All Entrance Fees Included, Visa Free tour
This is a comprehensive package, very well balanced. It 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 (car, minivan or mini bus) with a professional driver. The guide is fully involved in guiding, while the driver is taking care of your safety and comfort. You'll be picked up and dropped 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.

Irina and her driver were excellent. We were picked up from our cruise ship in St. Petersburg and spent two days visiting the city, museums, walking the sites, and seeing Catherine's palace and Peterhof. Our time in the Hermitage was well spent, and we were able to get into the neighboring facility to see the Impressionist collection. Irina was informative, pleasant, well organized, and her English was excellent. We never waited on lines, and always felt that we were "special". The highlight of our trip!
