This walk through the courtyards of St. Petersburg will be of interest to both adults and children.

Best experience! Don't try to walk all St. Peter by yourself if you are here for just a couple of days, it can be exhausting... But with Artem's excellent guidance and his bike tour, you are all set for future explorations. He is smart, and will tell you a lot of "real" fun stories about this city!

Despite cold winter temperatures the walk with Artem was an exciting pleasure to dive into history of old St. Petersburg. For me ideal introduction to the city center and the many sights. Artem knows a lot to tell and the walk just flies...definitely recommendable!
