Payment information  

  • A 50% deposit must be paid at the time of reservation. The remaining balance is due upon your arrival to St. Petersburg. In St. Petersburg you can either pay in cash (only Rubles are accepted) or by credit card;
  • After completing your online payment, you will get a payment confirmation.

Cancelation policy

If you or any other member of your party decides to cancel your confirmed booking you must notify us in writing.

Availability and Notes

  • The tour is not available on Monday due to the museum’s operating hours.
  • Please note that the regular tour includes only guide’s service and you should add transfers to/from your hotel if it’s located more than 2 km away from the Hermitage museum.

Tips and Discounts

  • Children (7 - 17 y.o.)/students get 5 USD off the tour price. Students must have an ISIC card, otherwise the discount is not available.
  • 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!
