“Lita our guide was fantastic - provided not just the facts but also glimpses of everyday life. She was very happy to answer our questions. We were a small group (6) and she tailored it to suit all. We ended up extending to the Grand Tour which was a great introduction to St Petersburg and vital if you are going to get past the huge crowds we found everywhere. ...Andrew Johnson J., Australia – See more reviews
What To Expect
Get the leisure and comfort of a chauffeured car while taking in the sights of Saint-Petersburg. Drive along the "Great Perspective," known today as the Nevsky Prospect, and lined with the marble palaces of Russian royalty and aristocracy. See the most fashionable boutiques and art salons set in the style of the 18th century, various trading rows and arcades, and impressive classical and Renaissance cathedrals. Get an excellent picture opportunity of a stunning panorama along the Neva's embankments. By the city's Rostral Columns you will have a view of the 5 buildings of the State Hermitage Museum, and see the Admiralty and St. Isaac's Cathedral.
Enjoy the beauty of the third largest square in the world - the Palace Square with the Winter Palace and the Alexander Column.

Get to visit the Peter and Paul Fortress, which is the oldest structure in Saint-Petersburg. The Peter and Paul Fortress was erected for fortification purposes, but was used as a political prison. The Peter and Paul Cathedral is a unique sample of Russian 18th-century architecture. It served as a burial-place for Russian emperors for almost two centuries. The last Russian Tsar, Nicholas II, and his family were buried in the cathedral's small St. Catherine Chapel in 1998.
