During this one day program…

We have made up a program for active travelers who would like to see the main highlights of St. Petersburg and Moscow. This tour involves a lot of walking so we would recommend it for experienced travelers who prefer to explore new places mainly on foot. By eliminating a vehicle service on the second day of the tour we managed to make this tour more affordable.

Here is the shore program for cruise ship passengers:
