- Peterhof - fountain summer residence of the tzars.

- The Hermitage Museum 2 hour tour that covers all the major highlights.

A Recent Review of this tour

Anna made our trip to St. Petersburg a lifelong memory. She is an exceptional guide! Everything we wanted to do, Anna was able to get it done. We are so happy to have met Anna. She helped us avoid the long lines by showing us the areas to avoid during the peak times of the day. We could not recommend Anna Ponomaryova enough, she is an outstanding guide. We felt like we had a private history teacher for 2 days!
