Private Driving City Tour

I will be glad and proud to show you highlights of St Petersburg!
During your private driving city tour, you will enjoy numerous fantastic photo stops, will know the history of this incredible city, many interesting facts and take beautiful pictures. The city that had been the metropolis of Russian Empire for over 200 years and still impresses you with its palaces and bridges. The city that survived the Revolution 1917 and the Siege in WW2, the city where Dostoevsky wrote his immortal novels and Chaikovsky was inspired, the motherland of avant-garde art.
