 Note, please:

  • If you travel with children up to 6 years old, you don’t have to pay for them - the tour for them will be free of charge
  • Children/Students from 7 years old receive a discount of $25 US for the tour. Students must have a valid ISIC Card – Please, let us know about students in your group in advance so that we can reserve the right tickets for them
  • If the hydrofoil ride is cancelled due to the unfavorable weather conditions it is not refunded: we use our van instead to get to/from Peterhof
  • Gratuities to the guide and driver are not included in the tour price. The sum you wish to give to your guide and driver after a well-done tour should be up to the western standards (approximately 15%). It is a good idea to divide gratuity between your guide and driver and give it separately to them: 10% to the guide and 5% to the driver. Please have some cash with you (USD, EUR or RUB) for this reason, but it is always up to you!
  • We have created our 1 day program taking into consideration that you have got just 1 day to spend in our city, but would like you to visit as many places as possible and combine it with some children activities.
  • The tour is available from the ships staying in St. Petersburg for one day. If you would like to book one-day tour from the 2-day or 3-day ship please contact us to get further details
  • The order of museum visits may change depending on availability of entrance tickets, museums days-off, traffic situation in the city. Museums also reserve the right to shift an entrance time on a very short notice, but you will still visit all the venues listed on the itinerary.
