Standard Tour Itineraries

Price: 245USD per person per day

Please let me make a couple of points about my standard itineraries.

  • If you start the day from the city tour EVERY scenic place will be packed with buses - since ALL companies start from it. With me you will enjoy the great sites without crowds.

  • I do not start programs with a transfer to Pushkin or Peterhof as it is about a 1½ hour trip. In the beginning of the day it is just boring, but in the middle - after you have already been walking and sight-seeing for few hours it will provide a well needed rest, so your are refreshed for the next stage of the tour.

  • These standard programs can be changed in any way to meet your personal requirements. However the daily rate of a customized tour - depending on the inclusions - will come to 300-400USD per person against 245USD for a standard one.

Standard tour - Two Day Itinerary

Day 1

Walking tour along the main street Nevsky prospect - mixing with locals and seeing the astonishing buildings of the former Russian capital (a visit to Kazan cathedral during morning service included).

11.00 - 13.30

Hermitage tour

I can do about 10 different specialized tours around this place, so can not only guide you around the museum, but to pick from its endless highlights those which will be most exciting for you.

13.30 - 14.30

Lunch

If we succeed to cut down time on it, I will be only too happy. But realistically only McDonalds allows a shorter lunch.

14.30 - 15.30

Transfer to Catherine palace. After several hours of sight-seeing you may even appreciate the rest that the journey affords.

15.30 - 17.00

Transfer back to the city center, stopping enroute at a regular supermarket where the average citizens shop or farmers market.

By that time the majority of tours will be finished, so no one will spoil the pleasure for us.

Note: No lunch is planned on day 2. You can grab an ice-cream in Peterhof fountain park. The only chance to have quick lunch is to skip the subway tour.
