Anglotourismo guides are professional city experts, members of Anglotourismo team, who run our regular river cruises. Eager to feel hard ground under their feet they'll come out of the way to share their knowledge and enthusiasm with our visitors on this informative and interactive walking tour. In fact, they all took part in designing this tour that makes it a perfect selection of the top sites and stories Anglotourismo has to offer!
My guide Mike was very friendly from the start. He showed interesting sights and peppered his presentation with bits of history, architecture, culture and personal insights. I was also encouraged to ask questions. I enjoyed the walking tour very much.
To me, it was a very special experience to walk through St. Petersburg with Michael and Olga, guides from Anglotourismo. St. Petersburg is the city which I have planned to visit, but due to COVID-19 pandemic my flights were cancelled. Fortunately, I have got this unique opportunity to join the guided tour right the same day my departure was originally scheduled. Remotely, but with the virtual "Being There" effect, we had a decent walk, stopping by the city hidden gems. Michael as a local resident and a professional guide provides you not only a comprehensive historical background and architectural heritage introduction, which of course are closely intertwined in St. Petersburg, but also current views on the local society, education, multicultural kitchen and even music. It gives you a live taste of the city and the citizens' everyday life, so I highly recommend to join the St. Petersburg Off the Beaten Track On-line Walking Tour!
Such a great walk! Misha (the guide) was fun and informative. The pace of the tour was perfect. I loved that the walk took us not only to the major sites, but also through courtyards and ordinary living areas. Many beautiful buildings, and all of them have a lot of history.
