All the top highlights of St. Petersburg: Cathedrals, Summer Palaces & Parks, Yusupov Palace, and Hermitage
If you've got 3 days in St. Petersburg, this combined tour is a perfect choice to see and visit all the best sites of the city. It is very rationally organized to let you save time, energy, and money for evening activities, such as ballet, concerts or restaurants (which I can definitely help you to arrange). After these three days you will be a real expert in Russian and European Art, History of the Russian Imperial Family and Aristocracy, Bolshevik Revolution. . . You will visit the most beautiful Imperial Summer Residences not less impressive than those in Europe, and certainly you won't miss the gorgeous Russian Orthodox Cathedrals, each of which has a fascinating and dramatic story hiding under its shining domes. . .

Irina is so good! She managed our group of 10 so well as each had a different agenda. She was able to show us everything we discussed in the time frame that we gave her.
