3 days visa-free private shore tour for cruisers with magnificent churches, royal palaces and a unique Faberge museum


If you have 3 days in St. Petersburg, this tour is for you. You will be able to see the most of St. Petersburg without rush with private guide and driver services. Sightseeing tour with the visits to Peter and Paul Fortress, the Church on the Spilled Blood and St. Isaac's Cathedral is not only an enjoyable and memorable experience, it is a key to the city's secrets which St. Petersburg has been keeping for many centuries and now is ready to share with you. Visitors of St. Petersburg are struck by marvelous palaces of the Romanovs with their amazing architecture and astonishing amount of gold used for interior decoration. I will guide you not only through the city and royal residences, we will also visit some peculiar places which aren't included in 2-days tours like Faberge museum which collection is beyond admiration and the Usupov palace revealing a heart-breaking story of Rusputin.
For this tour you don't need Russian visa, I'll provide you with visa-free support.

A Recent Review of this tour

There is so much to do in St. Petersburg! Alexandra took us to see the highlights, and made allowances for our specific interests. She communicated has comprehensive knowledge of the city's history extremely well (and she also chose great Russian restaurants for lunches). We would recommend her highly to others heading to St. Petersburg.
