Visa-free city drive private tour with visits to the top museums in 10 hours

Do you want a "classical" private tour around Saint Petersburg and visit all the must-see museums? Are you interested in the city history and local life? You stay in the city just for a couple of days or travel on a cruise ship and need a visa-free tour? If so, then this tour is designed for you!
I offer you a 10-hour tour in a comfortable car/van, with photo stops in the most picturesque areas.
The itinerary is flexible and discussable.

Saint Petersburg is full of culture and history. Despite all the tragedies and losses it suffered, the city preserves its culture, beauty, the strength of spirit and unique atmosphere that attracts millions of people from all over the world.

* Please, mind the closing days:
- The Hermitage is not available on Monday;
- The Church on the Spilled Blood/St. Isaac's Cathedral not available on Wednesday.

*Upon your request, the museums offered can be replaced with another (Catherine's Palace, Faberge museum etc. ). This way the schedule will be more flexible.


- Meeting at the hotel/at the port
- City drive tour (with photo stops)
- Peter and Paul Fotress+Cathedral (guided tour)
- Church on the Spilled Blood (guided tour)
- Time for lunch

- St. Isaac's Cathedral (guided tour)
- Metro ride - 'the museum underground' (if wanted)

* If you have any special places in the historical part of the city you want to see/visit, I will do my best to find time for that (to visit a practising church, a local restaurant, souvenir shop etc. ).

A Recent Review of this tour

Tatiana could not have been more helpful when organising our visit to St Petersburg and really helped us get the most out of it. Would recommend her (and Svetlana, who drove) to anyone interested in packing in as much history as they can during a short visit to the city.
