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.

We are a group of 10 ranging from 13 to 82 and I would rate Polina 10 stars if possible. Everything was organised perfectly, from meeting us at the port, to the courteous driver and excellent mini-bus with complimentary bottled water. Polina's expert English plus in-depth knowledge of Russian history complimented her varied and interesting tour, amended to fit around the changeable weather. I cannot recommend Polina highly enough for any tour group. Thank you Polina - we had an amazing three days x
