Exquisite St. Petersburg (Visas Included)

Enjoy and discover St. Petersburg in the special full 2-day program. A fluent in English and knowledgeable guide is highly recommended in order to understand fully the richness of the Russian culture. You will visit Peterhof, a capital of the world's most wonderful fountains. As part of a group with never more than 30 cruise guests, you will see this amazing city at its very best.

This 2 full day program is tailored for the cruise ship passenger who wants to see the most famous sites of St. Petersburg in group of 15 - 30 guests. The two day program is planned so that you take a trip to the suburban summer residences of the Russian royal family (Pushkin and Peterhof) on one day and on the other day view Peter and Paul Fortress, St. Issacs, Spilled Blood and The Hermitage Museum.

On the first day the tour returns back to the ship at 5:30 PM (17:30), and on the day of your departure one hour before your ship is scheduled to sail.  All the sites and destinations listed below are either visited inside, having photo stops, or just seen as mentioned separately in each case. The order in which they are visited is not given because 1 day in each week every museum is closed, so we rearrange the order and days so the closed museums or palaces are visited on the other day.

DURATION: 2 Days
Departure time: 09:00 AM

Reviews

This was a fantastic supercharged two-day tour, which exceeded our expectation. Our guide Valeria was fantastic and very skillful at getting us to early viewings so as to beat the crowds. She was very knowledgeable and fluent in English. She had picked up and dropped off at the port, on time, on both days. For once the weather was really kind, as our other visits to St Petersburg have been in the rain! We would definitely do this tour again if the occasion arises. I would highly recommend this excursion to everyone.
