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.
The tour can be customized for your number of people.

A Recent Review of this tour

Extremely interesting visit thanks to Irina K. She has a very deep knowledge and understanding of the places we visited and of Russian history. She was tremendously efficient in getting us around the city and into the suburbs to see Peterhof and Catherine's Palace and in avoiding the long lines everywhere. We appreciated her sens of accommodation as we made several new requests during our tour. She was very easy going, has an excellent command of English and we got along very well. We highly recommend her
