About the tour on

Saint Petersburg is a Narcissus city that admires its own reflection in the mirror of its countless rivers and canals. Almost every bit of its space is pierced by a waterflow that doubles its splendor. One can see much more in the reflection than in direct gaze — and that's why our experimental walk will be about exploring the space of Saint Petersburg, its images, contrasts, parallels and beauty. Our tools in this experiment are:
— mirrors of different shapes and sizes that will help us to find interesting reflections, contrasts and similarities;
— cameras that will capture our findings;
— and the city itself that we'll be able to break down and reassemble as puzzle.
A detailed and coherent narrative about the structure, history and contemporary life of different districts of Saint Petersburg will also be provided. This experimental guided tour will be interesting both to photographers (beginners as well as professionals) and curious tourists.

Amazing tour! We had a rough start to the day and almost canceled. We are so happy that we didn't. Arsene is a wonderful guide! He was very informative and accommodating. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in architectural history, urban decay or if you just want to get out of the tourist hot spots.

Arsene is an exceptionally well qualified, knowledgeable, interesting, friendly, professional guide that we recommend warmly. His wide range of deep, precise knowledge, attentive ear to all questions, personal involvement and evident love of his city made his tour a true pleasure for us both. Erling and Linn, Norway.

It was really good experiment with an expert guide. The weather was really icy, but it's normal in January. It gave an additional atmosphere to this amazing square and this old-time factory. The guide gave a lot of detail and information of the history of the architecture and the factory. It was a real pleasure! And it's a good opportunity to take so nice pictures.

Arsene provided our family (2 adults + 3 teens) with a remarkable afternoon. All of us enjoyed his tour very much, and we highly recommend it for tourists and Spb residents. Thanks, Arsene!
