Visa free tour for cruise passengers.
It's a well- balanced tour 3 day tour which will let you see all the highlights, all the most interesting and famous museums of St. Petersburg, such as:
Russia's biggest museum - the Hermitage, the birthplace of St. Petersburg - Peter and Paul's Fortress and the Cathedral, former principle cathedral of the city - St. Isaac's Cathedral, purely Russian style church and probably the symbol of St. Petersburg - Cathedral of Our Savior on Spilled Blood.
During this tour you will also visit one of the local active churches, take a metro ride (our metro is the deepest in the world and beautifully ornate with marble sculptures, mosaics etc).
You will also visit two of the most famous former summer residences of Russian royalty: Catherine Palace and Peterhof (Peterhof Lower Park and Peterhof Grand Summer Palace).
Usupov palace shows the interiors of 19 century noble palace, Faberge museum tells for itself.
Note that it is a private tour and we can change the places we visit to make the tour cheaper.
