Tour Details

On this private St. Petersburg tour you will visit The Hermitage Museum, the largest art museum in all Russia and ranking among the most prestigious museums in the world. It was founded by Catherine the Great in 1764 as a private court museum and evolved into the most remarkable collection of art in the world with a total collection of more that 2.7 million works. The tour covers the masterpieces of Western European art. The route includes the State Rooms of the Winter Palace, the collection of Western European art featuring Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Titian and others. There are Dutch and Flemish Art collections, including Rembrandt, Rubens, and Van Dyck, and a collection of Spanish art, second only to Madrid's Prado.

Note that all of our St. Petersburg tours are operated by authorized guides, and you therefore do not need to secure an independent visa in order to participate in this tour. However, in order to book this tour, you must provide us with full names, dates of birth, nationality, and passport numbers for each tour participant so that our guides can secure the proper tour visas on your behalf. Note also that, if you wish to explore St. Petersburg on your own while not accompanied by one of our guides, you will need to secure an independent visa.

Please be aware that cruise lines occasionally mislead passengers by telling them that they are not allowed to disembark the ship in St. Petersburg unless they are on an excursion purchased through the cruise line. In addition, the cruise lines also sometimes tell passengers that they cannot disembark the ship until the passengers on the cruise lines' excursions have done so first. This is incorrect, and you are free to exit the ship as soon as passengers start to disembark because Russian law states that a cruise ship cannot hold passengers onboard against their will as long as they have the proper documents. In order to clear immigration, you will need to bring along: 1) Your passport; 2) A photocopy of the picture page of your passport; and 3) A copy of your tour tickets. We will provide you with your tour tickets as part of the documents we e-mail to you after you make a tour booking.

Reviewer: Sharon F.
Our guide was very knowledgeable. He tailored the tour to our somewhat limited mobility. It was especially good to be able to bypass the lines. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to be able to enjoy the experience at their own pace.
