Hi! I am Anna Gaplichnaya, local English-speaking tour guide in St Petersburg Russia. I’ve been working as a guide-interpreter for years and confirm my professionalism, having necessary licenses for tours in the main museums of St Petersburg and its suburbs, as well as accreditation at the City Tourist Information Bureau. This website is designed to make your stay in St Petersburg more comfortable, well planned and organized. Here you can find useful travel information, visa-related issues; read about popular sightseeing, restaurants, hotels, events; learn more about the city, its history and, of course, book a personal tour. Private tour is a great opportunity to plan your route according to own interests and needs, get help in choosing attractions to see and visit, adjust a tour at any time, ask questions, communicate with a friendly and knowledgeable local, and, of course, make awesome photos. There are several tours to book: walking city center tours, metro and boat trips, visa free shore excursions, one and two day tours with visiting the most popular city sights and suburbs.
What tourists say
about my tours (5/5 star rating)
We spent two fantastic days in St. Petersburg and had the great pleasure to have Anna as our private guide. She planned our visits to all fantastic places and arranged all tickets in advance. Somehow she always got us among the first in line. Anna has a great knowledge about history, buildings and all worth knowing about the city and the life in Russia. We can really recommend Anna if you want to explore St. Petersburg. Best regards
Fantastic tour Anna, we cant wait to come again! Looks like we might be doing 2 trips to russia next year. So excited
It was our pleasure and good fortune to spend time with you in your favorite city. We enjoyed all our conversations with you: historical, architectural, cultural, political and spiritual. Every year on the feast day of Epiphany I will be thinking of you and your sacramental rite of baptism in the Neva River! In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen. We were so blessed to have you to guide us in St. Petersburg! I hope you and I can keep in touch a little
I am a fan of architecture, and Saint Petersburg is so full of different sites, all beautiful and exciting. Anya, without your explanations and stories I won’t be able to know so much about the city, so thank you!
Dear Anya, It was very pleasent to work with you for trips we recently done to Saint Petersburg. We are not getting proper response from guides for our trips but later we found you. We appreciate your work with professionality and accurate explanation of all places. I personally like to recommend you to other and for sure all future trips for our group, you are the only one we would like to walk at nevskiy. Thanks for making our trip memorable 🙂 Best of luck!! Regards Gorussia Holidays team
I highly recommend this tour. Anna showed me many metro stations and gave me insights into the significance of them, how they are decorated and why that is significant. She also took me to a couple of places that I wouldn't have been to if I had just stayed within the standard area of where you would go as a tourist of St Petersburg. A lovely afternoon
She was excellent, patient and very knowledgeable. She took us to hermitage, Peter and Paul Fortress and Peterhof. We had a great time and she even took interest in the kids and showed them things that would interest then. If I travel back to St. Petersburg I would surely get in touch with her. Her service was affordable and extremely professional. Thanks for making our vacation in St. Petersburg pleasurable.
Dear Anna, I enjoyed our city tour. Didn’t know it’s possible to see and learn about so many places in just a day! Petersburg is beautiful and amazing, city everyone should visit.
My friend and I had just one day in Petersburg and thanks to Anna we’ve seen so much of the city. The walking tour was awesome! Highly recommended.
Anna was very pleasant and professional during our tour. Full of knowledge, ideas and suggestions she engaged us into the Russian history and modern life. We’d seen so much, took like thousands of pictures and loved it in St Pete. Thanks for the experience.
Not a big fan of museums, so decided to see true city life going on a metro tour. That was something! People are nice and friend, the guide is knowledgeable and stations themselves, they are just incredible.
Saint Petersburg was a place I always wanted to see, so got a chance to spend there a weekend. And the trip was absolutely worth it! Was able to see Peterhof and Pushkin as well. Thank you, Anna, for your professionalism, knowledge and sense of humor 🙂
The city looks so different from water. Who would know! Fantastic boat tour and nice information I learn from Anna. 100% satisfied with the guide.
Dear Anna, thank you so much for a wonderful time we have spent with you in St Petersburg... We really enjoyed, and had an excellent, joyful tours with you and so many amazing learnings you have shared with us! The whole organization, professional approach and especially positive energy during the days we spent with you were amazing!
Had a trip with kids to Peterhof. They loved it and I did! Of course, one of the most beautiful places I’ve seen. Anya, thank you for accompanying us. Your stories made a trip even more exciting!
We did an nice and flexible tour, according to my wishes. Anna impressed often by the great knowledge about Details of the history and art of her City SPB - and you can easily imagine, that she loved SPB.
Anna was a fabulous guide today. I really enjoyed how well the tour was planned and having a guide who has a genuine passion for the magnificent culture of St Petersburg. She was also understanding of my interest of having some of the tour in Russian though her English is excellent. I highly recommend her!
I love travelling and can say that St Pete impressed me a lot! Thanks, Anna, for making my stay in St Pete memorable. I’ve learn a lot from our tours. Can’t wait to see you next time when coming to St Pete with my family!
We got to St. Petersburg for a couple of days, wanted to watch something special from russian history. Our guide Ann suggested to get to Pushkin City. It was really fun!!! We heard lots of things! Amber room is something special! Ann thanks for interesting tour.
