What to expect

Your personal guide meets you at the agreed time in the seaport terminal just after passport control.

The pick-up time we suggest allows skipping the early-morning crowds at passport control and 3 hour driving around the city center waiting until the museums are open.
We will issue you with blanket visas required for easy and quick disembarkation in St. Petersburg.

During your tour you are accompanied by your guide and chauffeur to drive a comfortable car or minivan and take care of the road and parking. All our vehicles are accredited by the port authorities and are able to enter the port area. Please note that no taxi is allowed to the passenger port.

You visit all the museums inside according to the program. The priority access tickets provides you with a quick, skip-the-line entry to the museums. The fee is included in the tour price.

Unlimited bottled water, raincoats and umbrellas are provided for every guest.

Your tour guide is exclusively for your party: ask questions, take photos and seek the best place to have refreshments or lunch – all at your leisure, ensuring a memorable experience. Same about shopping – get an expert advice if you are looking for something special or just skip it if your house is already filled with souvenirs.

After the tour the chauffeur will drive you back to the port. We guarantee that you will be back to the ship on time.

Rachel C. 1 1/2 day private tour of St Petersburg

London, UK. Visited August 2019

1 1/2 day private tour of St Petersburg

From the very first contact via email with St Petersburg guided tours we knew we were in good hands. We hand picked our tour and our every request was met by Valeria putting together our tour just as we had asked,including a ride on the metro taking in some magnificent stations.
Olga, our guide & Dmitry, our driver/guide, were informative, relaxed, so knowledgeable and passionate about their city and heritage. During the initial car tour we were filled with the wonder of their city, the architecture, the history, the beauty of this awesome city. None of our questions were taken lightly, they answered us with passion and detail.
The stunning night time cruise was truly breathtaking- we would recommend a night cruise over the day cruise but try to find a cruiser with tourist information over the speakers- the musician we had on our boat was lovely but we could not really hear Olga talking over the music and we were there primarily to find out about the city!
The following day Olga made ‘Catherine’ come to life at her palace and we loved how she described the magnificence of the Peterhof ground & the history of the fountains. The stunning views over the Baltic were an added bonus.
Dmitry was always one step ahead of us – the car was there as soon as we had visited all our destinations to whisk us off to the next one. We did not queue anywhere- Olga confidently striding into each destination with an air of calm authority!
We cannot express enough how incredible our experience was of St Petersburg and without the input from Olga and Dmitry we would have come away with just the sites as a reminder rather than full of wonder and knowledge.
Thank you all.

MaryAnn. a daytrip to St. Petersburg

Leuven, Belgium. Visited June 2019

a daytrip to St. Petersburg

Everything that did for 1 day is perfect; Valeria really gave me good information about the city, what to see, what to do and how to make it possible. Our guide Sofia and the driver were both very helpful and flexible since we have & passenger in wheelchair; Evrything we need they have it, They picked us up at Cruisport on time, with cold water ready and when it rains they gave raincoat which i find very attentive for the needs of their client; Sofia as guide is excellent (information wise and timetable) Hermitage museum is full with tourists but she manage to arrange our group to be intact and no fuzz at all; i will really use this company next time that we visit St. Petersburg and for sure recommend it to friends who will visit the place;

Csm2329. The best

Wisconsin, USA. Visited in June 2018

The best

Can’t imagine any tour could be better. We were able to see and do so much without feeling rushed. Valeria was fantastic, and having a private car and driver drop us off and pick us up at every stop was a huge plus. We arrived by cruise ship (Viking) and compare to the large group tours organized by the cruise line, we were able to see twice as much for the same or even less cost.

PhilandSus. Exceptional Private Tour

Christchurch, New Zealand. Visited July 2018

Exceptional Private Tour

At short notice I managed to secure a full day St Petersburg private tour for my husband and I. We were just delighted with our guide Valeria..from her warm greeting at the Port, her knowledge of her city and the history to all the little extras like NO waiting in queues at all. Because we didn’t have to stand in line with other tour groups, there was no wasting time and we were able to fit so much into our day. Our car was modern and comfortable and our driver was fantastic…he’d drop us at the door and the 3 of us would scoot in to where we wanted to go…tickets already purchased to present….and after he’d be waiting out front ready to go again!. Valeria took us to her favourite lunch spot..to eat divine fresh bakery items and great coffee. She was so easy to chat to about everyday life in St Petersburg it was a real treat. She asked if we wanted to stop for any souvenir shopping which I did, and we went to a little shop tucked away with the most fabulous selection of Russian dolls and handpainted Christmas decorations along with lots of other interesting souvenirs (very reasonably priced). With limited time in St Petersburg this was the absolute best way to get around and see everything you want to see at your pace (we packed heaps in) and no frustrations that can be encountered even with small tour groups. Valeria was fun and energetic, highly organised and with her excellent English, just a jewel of a tour guide. Highly recommend to anyone who wants a personal and totally engaging tour of St Petersburg. THANKYOU WE WILL BE BACK! X

Hastings, New Zealand. Visited June 2018

Ten Stars out of Five!!!!

I do not hesitate to recommend this tour company!! This is the most amazing company to deal with! Valeria communicated promptly and professionally, dealing with all our queries and requests by email. We saw EVERYTHING we wanted to see in our one day and more. Nadia, our tour guide for the day was wonderful. Patient, so knowledgeable, efficient and professional.Our driver was very efficient and knew where to go and how to get there easily and negotiated the roads very safely. I would totally recommend this tour company if you want to see lots in St Petersburg. They will even buy tickets to performances and get you into the palaces so quickly ( to the top of the queue everytime!!! NO waiting!!) We had the most incredible day!!

Cari K. Amazing Private Tour

California, USA. Visited June 2017

Amazing Private Tour

My husband and I could not have been more pleased with our tour. First we had to contact Valerie so last minute while already traveling in Europe. She was amazing. Communication with us was so fast and she got us visas and made it so simple. She tailored our day exactly how we wanted. Our guide was so sweet and we had so much fun! We are still connected on Instagram! Lena was great. It was our absolute favorite tour and stop of our cruise. I know it was because of who we had with us! You will not be disappointed! You can trust Valerie 100% and will love your tour! And the beauty of the city!
