My aim is to introduce you to the world beyond the city guidebooks, explain the meaning of the signs and symbols, trace the origin of styles, tendencies and trends in history and culture, politics and society… and do it not tediously, but entertainingly!I also cooperate with other guides – most of them are professional historians, art historians and university teachers, all competent experts in their fields.

Wonderful experience working with Timofey and his associates in St. Petersburg. The two day itinerary was well planned and executed, the knowledge of the guides was outstanding, the historical perspective excellent and knowldege of the exhibits in the museums was surperb. The four members of our party had a wonderful time.

I would highly recommend to anyone interested in touring the sights in and near St. Petersburg. When I return with my son in a few years, I will definitely be in touch with Timofey again.
