All the best of Saint-Petersburg in one day

During one full day you will visit all famous and the most beautiful places in Saint-Petersburg. We will start with a city tour and I'll show you best placces to take great pictures.
We will visit with you the place our city started from - Peter and Paul Fortress and a cathedral inside the fortress - a burial place of all Russian tzars starting from Peter the Great.
We will visit the most famous cathedrals not only in St Petersburg but in Russia - St Isaak Cathedral and Savior on the Spilled Blood Church - a unique place where all walls inside are covered with 7000 sq. meters of mosaics. If the weather will allow us, we can go up to a colonnade of St Isaak Cathedral, over 40 meters above the city!
After lunch we will visit our State Hermitage museum. Its not only the Winter Palace - the official residence of Romanov family, but also incredible art gallery which can be compared only with the Louvre. I'll pre-book tickets not to waste time in long lines.

A Recent Review of this tour

Olga was very knowlegeable and conscientious as she escorted us through many locations around the city. She was responsive and considerate, and we felt that we were with a friend in St. Petersburg. We enjoyed lunch at a local fast food place that was delicious. Olga was especially knowledgeable about the artwork in the Hermitage, which was a highlight for us. We also had an outstanding driver who very safely navigated us around the city. We highly recommend this pair - I am sorry for not knowing name of d
