St Petersburg private walking tour
Saint-Petersburg walking tour is the most effective way to get acquainted with the city. You will avoid traffic jams and will see hidden gems as well as top sights. During your private half-day walking tour you’ll see all the main attractions of the city, will learn how to use public transport, where to try traditional and inexpensive Russian food, where to go for shopping or boat trips, etc so that you can comfortably explore St Petersburg on your own later.

The walking tour of St Petersburg has 2 options: a basic half-day walking tour that doesn’t include any inside visits to the museums and a full-day walking tour where you can include visits to some of the following museums according to your liking: The Hermitage, St Isaac’s cathedral, the Savior on the Spilled blood or the Peter and Paul fortress. Usually I recommend to include either the Hermitage or the cathedrals.

Obviously comfortable walking shoes are a must. I suggest to check the weather forecast in advance and bring an umbrella with you in necessary – we have lots of rain in St Petersburg.
Yes, but remember about pick pockets – keep all your valuables in a very secure place.
