and architecture are my passions. St. Petersburg is an exciting fusion of Russian style with European influences. I urge you to discover it with your own eyes!
I'm glad that I have so much to say about my own home city. Since a really young age I've been thinking about becoming a tour guide. There is something to be said for being able to represent and talk about a city whose relatively short history contains so much mysticism, romanticism and glory. My study has always been connected with languages, and not long time ago I decided to complete the guide course. I truly enjoy it - I can honestly say that it doesn't even feel like a "job".
I love talking to people. I also work as an interpreter and a teacher whih has also given me plenty of great experience. So, it will be an absolute pleasure for me to show you the entire beauty and charm of the Northern Capital of Russia.
Even though my full name is Dasha Gutova, many guests know me as simply "Dasha from Russia". I graduated from St. Petersburg University of Culture and Art where I specialized in art history, literature and the history of Russia. I'm very fortunate to be doing what I really love and to be able to share my fascination of this amazing city with its guests.
I’ve been working as a guide in St. Petersburg for 14 years already. This area is extremely rich with beauty, art, history and culture. It is an exceptional place - one that combines culture with the enchantment of the poetic White Nights. When you arrive in St. Petersburg, I'll be exited to take you around, to uncover "the Russian soul" of the city hidden behind the classical beauty of European facades.
I like to think of the world as magnificent and mysterious, and that one of its great mysteries is St. Petersburg. Peter the Great’s paradise will certainly amaze you with its gold domes, jewel-boxes palaces, granite embankments, and Egyptian sphinxes. You will also feel compelled to sink into the deep, cold water of the Neva river, see with your own eyes the highest column in the world, the world's largest triumphal arch, as well as many other “most” and “biggest” things…
I was born in this magical place. It will be my pleasure to enchant you with the mysterious world of Saint Petersburg!
Let me introduce myself: my name is Nina Kazarina and I am 34 years old. I have an education from one of the most prestigious universities in Russia, Hertsen University, where I studied at the Department of Foreign Languages, where I learned to speak fluent English and conversational Spanish. I am an accredited and certificated guide by the St. Petersburg Government Committee for Investments and Strategic projects.
I have a great desire to work with YOU, my guests! I am responsible, energetic and dynamic. I am able to work with everyone from children to adults, to large groups, independent travellers and VIP clients. I love my city and I dream about my work the whole year.
My name is Maxim Komarov. I am 32 years old and for more than 10 years now I have shared my passion for St. Petersburg, my hometown, with visitors from all over the world. If St. Petersburg is the city of your dreams, I can help you realise that dream.
As a licensed tour guide, I can promise you an exciting and memorable visit to our world famous museums, palaces, cathedrals and gardens.
As a local, I can show you the more unusual, off-the-beaten-track venues where you can feel like a true Russian.
As a friend, I will try to make my city your second home.
With love from St. Petersburg,
¡Muy buenos días a todos!

I was born and raised in St. Petersburg, like seven generations of my ancestors before me, so I had no other option but to love the city with all my heart and share my enthusiasm with its guests. In my work as a guide I always make sure the visitors of the city feel very comfortable, as if they were travelling with a good friend who happens to have abundant knowledge about the history of the place, its cultural peculiarities, its nicest restaurants and the ways to avoid crowds in the museums. I am looking forward to welcoming you in St. Petersburg and helping you get the best touring experience!
Dear guests, welcome to St. Petersburg!
I'll show you one of the most beautiful cities in the world, which will undoubtedly be the highlight of your trip. I've been in love with this city ever since my childhood, when I would come to St.Petersburg to visit relatives. Since that time, having lived here for thirty years, I still admire its fantastic architecture, museums, gardens and parks, and know that I will continue to admire it for many more years to come!
I was born and raised in St. Petersburg. My background is in law and economics: I graduated from the Department of International Relations in the Institute of Foreign Economic Links, Economy and Law, before studying linguistic interpreting at St. Petersburg State University. Tour guiding first started off as a hobby, but once I took a training course for tour guides, I have been working as a licensed guide in the city ever since.
