Full description
This Full-Day tour of St. Petersburg offers visitors the opportunity to take in as much as possible of the city in a day's sightseeing, from the comfort of a car or minivan and with a knowledgeable and experienced guide. At 10:00 AM, your guide will come to your hotel lobby area or any other indicated address to begin the tour from there. There also will be a driver waiting at your hotel entrance. During this tour, visit the most picturesque areas of St. Petersburg where you will be able to make multiple photo stops at your request, while engaging in entertaining and informative discussion about the city's history and present-day life. At 11:00 AM, stop at the Peter and Paul Fortress, a symbol of St.Petersburg and one of the few remaining fortresses of the 18th century, the burial place of Russian emperors, as well as a former political prison of Russia. It was the one the history of St. Petersburg began with. Then, visit the Church of Savior on Spilled Blood, one of St. Petersburg's most memorable landmarks.  Then, take a lunch break and taste the local cuisine. Enjoy a special 3 course meal before heading to St. Isaac's Cathedral at 2:30 PM. Here, climb up the 300 or so steps to the observation walkway at the base of the cathedral's dome and enjoy the breathtaking views over the city. Afterwards, spend more time with your guide exploring the historic centre of St Petersburg before being taken back to your hotel or place of preference at 5:00 PM.
