Embark on a 2-day private guided tour of St Petersburg and immerse yourself in the city's many wonders. This multi-day excursion allows you to delve beneath the surface of some top attractions for a more thorough and rewarding experience. Learn the story behind the onion-domed Church on Spilled Blood, marvel at Peterhof's magnificent fountains and see the ongoing restoration of Catherine Palace, largely destroyed during WWII. Cruise along the canals of this 'Venice of the North' and explore both the Hermitage and the city's metro stations: artworks in themselves.
Private tour was great. The Tour Guide Anna met us my Wife and I at the ship terminal walked us to the waiting car and driver Igor and away we went. We saw all the sites plus. It was much better than a shore excursion and about the same price. We did give our tour guide and driver a nice tip, but they were worth it. Tour Guide Anna was very knowledgeable on history and was able to answer any questions we had. We felt safe and welcomed the entire time.
This tour was definitely well worth it. Well organised and interesting, with just the right balance between information, activities and a relaxed pace. Our tour guide, Olga, was very knowledgeable and helpful, even arranging a restaurant booking for us in the evening. Our driver, Alexander, was helpful and friendly. This tour, with its mix of historical, cultural and scenic attractions, is ideal if you have only two days in St Petersburg. Peterhof Gardens, Catherine's Palace and the State Hermitage Museum were all highlights. The Hermitage, in particular, was much more enjoyable as part of a guided tour. There is just so much to see that it was really helpful to have a knowledgeable guide to pick out a few choice rooms and exhibits to focus on. I would highly recommend this tour.

They were punctual and very knowledgable about the history of St. Petersburg.
Well worth the money spent.
I already sent a review last week.
Just perfect: excellent guide, careful driver, comfortable car, no queueing. This tour is simply the best possible way of seeing Saint Petersburg in two days. It was also great value - especially compared with the limited private tours offered by the cruise ships.
Wonderful 2 days with a wonderful guide Katya and driver Genady apologises if spelling of names wrong.
Well worth the money and at a good pace .
Our two day private tour was excellent. The local guides were very courteous and knowledgeable. We had two different tour guides each day and they were both excellent. They were flexible to change the preset itinerary to suit our plans. We would recommend this private tour to all visitors.
Our tour guide Olga and our driver Boris were wonderful. Olga is a top notch pro. She is so knowledgable and a consummate Professional. We wish we could have had her a few more days because there was so much of St. Petersburg that we would have liked to have heard the whole history of from Olga.
This was money well spent. Our guide, Alexis, was very knowledgeable and knew her history inside and out. Andrew our driver was very efficient and the car was very comfortable. My friend and I were there for four days and the 2 day tour was perfect and exactly what we wanted. We would have never been able to figure out how to get to all the places on our own. The crowds this time of year are a nightmare so it was VERY nice not to have to worry about how to buy tickets or how to get to each place. Alexis and Andrew took great car of us. I would highly recommend this tour especially if you only have a few days.
