My name is Alisa. I am a tour guide in St Petersburg, Russia, and owner of Petersburgtrip private tours. We offer private tours and visa-free shore excursions that combine must-see places & hidden gems that big group tours miss, delicious Russian food and bits of local experience.
We have more than 200 5-star reviews on Tripadvisor
All our tours are private & can be customized for your needs for free.
No way to skip the Hermitage, Peterhof or the Catherine palace. But everyone else goes there. Why not add something special? Peek inside a sectret courtyard in the city center to find Colosseum or make a wish where locals do? Ride the metro like Russian to see how deep it is and find a bust of Lenin or glass columns? There are lots of cool places.
As a private party, we are faster and more flexible than big groups & see more. Tickets to the main museums are booked in advance – no waiting in lines. As a private party, we don’t need to wait for other 30 people from a toilet or a shop. As a result – we spend most of the time sightseeing.
Russian pies, borsht soup, beef stroganoff, pancakes create a very good memory of Russia even if you don’t like vodka. If you prefer other cuisine or don’t need a break while sightseeing – just let us know.
Quite often you can just pay full amount upon arrival and be sure that nobody will run away with your money in a foreign country.
Just let us know your ideas. If it’s your first time to Russia & you don’t know what to do, let us know and we will suggest an itinerary.
Warm wishes from St Petersburg,
Individual entrepreneur Shavykina Alisa Vladimirovna
