Full description
To say that St. Petersburg is a feast for the eyes is a bit of an understatement. Correction - a huge understatement! This mighty Russian treasure is packed full of glorious architecture and has one of the most imposing cityscapes on Earth. This St. Petersburg city tour takes you on a journey through the all of this and more, from a local perspective. 

Start your St. Petersburg tour from the Palace Square, which is dominated by the Winter Palace. Next, you'll pass the palace where the famous beef stroganoff dish was invented and continue towards St. Isaac’s Square to see its beautiful cathedral. Get the inside scoop behind the stunning architectural flourishes on this gorgeous building, and discover how it has been used over the centuries. You’ll also see the bronze horseman, a symbol of St. Petersburg. 

After crossing the Neva River, you’ll stop at a favorite local spot from which you can enjoy panoramic views of the Palace Embankment, with its renowned Hermitage Museum, and many prominent St. Petersburg landmarks: including St. Isaac’s Cathedral, the Admiralty, and the Chamber of Curiosities.

With your local St. Petersburg guide, you will pay a visit to the oldest structure in the city, and the site where the town of Peter started in 1703. The cathedral located here became the burial place of the Russian emperors and members of their families, from Peter the Great onwards. Discover what lies inside and learn the history behind the oldest fortress in the city. Then, take a ride on the deepest subway in the world together with your guide!

After your subway ride head back to the city center and have lunch in a local café to taste traditional Russian food. After lunch you can continue exploring the city on your own if you wish. Your local guide will give you all the necessary recommendations to make your stay in the city a memorable one.
