Want to bring home some amazing souvenirs, search out unique gifts, or simply love shopping? This tour is for you and offers some unique shopping experiences in St. Petersburg along Nevsky Prospect, St. Petersburg's main street. It is impossible to get to know the real Russia without getting acquainted with its traditions, folklore, customs, beliefs, and, of course, applied art. Applied arts of Russia accumulate all the abovementioned for the hand-made works produced by traditional masters.

We will pick you up from your ship and you will begin a journey to the best shops in the city. You will visit the store located at the Arts' square (close to the Grand Hotel Europe), a definite highlight and home to a range of paintings created by local Russian artists, together with various souvenirs and craftworks, ATM and money exchange facilities. Our staff speak English. US dollars and major credit cards can be used in the store. You will take great pleasure in shopping for these exclusively Russian works of art and in afterwards presenting your relatives and friends with these souvenirs which will not only take your breath away but also keep the memory about Russia in your hearts for a long time.

Then, put your purchases at your vehicle and walk to the flea market behind the Spilled Blood Cathedral. There is the best shopping for price and selection. Here U.S. dollars are readily accepted and the prices are negotiable.

Visit then Gostiny Dvor, a huge department store, where you can buy such traditional Russian goods as lacquered boxes, jewelry, pins, hand painted nesting dolls, usually called "Matryoshka dolls", china and porcelain and many others. Constructed between 1757 and 1785, Gostiny Dvor has a reputation for being one of the world's first shopping malls and occupies a whole city block on Nevsky Prospekt. At the end of your visit, put all your treasures on your vehicle and return to the ship.

Note that all of our tours in St. Petersburg are operated by authorized guides, and you therefore do not need to secure an independent visa in order to participate in this tour. However, in order to book this tour, you must provide us with full names, dates of birth, nationality, and passport numbers for each tour participant so that our guides can secure the proper tour visas on your behalf. Note also that, if you wish to explore St. Petersburg on your own while not accompanied by one of our guides, you will need to secure an independent visa.

Please be aware that cruise lines occasionally mislead passengers by telling them that they are not allowed to disembark the ship in St. Petersburg unless they are on an excursion purchased through the cruise line. In addition, the cruise lines also sometimes tell passengers that they cannot disembark the ship until the passengers on the cruise lines' excursions have done so first. This is incorrect, and you are free to exit the ship as soon as passengers start to disembark because Russian law states that a cruise ship cannot hold passengers onboard against their will as long as they have the proper documents. In order to clear immigration, you will need to bring along: 1) Your passport; 2) A photocopy of the picture page of your passport; and 3) A copy of your tour tickets. 4) An immigration form passed out to all guests on the ship. We will provide you with your tour tickets as part of the documents we e-mail to you after you make a tour booking.
