8 Hour 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

We did a 17km walk around the city with our guide Pavel and it was perfect. Pavel showed us so many insights of St.Peterburg and had a very nice choice of Sighseeing Spots at hand for us. He always offered a few options so we had a choice of the routing. Along the way he knew alot of details and stories to every Place, Church and Street. Pavel has also demonstrated a profound knowledge of the history of his city and country. After 8 hours, 21000 steps, multiple Metro Rides he guided us back to our hotel.
