WHAT TO EXPECT
Your customized day tour of St Petersburg will be tailored to your preferences. Use fast track admission to skip the line and enjoy your knowledgeable guide's narration about the city and its brightest landmarks.
Your tour will start in the hall of your hotel, where your private guide will greet you holding a sign with your name on it. You may either follow your tour schedule right away or express your sightseeing preferences to your guide and start exploring the city by car. You will be provided with a modern, comfortable, non-smoking, air-conditioned vehicle, the type of which depends on the number of people participating in the tour.
Most likely you are going to experience a panoramic tour visiting notable highlights such as Peter and Paul Fortress, St Isaac's Cathedral and the Church on Spilled Blood. It is strongly recommended you visit one of the following 'must see' sights - Hermitage, Yusupov palace, Russian Museum, Faberge Museum, Alexander-Nevsky Lavra, River and Canal tour and others.
If you want to visit one or two Imperial residences (Grand Palace of Peterhof and the Lower Gardens; Catherine Palace and its premises; Pavlovsk Palace and the park; Gatchina Castle) it is better to dedicate the entire day to such an adventure as all of these palaces and castles are located on the city's outskirts. You are free to spend as much time as you want in one place and then proceed to another one.
After the tour your guide and driver will transfer you back to your hotel.
