Hi, I am Anna Gaplichnaya, local English-speaking tour guide in St Petersburg Russia.
Welcome to my website!
I’m 34-year-old with a degree in the specialty of “linguist, translator” and sufficient skills and knowledge to offer you one of the best guided tours in St Petersburg.
I’ve been working as a guide-interpreter for years and confirm my professionalism, possessing necessary licenses for tours in the main museums of St Petersburg and its suburbs, as well as accreditation at the City Tourist Information Bureau.
I am fond of history, architecture, arts and literature. One of my greatest hobbies is travelling. I’ve visited about 50 Russian cities from Kaliningrad to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. Thus, truly understand how important the work of a guide is for the best impressions of the surroundings.
I offer you private tours of the most interesting, beautiful and special places of our city.
Personal tour is an opportunity to plan your route according to own interests and needs, get help in choosing sights to watch and visit, adjust a tour at any time, ask questions, communicate with a friendly and knowledgeable local, and, of course, make the best photos.
Here you can:
- Learn about popular sightseeing in St Petersburg and area
- Read about various events and places
- Get to know hotels, transportation, food costs and more
- Book a visa-free shore excursion tour or other type of excursion
- Ask questions
Check my blog to get useful tourist information about St Petersburg.

Sometimes people’s opinion is more significant than facts
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.
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!
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.
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 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.
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.
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 🙂
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!
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.
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 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
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.
Will surely recommend your name to my family and friends who wish to visit st Petersburg.
Thanks so much again for today. You helped make my stay here more meaningful. You are very good at what you do!
