2-day private Visa-Free tour of St.Petersburg for cruise ship passengers


Let me invite you on the two-day private tour around St. Petersburg and its beautiful suburbs. Get ready to see the most impressive city sights and the former Jewish quarter Kolomna. We'll visit the best-known museums such as the Hermitage, Catherine's palace with Amber Room included, Peterhof Fountain Park, as well as our Grand Choral Synagogue. I will show you the palaces of the Russian Tsars and the residences of prominent Jewish families.
You'll find out the basics of the history of St. Petersburg and Russia, hearing fun anecdotes about the Russian Tsars and learning how Jewish and Russian history blends together in St. Petersburg.
Ask me any question related to history, and all the way to the present-day life in Russia, and get detailed and thorough answers.
This tour is visa-free. It means that by booking a tour with me, you'll avoid the need to obtain your own Russian visa. I will take care of all the formalities and provide you with all the documents necessary to disembark in St. Petersburg.

A Recent Review of this tour

Svetlana was the perfect guide. From the moment she met us at the ship to when she left us after two days everything was great. She is knowledgeable,personable, and most important she understood us. She adjusted to our speed when we needed to slow down obtained a wheelchair when one of our group was having trouble, and made St Petersburg come alive for us. I highly recommend her!
