3-day private VISA-FREE shore excursion in St.Petersburg, Russia
This three-day tour is a perfectly balanced program specially designed for the passengers of cruise ships that dock in St. Petersburg for three days.
Jewish history is incorporated into general sightseeing - so, get ready for some interesting facts.
I created my tour to make it as comfortable as possible. This way, you can enjoy the city rather than exhausting yourself by rushing from one place to another. We will visit all the loveliest and most intriguing sights of the city and its surroundings - but there'll also be time to walk around, chat, enjoy a meal, and feel the atmosphere of our vibrant city.
We visit Catherine's palace with Amber room, Peterhof, Hermitage museum, Grand Choral Synagogue, Spilled Blood church, St. Isaak's cathedral, Yusupov palace, Ethnography museum, Faberge museum.
In all museums we bypass the line!
I can also set up a customized tour for you - just in case you have any special requests or if you want to see any other sites. Please feel free to contact me for more information

Superb! We could not have asked for a better guide, or a more delightful one, for our three packed days in St. Petersburg. Svetlana was most helpful and flexible, working with her by email before arriving in St. Petersburg, as we customized our itinerary. She is a wealth of knowledge about her city... its history, art, culture, monuments and museum. We would not hesitate to recommend Svetlana to anyone who wishes to have the best of the best guided tour in St. Petersburg.
