Availability

  • If your ship is MSC Poesia and Meraviglia arriving on Thursdays, please see our specially developed itinerary.Click here
  • Please ensure to make your booking at least 4-5 days prior to your ship's arrival to St. Petersburg. The port authorities require all passport information in advance; the bookings sent in less than 4 days prior to arrival will be rejected.
  • Accessible for people with mobility issues. Van is not wheelchair accessible (can be arranged at additional cost).

Tips and Discounts:

  • Children (7 - 17 y.o.)/students get 15 USD off the tour price. Students over 17 y.o. 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!
