The highlights of Saint-Petersburg and surroundings in your private guided tour
What a wonderful idea to get a cruise around The Baltics! One of your stops will be in Saint-Petersburg which offers you kaleidoscope of things to see and to do. Be prepared for rather intensive time and enormous amount of experience. Here is the plan: city tour which includes lots of stops for taking pictures, when you see famous sites connected with history and modern life of Saint-Petersburg and Russia, visit The Hermitage, we visit two summer residences of Russian Royal family outside of the city. Note that Catherine's Palace has a day off on Tuesday and the last day of a month. Grand Palace in Peterhoff is closed on Mondays, but still lots to see there! The Hermitage is closed on Mondays.
Please note that the itinerary is just a suggestion. You can request changes and I will do my best to accommodate any special wishes.

Elena was a wonderful tour guide. Everyone in our family—from five years old to ninety—learned so much about St. Petersburg. Elena's knowledge about the city's political and cultural history seemed inexhaustible. We're so grateful to her for making our visit everything we hoped it would be.
