Description

This is a historical St. Petersburg tour with a twist - instead of stopping off at St. Petersburg's many, many monuments, you'll go on a journey with new friends to the city's weirder sights to give you a healthy dose of real local life. After all, how often to you visit the famous landmarks in your own city? Join a local guide to see what makes St. Petersburg tick for the people that live there.

We begin this St. Petersburg tour at the information booth on the Palace Square and continue along St. Petersburg's busiest street, Nevsky Prospect, home to restaurants, theaters and museums. All along here, you'll find Russian history side-by-side with the modern life of local youth – and with a St. Petersburg citizen by your side, you'll really feel the local life.

Then, you will head toward the Vladimirskaya metro station. Here, you can see a monument to the famous Russian writer Dostoevsky who lived and worked in one of the houses nearby.

Trip down into the metro where you'll see the oldest rail line with its most unusual interior. Your guide will show you some secrets of the metro and will explain why St. Petersburg's system is so much more than just public transport. From there, continue to the Vitebsky railway station, one of the most beautiful places in St. Petersburg and constructed in the same style as the Eiffel Tower.

Before ending your tour, you'll visit a local bar for a taste of the good stuff! Enjoy a shot of chilled vodka in a Soviet-style room washed down with an array of classic Russian vodka chasers.
