Decide right on the spot if you want to visit this museum or not!


If you are a cruiser who doesn't want to have a tour with a big group of strangers with tight timing it is a right tour for you.

I will provide your visa free disembarkation and meet you in cruise terminal. We will go to the historical center of Saint Petersburg by public transportation (bus and metro) and we will decide what to do right on the spot: more walking, more museums or local life experience! Vodka museum or/and Church on Spilt Blood? Peterhof Park or/and Caviar Bar? Peter and Paul Fortress or local market?! Saint Isaac's Cathedral or. . . shopping! Let's do whatever you want right now!

To provide your visa free disembarkation I need to have a scan of your passports. I will receive it only if you send it via ToursByLocals website. 10-15 days before arrival to Saint Petersburg I will send you a paper (so called TourTicket) to be printed and shown at the passport control.

See you in Saint Petersburg dear Cruisers!

Itinerary

10 AM: meeting at the port (I will be waiting for you inside cruise terminal right after passport control with a sign with your name)

We can do whatever you want but here is a list of the highlights you can chose right on the spot (if it is not a day off) to visit:
- Peter and Paul Fortress
- Church on Spilt Blood

- Museum of Soviet Arcade Machines

6PM: back to the port

Could you please tell me if you definitely want to visit the Hermitage as I have to order tickets beforehand?

A Recent Review of this tour

Vadim's tour was perfect for us! We wanted to see the highlights of St Petersburg from the perspective of a local. We needed a flexible tour with a 3 and 1 year old and he accommodated us. He was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot after the tour. His English was great and he was always punctual. He gave us the option of using public transportation and also a private car. We really enjoyed when he took us to some local places and we tried all the Russian delicacies.
