1 Day Visa-free tour of the gems of the city. All entrance fees are included.
If you are visiting Saint-Petersburg for the first time and would like to get acquainted with its most fabulous parts and museums, you have chosen the right tour!
In the course of the day we will visit the birthplace of the city - Peter and Paul's fortress, the world well-known Hermitage museum, the Palace Square with its spectacular views and one of the most recognized cathedrals in this country at your choice.
Although Saint-Petersburg is sometimes dubbed as a museum city, we can have lunch at a local cafe or a restaurant with Russian cuisine to feel the taste of Russia and learn what Russian words "borsch" and "pirozhki" mean!
If you are a cruise passenger and do not have Russian visa, I can provide you with visa-free support.
