If you have very limited time in the city and wish to see the cream of the crops, this program is for you. Cruise ships usually come early in the morning and early start makes it possible to cover quite a lot of things in one day - city tour with all the major attractions, Peterhof with fountains, which is called Russian Versailles and gems of the world famous Hermitage collection.

Important!!! The HERMITAGE is closed on MONDAY, Spilt Blood Church on Wednesday! If you come in one of these days contact me to adjust the program!

The tour price includes a private vehicle with a professional driver. I'm able to tell you the stories or discuss interesting subjects all time, while the driver is taking care about your safety and comfort- he can pick us up and drop off where it's the most convenient during the tour.

Any tour can be customized for you! Contact me with any ideas about your trip to St. Petersburg. I'll be happy to make a tour specially for you.