I like giving tours despite the weather in our city and I enjoy sharing my knowledge with our guests - I will gladly answer any questions you put to me! I enjoy guiding as it gives me the chance to communicate with many interesting people as well as enrich my knowledge of history and the arts. I also love travelling to other countries, but can never stop telling people how beautiful my native city is. So come to St. Petersburg! I will be thrilled to meet you and show you around this unforgettable city!
Although I have lived in this fascinating city for most of my life and know St. Petersburg in great detail, I still cannot stop discovering it. I live and breathe this city, a city rich in history and genuine beauty. I am a very energetic, patient and creative person and I truly enjoy showing people around my native city. I love sharing my versatile knowledge and life experiences with St. Petersburg guests and making their experience personal and unforgettable.
I was born in Leningrad (St. Petersburg). For more than twenty years I have been working as a tour guide in St. Petersburg. I graduated from St. Petersburg State University where I studied English language and literature, and while I was a student there I finished tour guide courses.
After university I worked as a teacher of financial English at the University of Economics and Finances for ten years. Now I teach tour guides in professional training courses (with the Intourist Company) and I really enjoy it. I am a member of the special State Qualification Committee which is responsible for the professional level of St Petersburg guides.
I love St. Petersburg with its history and architecture. I travel a lot all over Russia (Far East, Siberia, Urals) because of my own personal interest in visiting historical places of interest, and learning on the spot. I am happy to share my knowledge of the country and my love for St. Petersburg with the guests of our country. My work as a tour guide gives me the opportunity to meet many interesting people from different places of the world. Art and culture truly connect people! I am happy to live and work in such a great city like St. Petersburg.
Hi, my name is Eugenia! I'm young, dynamic and patient, and I graduated from The University of Art and Culture, finishing guide certification courses while there. For ten years now, I have been studying different periods of both Russian and World History. I find it interesting to share my knowledge with other people. I am a wealth of information and know many interesting facts about my beloved city and I would love to share my passion and knowledge with you.
There is always something new to discover in this city - it's huge and interesting and the clashing architecture tells its own story. The foundation of St. Petersburg was a turning point in Russian history, and it deserves to be seen!
I am more than happy to welcome you to St. Petersburg, the capital of the Russian Empire. My name is Ekaterina Shatalova and I graduated from Moscow State Pedagogical University. I am an experienced guide, and have been working between Moscow and St. Petersburg for five years.
I was born in Moscow in 1983, but nowdays I live in St. Petesburg where I met my love.
Russian and foreign people alike consider our city a unique source of inspiration. St. Petersburg, which finds itself on the UNESCO World Heritage list, is undoubtedly the cultural capital of Russia.
I am pleased to tell you that in our city there are more than three hundred palaces, two hundred twenty one museums, over two thousand libraries and more than eighty different theatres. You will see the streets and embankments where Pushkin and Dostoevsky used to stroll. In addition to this, you will have an opportunity to feel the unique atmosphere and experience the culture of 18th and 19th centuries. St. Petersburg is the city where our Emperors and Empresses lived, died and created the history not only of our country, but the world over.
Undoubtedly, everybody will find something special in my city to remember forever.
I am proud to be a graduate of the St.Petersburg University, one of the best educational establishments in Russia. I have been working as a tour guide for twenty years. Over the years I have met many people, and visited many countries, which all make my love for my city even stronger. I will be happy to share it with you when you come to St. Petersburg.
It is a pleasure to guide people around one of the most mysterious and beautiful places in the world - the city of Pushkin and Dostoevsky, Chaikovsky and Rimsky-Korsakov as well as Mendeleev and Pavlov.
With its rivers, canals, islands, palaces of the royalty and nobles, the Hermitage collections, and the Russian ballet – St.Petersburg's poetic and romantic attractions appeal to everyone.
You will be truly moved by the stories about Peter the Great and the last Romanovs, the Bolshevik Revolution and Soviets, the horrors of the siege of Leningrad and of tales of daily life today in St. Petersburg.
My name is Maria, or Masha – the most traditional Russian name.
