Discover the highlights of Saint-Petersburg in two days


If you want to see all the essentials in a rather relaxed way this tour is made for you!

On the first day, we will visit the birthplace of the city , the main museum of the city, the biggest Orthodox cathedral in Saint-Petersburg and many more. Also, we will have a chance to see the beauty of the city not only from a regular point of view but also from water - taking the boat ride along rivers and canals.

On the second day, we will explore the suburbs of Saint-Petersburg. We will visit Peterhof palace, the park with famous fountains and Catherine's Palace in Tsarkoe Selo where we will see the Amber room.

You will have a chance to explore worldwide famous points of interests that Saint-Petersburg has to offer. I will tell you many interesting stories and facts about everyday life and some historical facts. As we will have some free time, you will have a chance to feel like local.

If you have more than 5 people in your group, please require a customized tour.
