A really different and wonderful tour of a part of St Petersburg I never would have seen without Alex! He's very knowledgeable about the architecture of the area and gives some great insights into some of the local history and culture that goes along with this. The rooftop experience was also very cool! Highly recommend if you are interested in architecture and seeing a side of the city you would never discover alone.

This experience has an almost academic focus on the architectural topic, but presented in a very available way. It was a completely different experience to many other similar sounding ones we have been to, and in my opinion a very rewarding one. Alex is a great guy, the passion really shows!

Alex is a true architecture geek. You can stand there looking at a building with him, and start to see that building in a whole new way. My knowledge of Art Nuveau, and architecture in general, has been greatly enhanced just from the short time we spent together.
