2-day private Visa-Free tour of St.Petersburg for cruise ship passengers


St. Petersburg is without any doubts a highlight of Northern Baltic Cruises. It's a unique city which combines Russian history and European culture. It's former Imperial capital and the birthplace of Russian Revolution. Beautiful palaces neighbor Soviet monuments.
I am pleased to welcome you onto the great journey through 300 years of St. Petersburg history.
This tour is created for the cruise ship passengers who want to see as much as possible within limited time of two days.
We will visit the most famous museums of the city and its surroundings.
Of course we bypass any lines at the museums entrances.

A Recent Review of this tour

Excellent 2 day private guide. As I was highly interested in art, architecture, textiles and performing arts, she customised a day tour which encompassed sightseeing of the major city buildings, churches and cathedrals as well as a visit to the impressive Ysupov Palace and Theatre museum. As well as being a very organised tour guide, she gave good advise on where to eat and shop. Highly recommend!
