Visa-Free Guided Hermitage Museum and Boat Excursion


This is a perfect tour for the cruisers who have only one day to explore St. Petersburg. You will make the most of your stay in just 1 day! The trip starts with the city tour which gives you a unique opportunity to see world-famous monuments, amazing architecture and astonishing churches with your own eyes. The itinerary includes a visit to Peter and Paul Fortress during which you will learn tales of dramatic historic events and personal courage. A visit to the Church of the Savior on the Spilled Blood makes the tour fascinating due to the astonishing beauty and incredible history of the Cathedral. Lunch break in the middle of the tour gives you a chance to taste traditional Russian meals and have a rest after which we will come to the most impressive part of our tour - the gem of St. Petersburg, the world-famous Hermitage museum.
For this tour you don't need Russian visa, I will provide you with visa-free support.

A Recent Review of this tour

My family (me, wife, 2 teenagers and 2 grandparents) went on many private tours during our 2 week Baltic cruise and Alexandra's was by far the best - wish she could have been our guide at every port! Alexandra has a doctorate in linguistics and communicates extremely well. She is from St Petersburg and her knowledge of the city history was superb. She was highly efficient and knew how to get us in and out of crowded sites quickly while ensuring we were able to enjoy the absolute best of St Petersburg!
