We had a great experience with Natalia on a customized photography stroll around some of the less touristy parts of the city. She is a super knowledgeable and fun guide and really knows the city well.

I gave Natalia of PhotoStroll SPb a mission!
I wanted to photograph the St Petersburg the tourists don’t see and she totally exceeded my expectations. We hit the Metro and the adventure began. I would highly recommend Natalia to any photographers visiting SPb.

"6 jours à Saint Petersbourg guidé par Natalia, amoureuse de sa ville."

Ces 6 jours étaient merveilleux. Le programme était du "sur mesure" (mai 2017).
Nous allions de découverte en découverte. Quel bonheur !Nous : 3 couples d'amis français pris en charge depuis notre arrivée en train à St Petersbourg vers notre logement appartement et hôtel, et pendant toutes nos excursions dans la ville et autour. Natalia, jeune et dynamique nous a conseillé de façon très judicieuse pour les restaurants. A ne surtout pas manquer le show au restaurant KATYUSHA (chants et musique russe avec participation des clients). Toutes les visites étaient commentées au niveau historique, architecture, anecdotes.
Natalia nous a surpris avec ses selfies du groupe. Nous la recommandons vivement en tant que guide et organisatrice d'excursions.

I booked two days with Natalia and they were the highlights of my week in Russia.
She provided essential details about what to prepare beforehand and suggested what would be the best way to truly discover St Petersburg. As a solo traveler and an introvert, I was a bit nervous, but Natalia seemed to know what I was hoping for and more. She is very friendly, attentive and understanding. Her passion for the city and history made the tours very informative, yet entertaining. I enjoyed learning more about the history of the city than I expected, through simple and fun stories, which made the trip more meaningful and memorable.
Peterhof was an excellent choice to unwind in the nature, aside from the palaces and fountains. The city stroll, starting from Peter and Paul Fortress, allowed me to understand the foundation of St Petersburg. Natalia pointed out interesting points along the trip and was always able to answer questions, with photos and references.
Khob khun ka, Natalia!

My 3 friends and I strolled with Natasha in the afternoon on Aug.5, which was absolutely an amazing start of a journey in St. Petersburg~As for the tour itself, it covers a great number of major hubs for travellers in SPB - from the magnificent St. Isaac's Cathedral to the renowned Hermitage, from the breathtaking Fontanka River to the brilliant Saviour of the Spilled Blood, even including some less well-known yet similarly dramatic sites such as St. Michael's Castle, the first post office and the first art museum in SPB and many romantic lanes in the city... Also some yummy pies at Stolle gave the stroll a fantastic end!
As for the photos, by no means should I naysay that they are more than marvellous. Natasha can really capture the model in the depth of each one's heart haha.
As for the tour guide and the photographer, she's definitely the best company I can think of. More than showing the streets and spots and every ordinary sights, she also introduced to as countless either funny or tragic stories about each place, famous rulers, the country and the city. It's extraordinary for me to find such an insightful and lovely friend while travelling in a spectacular city!

I booked our Photostroll SPb experience in the hope that we could take in as much of St Petersburg in the limited time that we had.Natalia provided personalised service - even helping us with directions and advice for best means of transport to our hotel. It was reassuring to have a connection in such a foreign place.Her knowledge and passion about St Petersburg was infectious as she explained the idiosyncrasies of this remarkable city, its history and its people.Our experience with Photostroll SPb was outstanding and it was completed when we received our wonderful memories captured in beautiful photography. Thank you Natalia :)I highly recommend Photostroll SPb to complete any visit to St Petersburg.P.S. Natalia knows little hidden gems such as the perfect Ukranian restaurant where we enjoyed our first authentic meal in SPb together.August 2015

I was feeling bored in my hotel during stay in St.Petersburg. Because I didn't speak to anybody.
After asking one of my Russian friends about English speaking Guide, she informed me about Natalya. I did not know anything about St.Petersburg (Peterhof) history before meet. I learned a lot of things about St. Petersburg as well as The Peterhof park which we visited.The largest of Peterhof's palaces looks truly imposing when seen from the Lower or Upper Gardens. it fascinated me well enough when I knew the place was made 300 years back. It was a  really amazing tour & I will never forget it in my life.

