Julia and Vladimir of Dancing Bear Tours in St Petersburg Russia Who am I? My name is Julia and I am a professional English speaking guide and a native of St Petersburg. From my childhood I was carried away with English and fine arts and had the idea of combining these two passions and share the result with visitors to our beautiful city. I am a fully licensed guide in all main museums of our city (which means, by the way, that I have free entrance to these museums) with a deep knowledge of fine arts and Russian history. As you have found, I’ve created my own website and now invite tourists from abroad, working as a private guide in St Petersburg.

My husband Vladimir: He is a graduate from St Petersburg Mining University. He is an expert in Russia’s modern life and you can discuss with him anything connected with our everyday life and politics. His English is always improving and he is ready to share his impressions of Russian life with visitors to the city. Most importantly, Vladimir is our driver and navigator to all the attractions and sites in St. Petersburg. Above all, safety and comfort come first for our guests!


Nina - Guide for Dancing Bear Tours in St. Petersburg Russia


Nina, our daughter: She helps us from time-to-time by being a guide in the smaller museums and meeting tourists at the airport. She is a student of the mathematics faculty at the local university and also has a strong passion and love for St Petersburg. Her youthful energy is always appreciated by visitors who take a tour with us.

We are very flexible and never offer our tourists fixed prices on our services. Everything depends on how many people are in your group and how much would you like to see. Tell us your budget and interests (it is very important) and we will tailor your program for you — generally within 24 hours.

Welcome to the Family!
