This documentation is required to apply for a Russian Visa. 72 h free visa access is only available, if you arrive to St. Petersburg on a cruise ship/ferry.

Payment information  

  • A 20% 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

  • Price is calculated for guests staying at a hotel/apartment
  • The tour is not available on Wednesday due to the museums’ operating hours.

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!

Your introduction tour will start with a panoramic drive through the city center and its heart – Nevsky prospect. It’s one the oldest streets in the city that displays legendary buildings, including Gostiny Dvor (Merchant’s yard), Singer’s building, Hotel Europe, Elisseeff Emporium etc. Then you will cross the Palace Bridge and enjoy one the best panoramic spots over the Hermitage museum and the Palace embankment. The tour will proceed to the very first construction in the city – Peter-and-Paul's Fortress. Inside you will see Peter-and-Paul's Cathedral that served as a burial place for the Russian royalty, and take a walk around the island to see all the highlights. Next, you will head towards the Church on the Spilled Blood to admire the beautiful mosaic panels covering the inside and outside walls. This design is as unique as the history of this church, which you will hear during your inside visit. Your city tour will include other photo stops as you drive towards St. Nicolas Cathedral, where you will still see the 18th century baroque interiors and some of the oldest icons in the city. Upon request you can also visit St. Isaac’s Cathedral, the second largest cathedral in Russia.**
