Delve into St Petersburg's vast history and culture with a tour through three of its most prominent cathedrals. Start with a visit to 19th-century St Isaac's, easily recognizable by its massive main dome. Marvel at the interior's mosaic icons and walk outside its colonnade for panoramic city views before continuing to The Cathedral of Our Lady of Kazan, a Russian Orthodox church that resembles Rome's St Peter's Basilica. Your last stop is the onion-domed Church on Spilled Blood―home to a lavish shrine commemorating the spot of Alexander II's assassination.

Sergei was an outstanding guide. He was most knowledgeable and a fantastic communicator. Spending time with him greatly enriched our experience in St Petersburg. We would highly recommend a tour with Sergei.

Fantastic tour with a great guide - Elena . Very interesting and informative. Really enjoyed the history of each cathedral and Elena put a personal perspective on the tour by explaining what it was like growing up in Russia and the significance of each cathedral. Highly recommended
A very good tour of three major cathedrals with a couple of other minor stops, by a knowledgeable and informative guide, Sergei, who also gave some insights into life under Communist rule, as well as in current times. Recommended, and ask for Sergei!
