  • 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%).

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 to visit as many places as possible, that’s why we have included all must-sees which are open on this day.
  • Please, note Catherine palace will be taken out of the program if your cruise ship leaves earlier than 8.00pm. In this case, the price will be reduced by 20 USD per person
