St-Petersburg in 1 day. City Highlights Tour covering the major sights and views

Have only 1 day in St-Petersburg and want to see the highlights?
Enjoy your time with me - an experienced guide who can show you around and make your day.
Saint Petersburg, the former capital of Russia, and nowadays the second largest city in this country, is one of those unique places in the world that everyone should see. It is a city of great beauty and charm, wonderful palaces and churches, rich museums, profound history and culture.
Sightseeing tour with a visit to St. Isaac's Cathedral, the Cathedral on the Spilled Blood and the State Hermitage museum.
St. Isaac's Cathedral can be easily called as one of the greatest monuments ever created.
The Cathedral on the Spilled Blood is imposing, very Russian in style building is one of those sights without which a tourists' impression of St-Petersburg will never be completed.
The Winter Palace was the main residence of the Russian tsars now it is commonly known as"the Hermitage" though it is actually the name of the museum, accommodated in the palace complex

A Recent Review of this tour

Elena was incredible! Our tour was for just one day and even we only had to do the Hermitage, The Church of the spilled blood and St. Isaac's Church, we did much more!! We did the tour walking (which I totally recommend) and she took as to nice shops and places near by, for me this where the best hints of the city. She explained the history (which is sooooo long) in one day trying to achieve the most important points and which relevant for us to understand everything that we were seeing. EXCELLENT!
