All these tourists had unforgettable travel experience because of our guides from St. Petersburg. Let them make your dream vacation a reality.
My wife and I are going to spend a week – perhaps a bit more – in St. Petersburg in July. We will arrive on July 11 or 12 (possibly a day or two later). We will arrive from Helsinki, probably by ferry. We will leave either by ferry to return to Helsinki or by air to our home in France.
While we live in France, we are Americans.
We want to see the sites of St Petersburg itself, but also several of the major sites outside of the city including the Peterhof, Tsarskoie Selo and possibly Novgorod (we are open to suggestions on these and other places to see).
We are interested in having a guide for 3-5 days during our trip, particularly to the sites outside of the city. We would be interested in receiving a proposition from you for the following:
- Meeting us at our point of arrival and taking us to where we will be staying. Returning us to either the point where the ferry to Helsinki departs or to the airport.
- Reserving a place to stay – we often like independent apartments close to a city center, but a hotel is also possible. We want a place to stay where we can easily walk to Nevski Prospect, to the Bolshoi Neva, to the Hermitage, etc. Also it would be useful to be close to public transportation. Your suggestions, along with some idea of prices would be useful.
For guiding, we would like an estimation of the cost per day in the city and to specific sites outside of the city.
Finally we are serious fans of opera and classical music generally. We would be interested in what concerts and operas might be available in mid-July.
I understand that this request is not very specific, but we are interested in your ideas so please feel free to make suggestions.
If this is not of interest to you or if you are already busy in July, can you suggest another guide who might be able to help us?
Tom: My wife, Kim, and I will be coming to St. Petersburg for a too brief visit, in September, 2011, and we are looking for a wonderful guide.
We will be arriving at Pulkovo-2, on Sunday, 11 September, at 11:50, and will be departing on Tuesday, 13, September, at 16:20. We already have hotel accommodations, but we would appreciate airport transfers.
Some of the things we would most like to see, and gain insight on, are the Hermitage and its store rooms, and Catherine Palace. We also love ballet, and would relish a chance to see a performance, if there is one while we are there.
Kim and I also like to explore on our own -- it's romantic to get lost, or just wander as a couple. My first thought is we would explore the Metro, the fountains at Peterhof and the Church of the Savior of the Spilt Blood that way, but if you think we would be better served seeing some or all of that with you, too, we are not rigid.
Ideally, we would love to begin our tour as soon as we arrive on Sunday, before even going to the hotel. We know we will be tired (we will have just travelled for 17 hours) but with our limited amount of time, that seems to make the most sense. We'd also like to tour on Tuesday, before heading to the airport. We would like to leave at least half of Monday free to play on our own.
Any restaurant suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated, too. (Blinis for lunch sound wonderful. Other than that, all we've heard about is Khinkalnaya-Khachapurnaya and Molokhovets' Dream.)
Eugenia, we are embarrassingly ignorant about "Piter", as you said you call it, and even if we have a short period of time with you, we are looking forward to a fun, insightful time in your remarkable city. I look forward to your reply, and learning about your prices.

George: My wife and I and our 23 year old son are interested in a private tour of St. Petersburg. We will be arriving in St. Petersburg on Sunday, August 29 until Monday, August 30. We would like to arrange for a guide a private car and a driver. We have never been to St. Petersburg before. We are interested in experiencing the city, riding the subway, seeing local markets, artists, galleries and crafts. We really enjoy cities and city life. While we want to see the highlights such as the Hermitage and Peterhof Palace and gardens, we also enjoy walking in cities and sitting in cafes. The three of us are very interested in the social, political, historical perspective. We would love to walk along the canals and enjoy the beautiful architecture and ambiance. We were told that the hydrofoil from Peterhof Palace will save us a lot of time in traffic. We also want to arrange it so that we do not have to spend time waiting in line to enter the Hermitage or the palaces. Finally, we would like to enjoy a nice lunch or dinner at a good restaurant. A friend of ours suggested "Kavkaz" (Saint-Petersburg, Stakhanovtsev, 5, tel. 4444-309)for good Georgian food. Can you please tell me whether you are available on those dates and give me an idea of what the costs for this would be? Our ship docks overnight and we will have about two days to tour.
I look forward to hearing from you.
