The best way to see the best of Saint-Petersburg in 2 days


Do you know why your cruise ship stops in Saint Petersburg for 2 days and not 1?
Because in spite the city is much younger than the other capitals of your trip, it was the capital of one of the biggest and strongest empires of Europe.
And Russian emperors borrowing a lot from Europe tried to excel the other capitals in beauty and scale.
And they succeeded!
So to tell you the truth even 2 days is not enough.
But I will do my best to show you the best of Saint Petersburg in 2 days of our tour!

A Recent Review of this tour

We had 2 great days with Vadim!! He was unbelievably knowledgeable about everything in St. Petersburg! He was also very personable and made us feel at home. He had a great vehicle for touring and was comfortable. I would highly recommend Vadim for anyone needing a private tour of St. Pete!!! He have never been disappointed when using TBL and Vadim is one of the best we have had!! So sit back and relax and enjoy Vadim's touring professionalism!! You will not be disappointed!!
