The Highlights of the Northern Venice with a local private guide

Though 10% per cent of all the cultural heritage of Russia has been concentrated in St. Petersburg and it is still impossible to embrace everything within some days but if you have 3 days in the city let me make your time to work in the most efficient way. During the tour you will be visiting the magnificent sights, revealing the real kaleidoscope of different historical events which had taken place in the city and Russia as well, traditions and mode of life of locals and much more. . The ititnerary which had been tailored especially for the cuise passengers includes attending one of the best museums in the world (Hermitage museum), the greatest Cathedrals, the former winter and summer residences of Russian royalties like Catherine Palace with its splendid Amber room, Pavlovsk Palace reflecting the taste of Paul the Ist family (which differs from Catherine Palace but very amazing too), Peterhoff - the capital of fountains you would be definitely astouned of, the most sumptious metro stations and more. . .

A Recent Review of this tour

Valeria gave us a fantastic 3 days in Saint Petersburg. She was extremely knowledgeable and spoke very good English . We worked out a schedule outlining all the places and sights we wanted to see and she was very flexible in making sure this worked. One of our group was in a wheelchair and she hired a van with a wheelchair hoist . Valeria then worked out what places were not suitable and made sure that no one in the group of 6 missed out on anything. Great to have a local showing you around .
