What to expect

This private tour is a perfect option to see the most famous attractions of St Petersburg in just one day. Our friendly and experienced guide will show you the most important places in the Northern Capital during a panoramic city tour with photo-stops.
Later, we are going to discover the Park and the Grand Palace of Peterhof - astonishing summer residence of Peter the Great. If time permits, we are going to see the most beautiful subway stations on our way. We will visit the Grand Palace of Peterhof. Our guide will walk you through the historical interiors of different styles and centuries including the Oak Study of Peter the Great - the original decoration of the early 18th century. You will have a guided excursion to the Grand Palace (Petrodvorets), where throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the finest Russian and West European architects worked on the facades and the interior décor.
Once back to St Petersburg, we are going to have a pause for a delicious lunch in a local restaurant. Later, you will have an excursion to the Church of our Savior on the Spilled Blood, representing Russian architectural style. The last activity for the day is an excursion to the Hermitage Museum – a symbol of St Petersburg and a unique museum by the quantity and diversity of the presented art objects.
