2 Day Saint Petersburg Highlights, Feel Like a Local (Visas Included)

St. Petersburg was the imperial capital for 2 centuries, founded in 1703 by Peter the Great, subject of the city's iconic "Bronze Horseman" statue. Today, it remains Russia's cultural center with a multitude of iconic venues.

Throughout this tour your local, knowledgeable guide will take you to some of the city's major attractions and landmarks as well as less celebrated areas that will give you a deeper understanding of the history and culture of this vibrant city. Your city tour will also include photo stops along the way for excellent opportunities to capture the many landmarks.

Your excursion into St. Petersburg begins with a boat tour exploring rivers and channels of the Northern Venice. Head to the Hermitage, a former residential Winter Palace of the Romanov rulers that today houses one of the world's most prestigious museums. You will explore the Palace and view artworks from the masters including DaVinci and Rembrandt hanging on the walls of the Hermitage display rooms.

At Peterhoff Fountain Gardens you will take a stroll around the park grounds dotted with fountains and charming pavilions. This place served as the summer residence for the Tsar and is reminiscent of France's Versailles. A walk down Nevsky Prospect, St. Petersburg's central avenue, is like a walk through the history books as you are flanked by the huge neoclassical Kazan Cathedral, the Art Nouveau Bookhouse, several 18th-century churches, a monument to Catherine the Great, the Russian National Library, the Anichkov Bridge with its horse statues, the Singer House and more.

Stop for photos of the colorful onion domes on the Church of the Savior on the Spilled Blood, built on the site of the 1881 assassination (spilled blood) of Tsar Alexander II, then go inside to view colorful religious mosaics. You will also visit one of the landmarks of the city, the Elisseev Emporium; this large retail and entertainment complex was constructed in 1903 for the ambitious Elisseev Brothers and is a must-see when in the city.

During the tour you will take the infamous Subway whose stations are fondly referred to as the "palaces" of the Soviet Union. No visit to St. Petersburg would be complete without a visit to the downtown local market with its beautiful architecture, exotic atmosphere and colorful locals.

A very thorough tour of the city in a very limited time. Our Tour guide was excellent. My favorite were the Hermitage and the Subway.

5 Stars2-Day St Petersburg Tour was Incredible!June 29, 2019

Reviewer: Ellaline Clarke
This tour was absolutely amazing and our tour guide, Olena, was fantastic! It was the best tour we have ever taken because we saw so many wonderful sites- a city tour, Peterhof Gardens, Hermitage, The Church of the Saviour on the Spilled Blood, etc., & even a ride on the beautiful subway...but it also included plenty of time for a little shopping, rest time, and a lunch break as well. Olena was very professional, friendly, helpful, & extremely knowledgeable. It was a long tour but fascinating, fun, & relaxing...and worth every penny we paid. It really was incredible! I highly recommend it!

We were over the moon when we realised that our shore excursion was organised with a single tour guide! So my husband and I had our own driver guide and BMW car. This eliminated queuing and we were able to get one to one experience. Our guide's extensive knowledge was second to one - excellent! Thoroughly recommend St Petersburg and Shore excursions. Thank you.
