Famous landmarks from morning till night


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, feel the spirit of Venice of the North, enjoy its wonderful architecture, its rivers and bridges. St. Petersburg is famous for its world known museums and fantastic churches. The Hermitage( former royal palace and art museum), magnificent cathedrals St. Isaack and Savior on the spilled blood, Peter and Paul fortress (former political prison and the burrial place of Romanov's dynasty) and many more interesting sights shouldn't be missed. This city's tour is always exciting, unusual and memorable. The tour is flexible.

A Recent Review of this tour

Margarita was absolutely fantastic. A pleasure to communicate with before the tour, and a great guide. I took a full day tour with her to Peterhof and Catherine Palace. She picked me up and drove. We had more than enough time to stroll the gardens and see inside at Peterhof, get lunch, and see Catherine Palace as well. Margarita's English is pretty much perfect, and her knowledge of history - and, moreover, enthusiasm for the history and culture of her country - made for an absolutely wonderful tour.
