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

A Recent Review of this tour

Polina drove us to and from Novgorod and en route told us much about Russia and the countryside through which we were passing. Our guide in Novgorod was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the town. He made the day very special for me when I told him that I had recently discovered that I was a descendant of Rurik, the founder of KievanRus.
