Natalia Ilinskaya

Meet Natalia

I started my work as a guide in 2003 and loved it from the start. In 2014 I joined the Sundowners Overland team escorting journeys along the Silk Road and Trans Siberian Railway. I enjoy sharing the true culture and atmosphere of St. Petersburg. I believe that the face of every city are the people who live there, so I pay great attention to show you St.Petersburg as a local, the city I was raised.

Favourite thing about Tour Leading: Meeting and helping people.

Favourite place to visit and why: I have visited almost all countries in Europe, USA, Central Asia, China, India, northern and western parts of Africa. Central Asia is my favourite place to visit - it is amazing and unique.

On the road tips: Enjoy every moment of your life. Life is beautiful and short. Travelling opens your mind. All you need is positivity.

Hobbies, achievements and dreams: Art critic, Academy of fine arts & Literature degree. Professional licensed guide in St.Petersburg, accompaning groups to Europe, translation for theatres, teaching guiding and art. Design. Wax modelling.

I love life, I love meeting people, I adore travelling. I enjoy every moment of my life! I look forward to meeting you on your Sundowners Overland journey.
