Artem did a great job leading us through the imperial history of Saint Petersburg. He was very knowledgeable about the various architects and included historical anecdotes that made the walk entertaining and informative. Recommend!

The tour with Artem was great. As soon as I booked, I received a message from him with very clear instructions about the meeting point and how to find him. Although the weather was not helping, he was enthusiastic the whole time explaining so many details about the city. He offered himself to be contacted during the rest of my stay in St. Petersburg which I think is so helpful. I would definitely recommend everyone to choose his tour.

Most of the free tours we tried in and around St Petersburg cancelled on us at the last minute. Artem was the only reliable guide. The tour was wonderful. It was very interesting and full of fun facts. Artem went out of his way to help us navigate the city and he gave us snacks! Reccommend Artem over any other free tour in St Petersburg. Thanks for a great afternoon Artem!

Artem is a amazing guide and has good knowledge about the city and it’s history, he’s really passionate about what he does. I had a good time walking with him, it’s just that it got a bit too long, may be cause it was raining and we got into a cafe for sometime. I will recommend a tour with Artem whilst you are in Saint Petersburg.

Response from Artem:

Thank you very much Saket! It was also a very big pleasure for me to organise a tour for you! Yes, unfortunately it was raining, which is quite usual for Saint - Petersburg, but I hope that when you come next time, the weather will be better. But anyway I am really glad that you liked my tour. The best award for me is just to see peoples smiles after my tour, that means that my work is not in vain!)
