The program includes all main sights of St. Petersburg. It is full but not overloaded.

Three days give you a chance not to rush and also to add some things that match your personal interests.
You'll do a sightseeing tour, visit Peterhof, Pushkin (Catherine Palace with Amber Room), Peter and Paul Fortress, Savior on the Blood Church, St. Isaac's Cathedral, the Hermitage - all the things that you always find in guide books. The tour includes a visit to a beautiful Shuvalov Palace - Faberge Museum famous for the collection of Imperial Easter eggs and many other objects by Faberge and his contemporaries. Or can be changed for a tour in the Russian Museum.

The sights can be rearranged as museums have days off on different days.

Extra evening program (ballet, folk show, restaurant) can be added if you wish.

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 other variant for cruise ship passengers or to make a tailor tour just for you.
