Discover the Gems of St.Petersburg with a private guide
Would you like to see the tidbits of St. Petersburg visiting a bunch of iconic views of the city, the most famous Cathedrals, one of the greatest Worlds' museum, the unique fountains of Peterhoff and sumptuous Catherine Palace with its famous Amber room? Though it looks quite intensive the tour is not going to be hectic as we will be using skip-the-line entrances to the museums. Besides the itinerary is subject to discuss to be fine-tuned. For example we can add the rivers' and canals' boat trip (individual or join-the-group basis) as the city was supposed to be seen from the point of water. It might be done either in the day or the night time - opening the draw bridges during the night time is really very special and romantic. Or you can feel Russia through its cuisine and the most traditional dishes. Ask me for more options!

Valeria gave us a wonderful two days in St. Petersburg. No waiting in lines and she knew everything. We wanted a canal cruise and she arranged a private little boat for us. Driver was very good and cooperative. She arranged very nice luncheons for us. Hermitage was a pleasure with her. She was able to avoid the masses for the most part. These private tours offer very good value compared to cruise ship excursions. We were a group of 6 and really appreciated the ease and convenience of a private tour.
