As it is a very popular request I made a package that allows you to see most of the attractions of St. Petersburg and also to visit places connected with Jewish history.

We'll do a sightseeing tour, visiting Jewish sights as well; visit Peterhof fountain park, Pushkin (Catherine Palace with Amber Room) and the Hermitage. We'll visit beautiful Grand Choral Synagogue and one of Jewish centers (JESOD or MAOR), where you can communicate with from the community.

If you prefer to concentrate on popular St. Petersburg sights, but would like to visit Synagogue and learn about life of Jews in St. Petersburg from Peter the Great up to now you can book any 'regular' variant and just warn me about it. It's a visit to a Jewish center that should be prearranged.

Any tour can be customized for you! Contact me with any ideas about your trip to St. Petersburg. I'll be happy to send you some other programs for cruise ship passengers or to make a tour just for you.

A Recent Review of this tour

We arrived at the end of May and the weather was cold and raining Irena was able at short notice to change the tour of the gardens at the Peterhof and take us to an indoor market and see the subway which was fascinating something we wouldn't have otherwise seen .The big sights like the Hermatarge and Catherine's palace Irena was very knowledgeable.As we were going to the ballet she arranged for a taxi to take us and collect. We had a very nice two days with a very professional and interesting guide.
