2-day Private Visa-Free tour of St.Petersburg for the cruise ship passengers


I am pleased to welcome you on a wonderful two-day journey dedicated to Russian history, culture and everyday life. I have picked all the best spots - this includes the most impressive, interesting, and unforgettable sights of my native city, St. Petersburg.
This two-day private visa-free tour will give you a taste of the city, along with its history and culture. Even though it lasts two full sightseeing days, with many museum visits included, I designed it at a comfortable pace without any rush.
On this tour, we will visit the Hermitage Museum, Catherine's Palace with Amber Room, Our Savior on the Spilled Blood Church, Peterhof Fountain Park, and Yusupov Palace.
Aside from visiting museums and palaces, we will also have time for a pleasant lunch and a relaxing conversation about everyday life in Russia. I am open to any questions and will happily tell you about the life of an average family in St. Petersburg. I can tell you where we shop, what we eat for breakfast, what our hospitals and schools look like.
