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 which dock in St. Petersburg for three days.
Jewish history is incorporated into the general sightseeing.
I create my tour in the most comfortable way to let you enjoy the city rather than get tired of rushing from one place to another.
We visit all the best sights of the city and its surroundings, but we also have time to walk around, chat, have nice lunch, feel the athmosphere of the vibrant city.

I can also create a customized tour for you in case you have any special requests or if you want to see other sites. Please contact me for more information.

A Recent Review of this tour

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.
