Note: I require a day or at least a night's notice to conduct tour so our tour is smooth and I'm right on time. Last minute bookings are difficult for me to manage since I have to walk a lot and take a metro to reach the meeting point, though I can still be available so it's better to send me a message as soon as you book. I am currently a masters student and I work part time as an English teacher and tour guide. As I was related to the educational sector therefore, during these 3 months of semester break my only source of income is through being a tour guide. I am friendly person who is keen about history and architecture and loves to travel. Out of curiosity I've discovered interesting historical facts about Saint Petersburg; that's where I live. I am a good narrator and story teller and I am sure you'll enjoy my company. Please don't forget to leave me reviews, it enhances my chances of future guests. I'd love to involve fellow travelers in an immersive experience. We'd not only sight-see but I'll additionally guide you about events, activities, restaurants, bars, clubs, and more. I like to meet people from different countries and learn about different cultures. One of the reasons I'm here is for the sake of cultural exchange. I'm very social and you'll feel at ease with me. My tour is offered in English though I'll provide Russian translation service if required such in purchasing some tickets or souvenirs.
