Visit real ancient Russia so close to St.Petersburg with a private guide
It is very interesting and long tour through Russian land. Wake early to start the drive to Novgorod. On the way you will see villages, small towns, simple local churches and in the middle of the day you will arrive to that ancient city. Here you will have a tour with local guide that will show you all sights included to the list of Unesco: the oldest churches in Russia, Kremlin, outdoor museum of ancient wooden architecture Vitaslavlitzi, several ancient and active monasteries.
Here you will get the break for lunch in the busy local restaurant not spoilt by many visitors and after continue the city tour.
In the end of the tour you will have 2 hours ride back to the hotel - great chance to relax.
This is a great opportunity to see something different so close to St. Petersburg

Polina was a superb guide. I spent a prior day with her visiting Peterhof and Pushkin. She brought in a local Novgorod guide, Natalia, expert in Novgorod history. Despite being about 3.5 hours by car from St. Petersburg it was time well spent and it gave me a new perspective on medieval Russian history. Polina is fluent in English and our conversation during the long drive provided considerable insight into current Russian social life. My visit to Russia gained considerable depth from this trip!
