Important Information

Actually I am rather flexible with the time, although I try to avoid working at nights except the period of "White Nights". And probably there might be taken into consideration the fact that there are less people at the streets of St.Petetsburg at early weekend's mornings. Several day tours to Karelia have to be thoroughly discussed and booked at least 1 month before the planned data.

Unavailable from 15.05. till 30.06.2021.