I’m 32 years old, but nobody believes me! I think it’s my job that keeps me so young - guiding is a very creative and dynamic activity. It’s my true vocation. Every day I enjoy walking through beautiful gardens, visiting priceless museums and talking to people from all over the world… and I also have to find quick solutions to unexpected situations that may arise, which is a kind of training too, it helps to keep my mind open and alive.
Besides giving tours of St. Petersburg, I’m a teacher of French and English. I started working at St. Petersburg State University once I graduated from Philological Faculty, but now I’m mostly dealing with children and teenagers, which I love. I hope my little son will easily learn languages with my help!
Come to St Petersburg, and we’ll surely become friends!
Je m’appelle Maria ou Macha – le prénom russe le plus courant.
J’ai 32 ans, mais personne ne me croit ! Je pense que c’est mon métier qui me conserve si jeune, parce qu’être guide est une activité très crétrice et dynamique. C’est ma vocation. Tous les jours j’ai le plaisir de me balader dans de jolis jardins, visiter des musées de renommée mondiale et de rencontrer des gens du monde entier... Et je dois aussi trouver des solutions pour des situations inattendues qui peuvent survenir ce qui est aussi une sorte d’entraînement pour mon cerveau.
En dehors du tourisme, je suis professeur de français et d’anglais. J’ai d’abord travaillé à l’Université d’Etat de Saint Pétersbourg parce que je l’avais terminée, mais maintenant j’enseigne principalement des enfants et des adolescents. Je les adore ! J’espère que mon petit va aussi apprendre facilement les langues étrangères avec mon aide.
Venez à Saint Pétersbourg, et nous deviendrons certainement des amis !
I was born in St. Petersburg as well as at least seven generations of my family. That's why all the historical events you read about in a textbook are for me part of my family history - whether it is the Siege of Leningrad, the Great Purge, the Russian Revolution, the Decembrist uprising or even the Napoleonic wars.
I'm really excited to share my knowledge and passion for Russian history and culture, and that is why I began working as a tour guide five years ago. I also work as a journalist, because life in our country is changing so quickly. I enjoy being the first to learn about upcoming changes and the first to communicate them to others. As a tour guide I see my mission in making your St. Petersburg experience unique and designed just for you and according to your tastes and interests. There is always room for improvisation in my job, and that's what allows me to turn every excursion into breathtaking adventure I will be happy to guide you through!
I’m so lucky to be born and raised in St. Petersburg. I haved lived here all my life with my mother and twin brother. I actually have a degree in chemistry but have been working as a tour guide since 2006. It’s such a pleasure to have a job which allows me to meet new people, learn something new about different nationalities and enjoy the art and architecture of this fascinating city again and again.
During the off-season I do some tutoring and make clothes. Sewing is another passion of my life. I’m very fond of it because I can design all kinds of clothes according to my taste; I get to choose the color and style. What I come up with always seems to impress my friends and colleagues, thankfully.
Are you a Saint Petersburg guide? Yes, I am.
I am the one honored to share with you the beauty of Saint Petersburg. I am that one who will walk with you through its history. I am that who is in love with Peter the Great`s city.
I am also a historian and English translator and in 2005 received university degrees in both Art History and in English. I started my way as an associate in the Hermitage, and from there moved on to the City Sculpture Museum. But when I started as a tour guide I found my true passion.
My love is the Hermitage. During my studies, I was practically living there. It became my second home. I am in love as well with Peterhof. It is a wonderful fairytale of fountains and palaces.
I am a positive and open hearted person who loves life and my city. I am married and have two little daughters. In my free time I am drawing, listening to classical music, going to the theater or doing different sports. But my favorite is reading. From books I take the most interesting stories to make an unforgettable tour for you. And the best reward is to see your bright eyes and shining smiles.
Being a person who admired traveling from an early age, I was lucky enough to have been able to study English in the USA when I was just a child. Having a Russian heritage, I was constantly asked many questions about my native country. Today, not much has changed except for the fact that I live in an extraordinary city full of precious history. I took the responsibility of being a guide. This is the one and only job that gives the pleasure of connecting cultures through the knowledge of art and history. Experiencing Saint Petersburg together will be an unforgettable ride!
