Main sights and everyday life with a private guide

Saint Petersburg is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. You don't have to take my word for it: you can see it with your own eyes during a walking tour around the downtown. We'll see Nevsky Prospect and wonderful ensemble of three main squares, we'll get a chance to visit one of active Orthodox Churches and take a subway trip in very ornate subway, which is also the deepest in the world. We can go to food market or souvenir shop or any other place you wish. Actually, no fixed itinerary. Just enjoy your time with a local guide!


No fixed itinerary, it depends on your interests, pace, actual location of the starting point.
I would plan to walk along Nevsky Prospect, see the wonderful ensemble of three main squares - Palace Square with the Winter Palace, Alexander Column and General Staff Building; St Isaac's Square with St Isaac's Cathedral, monument to Nicholas I and the Senate Square with the most famous Bronze Horseman. Then along the Neva river to see the University Embankment and the Palace Bridge
It can be very flexible and enjoyable!

A Recent Review of this tour

We spent the day in St. Petersburg With Irina. We had been there three days with Viking, Irina took us inside Church on Spilled Blood and St. Isaac's for great tour and explanation. We had lunch with Irina and our driver, Igor, at a cafe in the theater district. Thanks to Irina our last day is St. Petersburg was well spent.
