About us

Let us introduce ourselves


Alina Fedorova

Passionate and curious 24-years-old perfectionist with Bachelor degree in English, who is obsessed with travelling both within the borders of homeland and abroad. Born and live in Saint Petersburg and consider the hometown the greatest in Russia.

Since high school I have had an interest of conundrums of Russian and particularly Saint Petersburg history. So current days I turn this interest into my profession and I am eager to share my knowledge with you.

Anastasia Mikhailova

Enthusiastic and easygoing historian with Bachelor degree in Russian history (currently getting MD in the field) and personal guide experience in the museums of Saint Petersburg.

Since childhood I have been obsessed with the city I live in, and step by step this hobby of mine turned into my trade. Everyone has their own vision of Saint Petersburg, Piter, Leningrad (as you wish), but I will help you to create the unique story of this city in your mind.

OUR SERVICES

Know more about what we do


Concept

  • Walking tours

    We arrange mostly walking (dynamic!) tours in Saint Petersburg (but also it's possible to rent a car for a tour), which is basically the best city of Russia :) We take our tourists through the most famous places of the city, as well as off the beaten track. Anyways, get your feet prepared!

  • Mix the tours

    We have three basic routes, which cover three central parts of the city (as they say in Europe, the Old Town). Tourists are free to decide, how to combine them - either all three in one day or take one at a time. Of course, if you take 3 tours in one day, we will provide you with a good discount. ;)

  • Small groups

    We arrange tours only with small groups (up to 6 people) and individual tourists.

  • Meaningful facts

    We know that each and every historical fact or date presents an event. Be sure that we won't provide you with bare facts. We are those people who will show you not only must-see places, but also attractions, which only locals (not all) are familiar with. We follow our slogan NO HUMDRUM OR COMMONPLACE.

  • Time

    We arrange tours FROM MAY TO SEPTEMBER.

3 basic routes

  • City centre

    The tour takes up to 4.5 hours, and consists of visiting the most picturesque and famous attractions of Saint Petersburg, such as Nevsky Prospect, Isaac Cathedral, Saviour on the blood, the Winter Palace (The Hermitage) and many others that made our city greatest. Find out more...

  • Petrogradskaya side

    Here we'll show you the place where the city was born - the mind-blowing fortress which is located on the island; one of the first buildings of Saint Petersburg, where the city founder lived; and even a real Oriental Jami! Find out more...

  • Vasilievsky Island

    And finally (or primarily... it depends on you) we will lead you through the romantic streets of Vasilievsky Island. We will show you the place that should have become the Northern Venice, and everything that left from those plans. You will see a square that reminds a ship and Sphinxes at 3500 years old. Find out more...

  • Other destinations

    It's also possible to arrange tours to other places of your choice - Peterhof, Tsarskoe Selo, Pavlovsk, Gatchina, Vyborg and many others. Find out more...
