Relaxed private tour

This is one of the most full tour I can offer for travellers . But also the most relaxed - you will miss almost nothing here of main sights bit also will get that precious local experience - local streets, cafe for locals, farmer market, metro.
As for main program - here we have all must haves - Hermitage and Impressionists, Faberge Museum with wonderful collection of Imperial eggs, Russian Museum - to understand better that mysterious Russian soul and Peterhof with fountains - in good weather Peterhof is never enough) Pavlovsk will be great example of opulent palace without gold)
All this great things you will see in relaxed nice pace without rush and standing in the lines.
For the break I will offer you lunch in one of the most famous and local places.
If you have this great chance to stay in St. Petersburg for 3 days, spend them with me to get the best experience.

A Recent Review of this tour

Polina was marvelous. Spent three full days - delighted we booked a large block of time. Good value. Navy celebration was on and Polina made sure we saw as much as we wanted plus see the sights, even with every bridge closed to traffic. English skills: excellent, subject knowledge: vast. Strong communication, well organized, and good driver. She was well tuned into our desires and thoughtful with our needs / requests. Her pleasant, charming personality made our experience most memorable.
