1. St. Petersburg: Winter Tour with Horse-Drawn Sleigh Ride
You will be met by your guide in the lobby of your hotel and set off to experience the wonders of St. Petersburg in wintertime. Start with a sightseeing tour that will show you the best sites around the city. After having a few panoramic photo-stops you will drive towards one of the largest islands in St. Petersburg, Yelagin Island. Here, you'll get to experience a horse-drawn sleigh ride around the island and see the magnificent Yelagin Palace. The island used to be a Royal residence, but was turned into a public garden during the 20th century. It's sometimes referred to as the Hyde Park of St. Petersburg. After the picturesque horse ride, you will head to the Vodka Museum where you will learn the secrets of vodka’s origins and the way it has entrenched itself as the main alcoholic beverage in Russia. At the end of the tour, you will be offered a selection of vodka flavors and typical Russian appetizers. A car will then return you to your hotel.
