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!

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.

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! Let me know about your ideas or contact me for options.
