All the best of Saint-Petersburg in one day


During one full day you will visit all famous and the most beautiful places in Saint-Petersburg. We will start with a city tour and I'll show you best placces to take great pictures.
We will visit with you the place our city started from - Peter and Paul Fortress and a cathedral inside the fortress - a burial place of all Russian tzars starting from Peter the Great.
We will visit the most famous cathedrals not only in St Petersburg but in Russia - St Isaak Cathedral and Savior on the Spilled Blood Church - a unique place where all walls inside are covered with 7000 sq. meters of mosaics. If the weather will allow us, we can go up to a colonnade of St Isaak Cathedral, over 40 meters above the city!
After lunch we will visit our State Hermitage museum. Its not only the Winter Palace - the official residence of Romanov family, but also incredible art gallery which can be compared only with the Louvre. I'll pre-book tickets not to waste time in long lines.
That day will be one of the best days of your tour.

A Recent Review of this tour

Olga is a superb guide. She is knowledgeable and personable and very hardworking. She went above and beyond on an all day tour of St. Petersburg. I have taken many Tours by Locals tours. However, I rate Olga at the very top of the list. She is passionate about her city, and her deep knowledge of history and art and culture is exceptional. I highly recommend her. May you be so fortunate as to get her for a guide.
