Hermitage, Tsar's Selo with Amber room, Peterhof and city sights during private tour of Saint-Petersburg
This two-day tour is perfect for cruise passengers.
Saint-Petersburg is a special city in Russia. This is not a typical Russian place but the bridge which connects East and West. In this city in the early 20th century an event occurred that changed the history of the whole country - Russian revolution. Here you will find a mix of European architecture, world masterpieces and Russian hospitality. During these two days we are planning to visit the largest museum in the country - the Hermitage museum, see the famous churches and cathedrals. In the suburbs we will visit the elegant former Imperial residences, where you will enjoy parks, fountains and you will see the famous Amber room. Feel yourself like locals tasting the tradition cuisine. Find a new angle for your photos during the canal ride. And all this will be accompanied by stories about our history, Russian culture, architecture and politics!
Extra evening program can be added upon your wish.

We asked Irina, if she would customize a tour of 4 people, while our ship was docked in St Petersburg Russia for two days. Irina was very responsive to our request, communicated frequently and put together more than 10 venues, that not only included Peterhof and Catherine Palace, but an outstanding canal cruise. Irina took care of Visa's, tickets, lunch reservations. All we had to do is meet her at the ship's terminal and she took everything from there. The tour not only met but exceeded our expectations.
