Private Amber Museum and Shopping (Visas Included)

Take full advantage of your time in St. Petersburg on this private excursion, escorted by a very knowledgeable local guide who will take you to the Amber Museum. The founder of the museum spent a quarter of a century on the revival of the famous Amber Room and afterwards founded his own workshop.

The excitement begins with a scenic and panoramic drive from the port to Gostiny Dvor, Saint Petersburg's oldest shopping center and one of the first shopping arcades in the world.

Upon arrival you will make your way to the second floor to visit the Amber Museum, a privately- owned museum opened to the public in October 2018. This gallery contains stunning amber masterpieces of the modern master Alexander Krylov, who for 25 years worked on the restoration of the Amber room located in Catherine's Palace in Pushkin. View an exact replica of this room at a 1/20 scale, then marvel at other unique items such as boxes, eggs, jewelry, icons - even a violin - all made of amber!

Continue through the halls of the block-wide Gostiny Dvor, rubbing elbows with the locals as you browse and shop. With more than 40,000 brands here, there is something for everyone. Conclude your time in a gift shop specializing in quality Russian souvenirs. Nesting Matreshka dolls, Russian vodka, colorful scarves and much more await you, along with friendly, English-speaking staff ready to accept US currency and credit cards.

Enjoy some refreshments, pick up a few souvenirs, then board your vehicle to take your treasures back to your ship. Shop in Russia like a VIP when you book this half-day, exclusive private tour now.

Please Note: 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.
