I am Yelena, a licensed guide, in love with my job. I graduated from the training courses for guides and guide-interpreters. I came into this profession with a huge amount of knowledge and great life experience. And here's the paradox: I liked it! I knew perfectly well that I could not live without traveling. I love travelling very much and I want to share the places with my travelers.I offer tours and author's excursions.

The guide is lovely but she has a strong accent. She got some cool facts about the city but I expected more engaging with the group and recommendations for the places to visit.

Very interesting. I enjoyed the history and the specific links to my home history. Some very high quality research has certainly been done by our guide. Very great introduction to the city. Highly recommended!! The personal stories were also interesting!!
