Premium Saint Petersburg Small Group Tour

Shore Excursions
All-inclusive 2-day shore excursion for active visitors.

Is it possible to see all the main St. Petersburg highlights in just 2 days? Is it possible to add food tasting and such activities as a canal boat ride or a metro trip? Is it possible not to spend a fortune for such a tour?– Yes! The answer is our 2 day Premium small group tour in St. Petersburg. And although your two-day stop-over is not made of rubber, Premium small group tour includes as much as possible in but such a short stay. The active pace might seem a race across St. Pete, but it’s rather a journey through the history and architecture of our city. Your local tour guide will show Russia’s rich historical tapestry and comment on present-day life and recent events of the contemporary history. One more advantage is the price: in a small group tour (shared tour) the price is much lower then in a private tour.

We provide Premium tour in St. Petersburg to Baltic cruise passengers on a visa-free basis.
