The sample program of the tour of St Petersburg from cruise ships is described below. Please note that the real order of visiting sites may be different depending on the entry time scheduled by the Hermitage museum & the date of your stay.
I would rate the cruise tour activity level as moderate, but still be prepared to walk at the Hermitage museum and in Peterhof garden for about 1,5 hours in each place. If you want to make it even more moderate, please let us know in advance.
