Moscow or St. Petersburg?
If you’ve ever found yourself a foreigner in Russia, chances are you’ve been asked this question. You may even attempt to answer it, but you'll not understand anything about this old two-capitals-conflict till you visit them both with the locals who'll provide valuable justification for a city-dweller’s pride..
So it's time to take the train and spend a weekend in The North Capital with local guides from Sputnik!
We'll make you feel the character of St.Petersburg on our "Small surprises around St.Petersburg" tour. After you'll have ability to taste most delicious crumpets in the world which are made by soviet technology, to drink rare coniac with champaign drink on our "Historical restaurants and bars" tour.
Saint Petersburg is famous for its raised bridges, so we'll show it on our boat tour.
Next day we'll help you to choose some original presents on Flea Market. Not only will you be able to find some old and unusual things there, but also see the history of Russia and understand the country better. Flea market is like an open air interactive musuem.
And we'll finish our weekend trip with an incredible walk on the roofs in the historical center of St. Petersburg.

Reviews of other tours by Olga
We are very grateful for your hospitality during our visit to Moscow. We all enjoyed seeing the beautiful and interesting sights there, especially those gorgeous Museum and perfect local tours.
Thank you very much for sharing the unique culture and history of Russia with us. The food was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. We feel very fortunate to have tasted those traditional Russian delicacies, and so do the perfect vodka we have ever tried.
I don't know where to start ...
We met on a stormy winter day charming girl dressed a pink coat. She took us on a fascinating tour of galleries and walls of graffiti,designers studio's and introduced us art scene of this amazing city.The area was once a wine factory and have a lot of fascinating spots and cozy restaurants.The guide was very professional and smart. We had a good time walking the streets of Moscow and revealing secret spots that you'll never get there alone.
After all she left us a lot of recommendation for our next days, including the most trandy restaurants and interesting places to visit.
Highly recommended tour for those who interested to see real Moscow.
It was a great experience I would recommend it to everyone!over 2 years ago
Olga was great and this was an awesome experience. She was friendly and interesting to talk to, and walked us through the different dishes step by step. She also did the hard prep work for some of it before we got there so we had plenty of time to finish up and sit down and enjoy the meal. The recipes and some additional information we talked about were emailed to us soon after our cooking class. Olga also helped me buy tea at a nearby shop for someone who requested it. We had a great time and hope to find ourselves in Moscow again to do another tour with Olga.over 2 years ago
My mother and I enjoyed the Russian cooking experience with Olga in December 2014. She is welcoming, accommodating and SO much fun. I enjoyed learning about Russian food and culture from a native, and even my 60-year-old mother felt at home with Olga. It felt like having dinner with an old friend. I would recommend her tours to anyone in Moscow!over 3 years ago
Blini Reizen is a Dutch touroperator who offers trips to the former Soviet-Union. We always advise our clients to book excursions with a local guide: to view the country and it's people with different eyes and to get information they otherwise wouldn't get to know (easy). Two of our travellers (2 sisters, who had a special reason to visit Moscow), found Olga’s tours at this website and decided to book 4 of them through our agency. They were happy with both the tours and the guide, I quote: "the first two days we had Olga as a guide. Punctually she picked us up at our hotel. A funny, friendly and flexible girl with humor, who speaks English very well and knows a lot to tell about history, art and tourist locations. She also told us a number of anecdotes. She showed us very nice places and restaurants that we would never have found without her ".
Af for Blini Reizen: we found Olga very pleasant to work with: she is accurate, flexible, cooperative, interested and always tried to find the best solutions for the clients. We would surely recommend this tour!
