2 day city tour
During this private 2 day-tour you will see the must-see places in St Petersburg and will visit one of the summer residences of your choice – Peterhof or the Catherine palace. We can move around py private car or by public transport to cut costs and give you a feeling of everyday life.
The first day is dedicated to sightseeing in the city center and you will have a city tour. Also we will visit the most famous attractions – the Hermitage museum, St Isaac’s cathedral and the Savior on the Spilled blood church. We will walk along the elegant Nevsky prospect – the main street of St Petersburg – finding small of the beaten track monuments along the way, will try local food and will see some of the most beautiful metro stations.
On the second day we make a day-trip to one of the former summer residences of Russian tsars. You can choose between a visit to the Catherine palace with its breath-taking Amber room or the unbelievable fountain park in Peterhof. Please e-mail us at email@example.com if you want to include both places into the tour. In the afternoon we will visit the Peter and Paul fortress and its cathedral – the burial place of Peter the Great, Catherine the Great and Nicholas II.
Please note that we include a visit to the fountain park in Peterhof from May to October (it’s the main attraction) and we visit the Grand palace in Peterhof from November to April as the fountains are not functioning during that period. However, if you are coming in winter, I would recommend to go to the Catherine palace as its interiors are more impressive. The fountain park in Peterhof is a top choice in summer though.
