Shore Excursion. Visas and Skip the Line Tickets Are Provided


The tour combines sightseeing by car and a visit to one of the biggest museums in the world - The Hermitage.

The Hermitage is a really great place for everyone interested in history, the Russian Royal family and/or art.

But it is an enormously huge museum, they say there are about one thousand rooms and several hundred thousand items on display! To get more from a visit to the museum and to fully enjoy it, it's better to have a local professional guide (me! :).

I'll navigate you through this maze of hundreds rooms and myriad art works giving explanations of the most important of them in a friendly light-hearted way.

I can also arrange a visit to The Gold Room or The Staraya Derevnya Restoration and Storage Centre.

On the way to the Hermitage and back to your ship you will see major sights of St Petersburg and we can stop at any of them.

Please do contact me if you have any questions.

NOTE:
The Hermitage is closed on Mondays, but it is still accessible at additional $18 per person.
