2-day private Visa-Free tour of St.Petersburg for cruise ship passengers


I have created an ideal combination of general sightseeing and Jewish Heritage tour. Within two days we will visit major museums and palaces of St. Petersburg and its surrounding area. Of course we will visit the Grand Choral Synagogue and drive or may be even walk along the former Jewish neighborhood Kolomna. But the most important is that wherever we go, whatever we visit there is also some Jewish prospective which adds an incredible value to any site of St. Petersburg. St. Petersburg Jewish history is a history of successful businessmen, artists and sculptors, philosophers and revolutioners, members of the government and refuzniks. We will touch all related subjects - Jews during the Imperial era, Jews in the revolution, Jews in Soviet Union and finally Jews today.
The tour is visa-free, so you don't need to obtain your own Russian visa - I will take care of all formalities and paperwork.
Every museum we visit we have prearranged vouchers to bypass the line at the entrance.
