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.
