Hello, we are Maria and Polina! It seems now we have been in this business forever. We have been working as professional guides in Saint-Petersburg for more than 15 years. Each of us being an excellent private guide worked for different companies in our beautiful city. We run tours of different kinds and this way got precious experience. Having decided we are strong enough to work on our own we arranged TourPetersburg Company. Thus, we have been functioning for more than 13 years as an official company at the touristic market of St. Petersburg.
Our aim is not only arranging tours properly or just booking tickets in museums. We are happy to break people’s stereotypes about Russia and Russians. We show the country and the city we live in with love. We would like you to see St Petersburg the way we see it and to fall in love with it forever.
We work very hard. As a result we are happy to say that we receive more and more enquiries every year. We try to pay as much attention as possible to every detail in our work: our tour guides are highly professional and easy-going, our drivers are helpful, polite and attentive, our prices are the lowest among competitors.
We are proud to inform you that we do not have negative comments. Every businessman tells his clients about the personal approach in his work. This is what we try not to proclaim but to practice. Of course, we have standard sample tours to make the process of choosing what is important to see here or not easier for our guests. Then the process of improving the tour begins. We are attentive and flexible to tourists’ ideas and suggestions. We do not want everyone to have one and the same tour. Keeping in mind their wishes, desires and special needs we would like them to enrich the standard sample tour with something unusual that will help our guests to know Russia and Russian people better, to pay attention not only to interesting and famous museums, spacious parks and magnificent palaces of Saint-Petersburg but also to see our everyday life, sitting quietly in a café watching ordinary Russian people around, for example.
Our goal is to change foreign guests’ perception of Russia and people who live here. That is why working with tourists mostly coming to Russia for the first time we still would like to give them the possibility to choose what they would like to see in St Petersburg. There are several options. Of course, you may have a must-see tour, this is what most visitors do. Also there is always an opportunity to mix it with something not usual as, for example, a visit of Russian banya. This way the tour becomes a very special experience, nobody will have anything of this kind. We ask and provoke our guests to be brave and extraordinary. They are very grateful for it later!
In the end of the tour our guests say their ideas about Russia were totally different and they did not expect to find here so many well-educated, English-speaking, positive, enthusiastic young people. Most of the tourists are sure Russia is going to be unusual, strange and unpredictable. It is a pleasant surprise for them to realize we are very hospitable, highly professional and willing to communicate and to share.
