1 Day Flexible Tour For Cruisers!


It is a perfect tour for first-time visitors to get acquainted with St. Petersburg, to explore some off the beaten path places, try out local food and/or drink and have a truly Russian experience!

On this private walking tour you will see much more than on large group bus tours run by cruise lines. Contrary to them you will have a first-hand local experience :)

You will explore all main attractions of Saint Petersburg at your own pace. We will use our effective public transportation (metro, buses, trams, ets. ) and taxi - all included in the tour price.

To be able to provide you tour tickets for disembarkation i'll need to have scans of your passports.
The tour tickets are usually ready within 2 weeks. They should be printed out and shown at Russian border control.

Don't hesitate to ask me any questions, i'm always glad to hear from you!
