It's me, Andrey Vereschagin, a full-time freelance tourguide in St.Petersburg - depending mainly on my own resources since 1996. Private tours fitting all tastes. Touring groups and individuals (from 1 to 47 persons in a group) in Russia, guiding St.Petersburg with suburbs and Moscow, experience in bridge engineering (15 years), physical ability to help handicapped in not so friendly Russian environment, arrangements of Diamond rooms of the Hermitage with personal guiding inside, visa-free solutions for cruise passengers, live Soviet-era experience for sharing (born 1956), indigenous St.Petersburger (parents survived the first winter of the Siege in 1941-42).
