All Entrance Fees Included, Visa Free tour
This is a comprehensive package, very well balanced that allows you to see most of the important sights of St Petersburg.
You'll have a sightseeing tour, visit Peterhof, Pushkin (Catherine Palace with Amber Room), Peter and Paul Fortress, Savior on the Blood Church, the Hermitage and enjoy a canal tour on a private boat. This is a tour of 'moderate' activity, neither very relaxed, nor very active, so some things can be included or excluded to tailor you!
Extra evening program (ballet, folk show, restaurant) can be added upon request.
The sights can be rearranged as museums have days off on different days.
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.

We spent 2 fabulous days in St Petersburg with Irina who was extremely knowledgeable & pleasant to be with. Communication with Irina was great, We had several emails prior to arriving in St Petersburg & she was very happy to accommodate our requests including purchasing tickets to the ballet. We would thoroughly recommend Irina as your guide & using Tours by Locals.
