Individual walking tour in the city center

I have worked in the tourism industry, hospitality and event management for more than 6 years. During this time, I have received all the necessary documents for carrying out my activities, wrote several author’s tours, worked with both Russian and foreign groups of different numbers and ages, participated in organizing and “technical support” of culture programs. In addition to the tours I already announced I can happily think up and conduct for you almost any tour on the topic that interests you. I always glad to discuss all your wishes and suggestions.

Понять характер настоящего Петербурга можно только пройдя его вдоль и поперек. Это я и предлагаю вам сделать вместе со мной на экскурсии по историческому центру города. Экскурсия будет проходить в удобном формате знакомства с городом в своем режиме за живым общением, со всеми необходимыми остановками для фотографирования, с посиделками за кофе и даже шопингом. Во время нашей прогулки я расскажу вам всю интересующую информацию об истории и жизни города и, конечно, отвечу на все ваши вопросы.

Walking tour along the embankments, squares and streets of the center of St. Petersburg with an experienced guide and a local resident (2 in 1))).
Individual walking tour is:
— a convenient format for exploring the city in your own style with all the necessary stops for photographing, coffee, shopping.
— real-life communication with questions, jokes, sharing life experience.
— ability to receive all the information of interest about the history, culture and life of the city from a local resident.

During the tour you will learn: for what impudence Emperor Alexander 2 disliked the architect Montferrand, where they traded peasants, why the Nazis planned to celebrate the capture of Leningrad in the banquet room of the Astoria Hotel, the History of the Faberge Easter Egg, why the inhabitants of the 19th century were afraid to walk along Palace Square, in what drugstore does Kutuzov send to Barclay de Tolly, the history of the invention of the world-famous beef stroganoff, the address of the "mustachioed princess", why the name Hermitage is not suitable for the largest museum in the country, about the church-pool, which qui-gym and church-potato warehouse, and more.

We were with Lilia for 2 days and had a fabulous time. We visited Peterhof one day and Tsarsko Selo the second day. Lilia was very knowledgeable, patient and fun. She is an excellent guide to have for both of these destinations and without a doubt for any Tour she provides. When (and not if) we return to St Petersburg we will definitely have Lilia show us much more of this great city. FYI a whole day for Peterhof and another full day for Tsarsko Selo is needed. To be able to see these palaces properly you do need to spend the whole day. We took the hydrofoil to Peterhof which is the best and easiest way to get to and from the palace. We were docked at the "English Embankment" on Azamara Journey. One interesting point is right beside the our ship is where the Aurora fired the shot to start the Revolution. Finally we recommend Lilia very highly and if you want a great Tour then choose her. Regards, Catherine and Peter
