2 days in St Petersburg with your private guide and a driver

You will see the most magnificent attractions, find out more about Russian history and art, discover Russian lifestyle and cuisine and feel the unique romantic atmosphere of the most European Russian city.

During this tour you will not only get a general overview of St Petersburg, but also visit its main highlights - the Hermitage museum housing sumptuous rooms of the former Winter Palace and a fantastic art collection, lavishly decorated St Isaac Cathedral, fabulous Church on Spilled Blood as well as a suburban gem - Catherine Park and Palace with the world-famous Amber room.

We will have a pleasant stroll down the main avenue lined with marvelous palaces, cathedrals, bridges and monuments. A boat tour (in the winter time - car tour) is a very enjoyable way to get a general overview of the city and to enjoy picturesque views.

The tour can be tailored to meet your interests, so do not hesitate to ask any questions or make any suggestions.

A Recent Review of this tour

Katya was punctual, friendly and accommodating, she took onboard our wishes and tailored the tour accordingly. Her English is excellent. Her company was invaluable at the Hermitage -it's such a huge place that having a guide is the only way to make sure one doesn't miss the highlights. Katya also knows nice little places for a quick lunch or afternoon tea.
