What to expect
  • Day 1: St. Petersburg After pickup from your port, begin with a St. Petersburg orientation. See the major sites and historical attractions with a tour around the city center, and enjoy plenty of photo opportunities; entrance fees are included. Visit St. Isaac’s Cathedral with its colossal dome, see the Winter Palace, and marvel at the rich decor of the Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood. Follow your guide inside the Hermitage Museum, one of the world's most prestigious museums, with more than three million works of art. The tour includes the spectacular state and private rooms, with time to grab lunch at one of the nearby cafes. Afterward, hop aboard your canal cruise along the picturesque Nevan River. In the evening, choose to return to your ship or use your extension to see the city after dark. Explore or dine out independently, or sign on for optional evening activities (available for an extra fee), including a visit to the Faberge Museum, a pub crawl, a visit to the ballet, or a guided walking tour. Day 2: St. Petersburg After a morning pickup from the port, venture just beyond the city limits to the delightful, small town of Pushkin. Explore Catherine Palace, admiring the stunning facade and palace grounds. Your tour will visit all the major halls and private rooms, and a particular highlight is the Amber Room. After a break for lunch, take a drive to Peterhof, a seafront palace complex that’s famous for its sprawling gardens and many fountains, built to rival Versailles in France. Peter the Great designed the 300-acre landscape, and you'll stroll through the lower park. Returning to St. Petersburg, go for a ride on the Metro, an attraction in itself, famous for its baroque design. The tour concludes when you’re dropped off at your cruise ship.

A really well organised two day tour. Anna was an absolute gem of a guide with so much knowledge and well supported by Andre the driver. Would highly recommend this tour. With the visits pre-planned there was no waiting in long queues and being part of a small group was really nice.

This was better than i expected
Jul 2019
The tour was great. i forgot the lady's name, but she was very very knowledgeable. I wished we had spent a bit more time at the fountains. that part was a bit rushed. the shops we visited were kool. someone requested a high end shop for souvenirs. they took us there and it was wow. the quality and price there are truly amazing. and u get a free shot or two. i'd recommend this if your time there is short and u want an encompassing feel of this beautiful city.

Beautiful tour of beautiful St. Petersburg!
Sep 2019
I can’t image a better way to have seen St. Petersburg! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly! She did a remarkable job of keeping us on time as well as telling the history and stories of the places we visited. We got so many good photos and memories that will last a life time.

Outstanding Tour
Aug 2019
We were met promptly by our guide Olga at the assigned time and our group (14) left for a wonderful 2 day visit to all of St Petersburg's attractions. Olga always went ahead, picked up the passes and we were admitted without waiting in line (most lines were quite long). Her knowledge of Russian and St Petersburg history was amazing and the small group made it easy for us to ask questions and interact with others in the group. This independent tour is not only less expensive than cruise line offered tours, it offers more without feeling that you are being "herded" from place to place.

Aug 2019 • Couples
From the moment Svetlana picked us up at the cruise terminal until the moment she dropped us off on our second day, we knew we were in capable, knowledgeable and trustworthy care. She packed an incredible amount in 2 days including a beautiful canal cruise but without question I would recommend her tour for the vast amount of knowledge she has amassed over a long career of tours of her city. I have no qualms in recommending this tour and her English is excellent! What a beautiful city!

No need to book via cruise ship despite their warnings for a visa. An independent tour booking works as well! We enjoyed our tour with Tanya. Great guide and wonderful city.

Must Do!
Aug 2019
Took this cruise ship excursion with TJ tour company and they as always, used them in Hawaii as well, were excellent and a lot more less expensive than the ship tour! Do not need a visa if you stay on the tour but ii is alot of walking as my wife has leg problems and it was a little tough keeping up. The guide was so informative. It was chaos getting off the ship the first night but the second day it was a breeze. Acutually, getting through customs was fast. Do not book through the cruise ship but they will warn you not to book through anyone else which is so misleading. I was surprised that the guides did not seem to matter to be tipped with American dollars. For all other purchases I used credit card.
