Hello and Welcome to Saint Petersburg!

Raisa Shilina My name is Raisa Shilina,

I am a founder and CEO of Fun SPB Tours. I also occasionally do guiding myself as it is my passion and I love meeting new people.

I started my career in tourism and hospitality 12 years ago when I was a student in St. Petersburg State University.  It was then, that I started working as a guide for big cruise companies.    Three years ago, I decided to set up my own company.

    My main passion in life has always been travelling. I visited most European countries and I am very proud that my native city Saint Petersburg is an extremely attractive place. When I say attractive, I mean that it has so many different facets, created by its history. Royal residences and palaces of nobility, poor districts, described in Dostoyevsky novels, soviet communal apartments and construction style, modern lifestyle. All this makes a unique blend, which is the spirit of Saint Petersburg and which makes people return here again and again.

Ann I'm Anna, I have worked as a tour guide for already three years, and I think, I could call myself a very lucky person, because after quite a long search I found my vocation. Every time I'm looking forward to my nex tour, and I feel absolutely rewarded when I see so much interest and excitiment in the eyes of my tourists.

No wonder, Saint-Petersburg is always full of mysteries , cultural layers and historical legends left by different epochs and rulers, in this sense it could be compared to a multi-layer cake and what is going to crown it, well, it's up to you...
