St Petersburg Discovery

Meet your guide in Palace Square and take in views of the Winter Palace. Pass the spot where the Beef Stroganoff dish was invented and continue toward the impressive cathedral in St. Isaac’s Square. Learn about the structure's many uses over the centuries and its architectural flourishes, and see the symbol of St. Petersburg: the bronze horseman.

Cross the Neva River and stop for panoramic views of the Palace Embankment. See the Hermitage Museum, the Chamber of Curiosities, St. Isaac’s Cathedral, and the Admiralty.

Next, follow your guide to the oldest structure in the city, and the site where the town of Peter started in 1703. Opt to take a look inside the cathedral, the burial place of Russian emperors.

Continue past the Field of Mars and the Summer Gardens to the most famous church in town, built where the Russian emperor Alexander II was assassinated in 1881.

Then stroll along Nevsky Prospect, bustling with restaurants, theaters, museums, and ornate palaces of the ex-Russian aristocracy, and learn the history behind the area as you go.

Afterward, make your last stop at a traditional Russian cafe to try traditional dishes such as Beef Stroganoff, borsch (soup), or blinis (pancakes). Your walking tour will end here.

Kate was an amazing guide, very friendly and considerate esp because i was carrying a sleeping 2 year old toddler while it snows and walking around town. This was a very nice tour and we learned a lot.

This was the best day ever. First time in St. Petes and this tour made me want to come back. Anastasia was an amazing tour guide. She was so knowledgeable about her city and the passion she has is contagious. I got to see all the highlights of the city and made some friends along the way. I was so impressed with Urban Adventures that I signed up for their evening off the beaten path tour. And Anastasia was the tour guide again. This tour is a must for anyone looking to learn about the weird or not so touristic part of St Petes. Anastasia does not disappoint. I can not wait to visit again.

The two of us were so lucky to have had Maria to ourselves for a very interesting and enjoyable 3 hours of walking discovering St Petersburg followed by a local meal in a pub we would never have found on our own.

We did the morning walking tour with Anastasia and loved it! Anastasia was kind, funny and knowledgable. The tour was a great introduction to st Petersburg, topped off with a delicious meal at a local resturaunt.
We enjoyed this tour so much we ended up doing the evening walking tour as well.

Marie was a most delightful guide, cheery and enthusiastic. She was quite knowledgeable and obviously loves her city. Her English is excellent. While the weather was foul, she came prepared with extra umbrellas.

Maria is a very knowledgeable, friendly guide. 5people were part of this Walking tour which included a local lunch. We could not have asked for a better guide. We were delayed leaving the ship as shuttle would not run until it was full. We missed the beginning but she came to get us. Well worth it!

This ended up being a one-on-one tour, and we changed the route because it started raining and I got a partial subway tour which was an added bonus. My tour guide, Anastasia, was very knowledgeable and take pleasure in pointing out the little things that most people wouldn't notice and it really gave a sense of the long history of this amazing city. And I bet if I wanted to take this tour again, she could take me on a whole different tour that would be just as interesting.

This was a fabulous way to see St Petersburg and get our bearings on our first day. Anastasia was a bright, cheerful and very friendly guide with an excellent knowledge of the city. She kept our interest and attention on a very chilly day approx-14degrees celsius! .
Would definitely recommend!

Our private walking tour with Igor was outstanding. Both friendly and extremely knowledgeable, he shared information with us as we walked. He also tailored the length of the walk to our abilities, yet still managed to cover everything. This is an excellent introduction to the city and its history. When we were finished, we really felt we had a good sense of the city and were comfortable exploring it further on our own. Thank you!
