2-Day private guided shore excursion around Saint-Petersburg and its environs


Dear guests!
I invite you to the unique visa-free 2-Day shore tour around Saint-Petersburg.
During this interesting tour you will be involved in the nice atmosphere of grandeur and splendor of the imperial capital of Russia - Saint-Petersburg. On our way to the exquisite Faberge museum we will see the embankment of Neva river, Egyptian sphinxes, Palace bridge and Palace embankment. After that we will explore the collection of Faberge eggs and Royal jewelry. After that we will feel like locals and enjoy the walk along Nevsky prospect, visits to the churches and cathedrals, shops and emporiums. Besides, I will show you the collection of Russian paintings from the 13 to the 21st century in the Russian art museum.
On the 2nd day we will visit Pavlovsk Royal palace which belonged to the son of Catherine-the-great - Paul I. In the 2nd part of the tour you will also see another countryside town - Peterhof and its Royal Gardens full of surprises, trick fountains, pavillions and golden sculptures.
