2 days visa-free private shore tour for cruisers: highlights of St. Petersburg, Catherine's Palace and Peterhof fountain park


This tour is ideal for cruisers who have two days to explore St. Petersburg. Two days will give you a great opportunity to see the most of the city center and royal palaces of the Romanovs. We start our tour by going out of the city to see Catherine's Palace which is beyond admiration with its amazing architecture and fascinating interior decoration. You will have a chance to try authentic Russian food in a famous Podvorie restaurant which attracts visitors not only by delicious food but also by its design and excellent service. The afternoon is devoted to a pleasant walk in the Peterhof park called a seaside paradise by its founder Peter the Great for its overwhelming beauty of fountains, gardens and pavilions. The second day is devoted to exploring the city center with its world-famous monuments, amazing architecture and astonishing churches.
For this tour you don't need Russian visa, I will provide you with visa-free support.
* If your party is more than 7, write to me, please.
