Full description
Your private tour guide will meet you in the hall of your hotel with your name on the card, after that you will decide on your program and sights you would like to visit. From now on, you can completely rely on your professional guide and let them take you on a tour to discover the history of St Petersburg.

Tell your guide about the places you wish to see as soon as possible in order to avoid queuing at entrances and to order admissions in advance. Your tour operator will order your tickets in advance so that you will not have to wait in the queue (please, not that price does not include admissions).
