Welcome to Artis Travel. We are a luxury travel company that believes traveling is not only movement through space…but changing emotions, impressions and moods. It’s truly an art form. We specialize in individual and small-group tours in St-Petersburg and its surroundings. Artis Travel was created to provide you with a cultural travel experience that you will always cherish.
Artis Travel is a young, fast-growing travel company established by a travel-guide with over 20 years of work experience.
The world is so big and nice to travel around….and St-Petersburg is one of the most beautiful destinations among them.
“Working as a travel guide for over 20 years and travelling myself I finally decided I am experienced enough to understand people, their needs and desires… this is the time to open a company.
Our team consists of those I have worked with side by side for 20 years. Guides and drivers, those I trust as myself, young and new travel guides, whom I have personally trained, professionals who know their work and do a great job, those who work here because they love the city and what they do. People who work here not because they have to, but because they love their work….happy people who are paid for what they love to do.”
