Main attractions for one day with a private guide

It's one day tour suitable for tourists who can spend only one day in St. Petersburg. We could see and visit the main attractions in the city center such as Peter and Paul Fortress, the Hermitage, St. Isaac's Cathedral, magnificent Savior on the spilled blood church. We could also have a panoramic view of the downtown and if you are not still worn out have a stroll along the Nevskiy Prospect (the main street of St. Petersburg). In the evening if the weather is fine boat trip is a good option to finish this tour. The tour is flexible. In the itinerary I suggest the list of sights you can choose from. But we usually manage to cover no more than four of them.
YOU DON'T NEED VISAS. I'LL PROVIDE YOU WITH THEM. THEY ARE INCLUDED INTO THE PRICE. The tour should be booked no later than 10 days before the ship arrival. I need time to arrange visas.


We meet at 9. 00 in the port. I will have the sign with your name on.
