Relax your body and soul on a tour that will make your day!
This tour will make your day! A great shopping experience and body relax at a Spa and sauna center, followed by nice food and drinks.
We will meet and go to any shops you'd like. If you do not know what you want to see I will lead you to the most historically popular malls of the city. If you want something special we will go to the crafts shops, souvenir shops and Russian fur or jewels shops. We can even visit some vintage second-hand and the other more "underground" market places.
Anything can be planned, especially if you tell me your preferences in advance. I will help you go through the whole purchasing procedure, choosing, asking for and also getting a tax free if possible.
After the great shopping experience we will go to the Sauna and restaurant place. Guess where it is located? On the old style real wooden boat that is moored to the embankment. The place has a possibility of Sauna and Spa as well as food and drinks while enjoying a great view.
Optional: small boat channel tour.
11:00 Meeting and leaving for shopping
11:30-14:30 Shopping time. It can vary and we can decide it during our trip. We can talk in advance about what you need and I can advice you what is good to buy in Russia. Also we can visit good souvenir shops, craft shops, historical malls and even second-hand vintage shops. I will help you with any possible upcoming questions, advice, lead and explain about the goods, the use, the customs and habits of Russian people when they are shopping. Sometimes I know where to buy the same product cheaper than in gift shops and how to check the quality of the goods.
15:00-18:00 Time on the boat. Relaxing in sauna and taking Spa procedures. Eating and drinking on board of the old ship and enjoying an amazing panorama.
18:30-19:30 Optional channel boat trip. This optional tour inside the tour can be moved to any part of the day. It is a cultural tour. Let me know and I will add it into the custom tour!
