Why choose a guide from Personal Tours

We never press our guests to order themed tours.

Our guides try to  learn out guests’ preferences, desires, and interests well in advance before they start an exciting tour around St. Petersburg.

Our guides thoroughly plan the tour route and contents.

Sometimes our guests wonder why we ask them where they come from? and what they do for a living. It is not idle curiosity.

Only our professional and experienced personal guides can offer you something really interesting and worthwhile based on minimum information.

Thus, medical specialists might want to see the building of the famous Military Medical Academy of St. Petersburg and learn about its history. People who serve(d) in the navy will certainly enjoy a journey to Kronstadt or hearing the detailed story of the Admiralty and the history of the Russian fleet, etc.