Natalia showed us (me, my wife and our parents) around St Petersburg for 3 hours, in that time she fit in an amazing amount of information and facts about the places we visited.
Wether it was about the monarchy of St Petersburg, the architecture, the initial planning of the city and even a dab of military history, Natalia explained all of this in a logical and simple manner. Not only will she be able to answer any questions you might be able to come up with she will also take excellent photos of you and your group exploring the city, wether it be a more natural and relaxed style or the more clichéd tourist snaps she always managed to get the best parts with perfect timing.
Her English is also faultless and I'd recommended her to any group that want more back story to what St Petersburg is, was and how it became one of the most beautiful and enchanting cities I've ever seen.
Thanks very much, Natalia! Wish you all the best and we hope to see you again :)

We had the most remarkable family get together with Natalia.Everything was perfect and was without a doubt our favorite family trip. We felt that Natalia (our guide) truly cared about us and did her best to make this trip a memorable one. This definitely has become the most eye-opening, adventurous, and stunning journey of our lives. Something we will always remember, draw upon, and cherish for many years to come.We were pleasantly surprised by the diversity of our trip. We definitely will be back! :)

Absolutely brilliant - cannot recommend highly enough!
We did two PhotoStrolls with Natalia in July 2018, namely a full day city PhotoStroll and a Peterhoff PhotoStroll.
This was our first visit to St Petersburg and Natalia was the perfect guide. She speaks excellent English and is very well informed, energetic and passionate about this wonderful city. She has a warm and engaging personality, and we thoroughly enjoyed spending time with her. Her enthusiasm is infectious and by the end of our four day visit we felt that we could not have had a better introduction to St Petersburg.We have since received Natalia's photos of both PhotoStrolls, and we are delighted with them! The photos are highly professional and will serve as lifelong mementos of a wonderful trip.
Thank you, Natalia, for making this trip truly memorable!

Our aim was to go on the Transsiberian Railway to discover the far east of Russia, and we decided to start our trip in Saint Petersburg. We discovered the city with a classic Photostroll, along with a guide that explained to us the main tourist and artistic attractions and posing for Natasha's camera.

It was a great stroll, a lesson of history and art and a fun afternoon!! We got all the good tips for places where tourists usually don't go, such as a really cool café on a terrace roof on Nevsky Avenue. The sights were amazing! Then, we ended up our tour in a very cosy restaurant, where we tried authentic Russian and Ukranian specialities. Yumm! We have a really great memory of our stay in St Petersburg, as well as a folder full of incredible professional photographs, that we could have never taken ourselves!

A new friend in St Petersburg - highly recommended!
We did the classic city photostroll with Natalia for 3 hours in August 2018. She took photographs of us throughout the city, and the photos turned out to be amazing. A great way to remember our vacation. In between taking photos, she would tell us about the history and the culture. She is an excellent tour guide, with a wealth of information on St Petersburg and Russia, and will show you some secret places not found in guidebooks. She also took us to a hipster cafe which was a hidden gem for the locals, which was a very pleasant experience.
I wish we booked a 2 day tour of the city with Natalia instead of going on the bus tour (SPB tours). She is really friendly and we had a great time.

We had two wonderful long walks with Natalia.

First was purely dedicated to Petrogradskaya district and another was sort of improvisational tour around the city center. Natalia is unique in her deep historical/art expertise and ability to tell exiting stories about personalities, buildings etc that make you feel the intangible atmosphere of the place. Though it rained during the whole tour , 3 hours passed very quickly. Natalia also gave us some good advice about theater plays and restaurants. When next time in S-Pb we'll definitely book another tour with her.