Welcome to Saint Petersburg, one of the most historical, majestic and romantic cities in the world.
I was fortunate to be born and raised here, as were my parents and grandparents. I have a degree in linguistics from one of the oldest Universities of Saint Petersburg – Herzen Pedagogical University. Having many friends from other countries, I was frequently showing the sights of the city to them and their friends and families, which inspired me to become a professional tour guide.
I will show you my native city from different perspectives: I will tell you the history of the foundation of Saint Petersburg, its architecture, about the Romanov family, who lived and ruled here, about outstanding personalities, who worked here in different times, about the events of the revolution of 1917. The times of the Second World War I know not solely from the books, but also from the stories of my grandmothers and grandfathers, who survived these tragic times. I will walk you through one of the most interesting periods of the history of my country – communism, “perestroika” and collapse of the Soviet Union. You will get an insight into the everyday life of contemporary citizens of Saint Petersburg and even learn some Russian words.
It’s a pleasure for me to meet people from all over the world and share my passion and love to the history and culture of my city and I am looking forward to being you guide!
I was born and grew up in a beautiful city on the Neva River, the capital of the Russian Empire. When I was a child I enjoyed walking through the outstanding collection of the State Hermitage museum and spent a lot of time among adorable fountains of the beautiful Lower Park of Peterhof. I started to study English in a Gymnasium and was practicing in London during the school summer holidays. In high school we started a course on Tourism and as a result I became acquainted with the guide profession. After high school I studied in the State University, under the Scandinavian faculty. After graduation the university I had an internship in Stockholm, Sweden. While I was at university I took a special tour guide course to develop my skill and knowledge base. Being a guide is a great honor for me. It's a great pleasure to show tourists spectacular and amazing places of our city. I always tell them enthusiastically about mysteries and secrets of Saint-Petersburg and about the outstanding heroism of inhabitants of our city during the Second World War. One of the numerous advantages of my job is a meeting and communicating with new people. I love traveling and discovering new places. I'm really happy to carry out a job which is simultaneously my calling in life.
Saint-Petersburg is often called an open air museum where every house, every street, bridges and canals is a priceless exhibit. It has so much to offer you even if it's not your first visit.
Being a professional tourist, during my excursions I always try to put myself in the "tourist's shoes" and to make the stay of our guests interesting, enjoyable and relaxed.
This city has a soul of it's own and with me you'll discover Saint-Petersburg with all its history, traditions, architecture and rich cultural heritage.
Welcome to Saint-Petersburg and find out what you love it for!
I have been working as a tour-guide since 2000 and really enjoy this profession. It is not only the job but the mode of life. I am always excited to meet new people, to know about them and their country and at the same time share information about the beautiful and magnificent Saint-Petersburg.
This is my native city. I have two higher degrees, I graduated from State Pedagogical University and got the profession of teacher of literature and English language and I have graduated from Saint-Petersburg State University and worked as a journalist. I also worked as a trainer for other tour-guides. I enjoy working with tourists and showing them our gorgeous "museum-like-city”: every building, church, bridge, embankment has it's own history. I love to tell the visitors different stories and legends, to talk about daily life of Russian people. I like to travel myself and I understand that most important message to leave with is: "We would like to come back to Saint-Petersburg again." I always try do my best for that and even more.
I was born in the south of Russia and soon my family moved to Saint Petersburg. I graduated from the Saint Petersburg State University named after Alexander Pushkin (prominent Russian writer).
The University was situated in the Tsar's Village, the place where Russian Tsars used to stay in summer time. Maybe this fact inspired me to become a guide. I wanted to know more about the historical places in Saint Petersburg and to share this knowledge with people who come here to see the striking beauty of the palaces and churches.
I have been working as a tour guide since 2008. With every tour, I try to show to my guests as many interesting places as possible in the time we have in our city.I like to pass on what it’s like to be a local in our fantastic city, I don’t just talk about historical facts, I like to make tours really exciting and engaging!
Come and let us make your vacation here unforgettable!
