Description Prices What’s included Highlights Meeting point

Enjoy the beautiful ensemble of three major city squares, which are located back to back to each other, it is the only "block of squares" in the world.

You will not only see every major official building, such as the Hermitage, Admiralty and St. Isaac cathedral, but also will be able to hear out the stories of their construction, including their earlier versions. By "peeling off" different layers of each historical building you see how they were gradually constructed to play their unique part in perfect harmony of a complete ensemble. Find out who built this spectacular ensemble, for whom it was built and under what circumstances, only then you'd be able not only look at it, but really see it.

And if that's not enough and weather permitting, take a boat ride along the channels to see it all from the vantage point of water level or climb up to the colonnade of the third biggest cathedral in Europe, St. Isaac's, to have a bird's eye view.
(The price of the tour includes my time as a guide only. Extra expense such as entry tickets boat ride etc. are not included into the price, you have to pay your own way and admittance fee for me if you want me to accompany you inside)

Bored with run of the mill, standard tours, where guides just repeat the same old memorized text? You are more than welcome to try my lecture tours in a unique style of infotainment (mixing history and charismatic storytelling) delivered through my own personality and with my own flair. Fully licensed and accredited experienced guide in St. Petersburg, Russia, I can do major Museums such as Hermitage, Russian museum, Faberge, Peter and Paul fortress, suburbs such as Pushkin, Pavlovsk and Peterhoff, Cathedrals of St.Isaak, SS Peter and Paul, Spilled Blood, our Lady of Kasan etc. Ohter venues could be persued such as political history museum, siege of Leningrad museum depending on your interests, as well as various destinations such as Oranienbaum and Kronstadt half day trips and three day trip to Kizgi island are available on request.
St. Petersburg is full of surprises, and without doubt, is best experienced on foot. You've probably already heard, that it is often called an open air museum. Each building is an exhibit with its unique history surrounded by mystery, intrigue and even murder. There is no better way to see it than to take a guided walking tour around the historical center of the city and learn the history of Peter's creation. You will not only see beautiful ensembles and royal palaces but would be able to find out about its former creators and owners. Was it a curse or blessing for its inhabitants? You'll learn this and much more. I usually speak about socio-economic progress of the country, during corresponding period of time in conjunction with the development of different architecture's and art's styles. Along this route we talk about the history of each building and their former famous owners so you'll get a crush course of Russian history as well. I can be academic, yet not overloading you with the details, I can be entertaining, yet informative at the same time. So if you are "Intellectually curious" and btw it is not a strict term, the walking tours are just up your alley. They are extremely small (six people maximum), personal, and informative the real nitty-gritty of the city. Usually the fine details often overlooked for the more popular highlights. Of course, the highlights are available for anyone who asks. My area of expertise is in architecture and European art history. But where I really exceed, it is Russian history. So if you are not intimidated to be led by PhD-wielding smarty-pants type, get in contact with me for customizing your personal tailored tour. My English is fluent plus it would not grate on your ears and sound threatening or defensive, because unlike those other guides, I learnt the language directly from the original sources, so I can speak it with right tonality a modulation.
