Full-Day walking tour to Enjoy The Main Attractions and Discover Lesser-Known Sights!


It is a perfect tour for first-time visitors to get acquainted with St. Petersburg, to explore some off the beaten path places, try out local food and/or drink and have a truly Russian experience!

We shall have a leisurely stroll along the main street of Saint Petersburg with a friendly local guide (me!).
You will marvel at gorgeous cathedrals, palaces and numerous beautiful buildings and learn about the Russian history embodied in the city, listening to stories about people who lived here.

As all my tours this one can be customised to meet all your needs (it can be turned into a visa-free tour for cruisers, we can visit any museum, etc. )

For more ideas you could look at my other tours and/or at my credentials.

And don't hesitate to ask me any questions, i'm always glad to hear from you!

Itinerary

I am very keen to include in the tour any specific places you'd like to visit, as it's a private tour, we can alter this on the day.
I will meet your at your hotel (or any place convenient for you), then we will go by public transport or by walking to the first destination - SS Peter and Paul Fortress (the birthplace of the city), then a former port, a very first museum in Russia, St. Isaac's cathedral (the biggest orthodox church in the world) and explore the area around it, the local Parlament, a monument to the founder of Saint Petersburg - Peter The Great, a former ship-yard, a residence of Russian Trars (The Winter palace), the main street of the city, the most picturesque church (Our Saviour on the Spilled Blood) and many other beautiful and historical buildings and must-see places.

We will have lunch at a nice local restaurant.
We will use and explore St Petersburg metro.
We can also visit a local market if you like.
I will accompany you back to your hotel (or any place convenient for you).

A Recent Review of this tour

Pavel is an excellent guide for the first time to St. Petersburg. He came up with the perfect itinerary and was able to accommodate my preferences despite me arriving relatively late into the city. He knows his city well, and showcases it so well. Not to mention, he is quite nice and polite. I felt like I was seeing the city with a friend. Highly recommend him!!
