The Hermitage is one of the world’s most famous museums and does not need a long description. The Hermitage Museum tour is certainly a must-do in all tour itineraries. Being one of the world’s largest museums, the Hermitage has things to offer to people with different interests and requirements. We can easily adjust the tour for your kids and lay a special route through the Hermitage for wheelchair users.

The Winter Palace is definitely a must-see, striking reception rooms and fascinating parlours will give you a good idea of the Imperial times in Russia. Walk the way of the Russian Arc and see it all with your own eyes. The General Staff building is particularly recommended not only because of the Impressionists and Postimpressionists located there, but also due to interesting permanent and temporary exhibitions, such as Memory of Karl Faberge. If time permits, you can visit the Winter Palace of Peter the Great and/or Menshikov Palace.
