Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Private Tour: St Petersburg City Highlights

See sights such as Winter Palace and the Church on Spilled Blood

Meet your guide at your central St Petersburg hotel at a time that suits you best. Hop inside your private, air-conditioned minivan and set off along the handsome streets as your guide shares interesting historical facts about the sights before you.

As this is a private tour, let your guide know if there’s anywhere you want to spend more time at — your itinerary is flexible and can be tailored to your preferences.

Perhaps start at the Winter Palace, home of the iconic State Hermitage Museum. Admire the baroque façade and hear how Russia’s Empress Catherine II kick started the museum’s art collection to impress guests at her palace.

After snapping photos here, take a pleasant stroll along the stately Nevsky Prospekt – St Petersburg’s busiest boulevard and its answer to Paris’ Champs Elysées.

Stop to view the mighty Peter and Paul Fortress, built by Peter the Great in 1703, and hear sinister tales of how it was used a prison rather than the defence post the great Tsar intended it to be.

Pose for photos outside the extraordinary Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, and marvel at its instantly recognizable onion-shaped domes.

Hear how the church marks the site of the assassination of Tsar Alexander II in 1881, and perhaps compare its eye-popping architecture with the simpler, gold dome atop the nearby St Isaac’s Cathedral.

After exploring St Petersburg’s landmarks for three hours, your tour finishes with a drop-off at your hotel. Before parting ways with your guide, perhaps ask for insider tips on other places to visit during your time in the city.
