What to expect

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

We will issue you with blanket visas required for easy and quick disembarkation in St. Petersburg. 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.

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 to enter the port area. Please note that no taxi is allowed to enter 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 choose 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.

LCL-travels. Outstanding 2-Day Customized Tour

Chicago, USA. Visited August 2019

Outstanding 2-Day Customized Tour

Valeria was a pleasure to work with online as I planned our two-day custom tour. She provided us with two slightly different itinerary options. And when I considered eliminating visiting the Peterhof fountains and gardens, she suggested that we should not miss going there. Of course, she was correct.

Our tour guide Daria was extremely knowledgeable and professional. When I found the Hermitage crowds to be overwhelming, Daria suggested we relax at a nearby restaurant until our next planned activity, which was a canal boat tour. That was a perfect suggestion. She provided us with extensive historical background about the places we visited.

For a personalized, customized tour, I highly recommend St. Petersburg Guided Tours.

2 day private package of St. Petersburg

It was easy to book with this company. Not only did they make our day time itinerary happen, they also found us tickets for a ballet in the evening that we were there. The seats were perfect and for much less money than i was able to find on my own.

Now to our guide- Zara!!! She was amazing. She was informative, vibrant, smart and personable. She had the day completely planned out and knew how to move through the crowds. She knew the insides of these places and how to find the best pictures, get to the most popular areas and do it with ease. She had information about everything!!! She really made our trip to Russia one to remember. We packed in both the days and the first day we decided to have her take us to find lunch. It was not a tourist filled place, but a place the locals go. She helped us order and did not disappoint.

Day 1, my son was sick. She took us to a pharmacy and got him all set up with medicine- he was better the next day. I am sure it was due to the magic of Zara.

Do yourself a favor and see if you can book with her being your guide. Michael, our driver was another part of this team. He always seemed to be right where we needed him at exactly the right time. He waited for us outside the theater at the night ballet. Really a great team!!!!

San Diego, California. Visited August 2019

Fabulous Private 2 Day Tour!!!

“St. Petersburg Guided Tours” provide fantastic customer service with a 5 STAR guide & driver. All questions, prior to trip were answered right away by Valeria via email. We wanted a 2 day customized PRIVATE TOUR for 4 people, including seeing the Grand Choral Synagogue. Valeria was so accommodating in providing exactly what we requested PLUS a fantastic guide, DARIA & great driver, Andrew. These 2 are the best team. We never had to wait in a line, ever! We saw other tour guided waiting in long lines with their tour groups. Daria, was like royalty and got us in right away. In additon, she stayed with us the whole time and explained everything thoroughly, and never appeared disinterested. Andrew always had his Merecedes Van waiting for us when we finished a site. In addition, St. Petersburg Guided Tours provided us the Best Price and I researched multiple Tour Companies. 3 other tour companies did not provide the customer service, price or tour itinerary we wanted. Our first day in St. Petersburg was a 12 hour day, since we wanted to see many sites and do a canal ride. We got to see all sites on list. Did not go to tourist traps that other tour compaines go to. We wanted a quick lunch: Daria did this. Before returning to cruise ship, Andrew stopped at a hotel so our friend could use the WC. So accommodating! Day 2: tour 9:00 am-4:45 pm to be back on the ship by 5:30 pm. We saw everything on wish list with perfect representatives!! Daria, Andrew and Valeria, you were wonderful!

 Afaircop. Our best tour ever – highly recommended

Guildford, UK. Visited July 2019

Our best tour ever – highly recommended

We had such a great time – we would love to do it all again.
We requested for a two day custom tour . Valeria arranged advance skip the q tickets and also the visas. We also left the ship at a leisurely 8.30 whereas the coach tours left at 6.45 am!
on the first day we met Valeria at the port and then we toured st petersburg by private van and visited the Peter and Paul Fortress, the Cathedral of the saviour of the spilled blood, an exquisite gift shop, had lunch in a traditional pie shop and then went to a Matryoshka workshop to learn to paint our own Russian dolls and then on to the hermitage museum for a grande finale to the day.
Day 2 we travelled on the metro and saw the opulence of the stations then went on to the Catherine Palace as we especially wanted to see the amber room. After lunching locally we went to see the fountain gardens at Peterhof.
Throughout our tours Valeria amazed us with the history of St Petersburg and the sites we visited – she was extremely knowledgeable and told us many anecdotes and witty stories which brought the history of the sites to life. We really felt immersed in St Petersburg and its history and enjoyed every moment
The tour was excellent value (especially compared to the ship tours ) and was perfect for our family.
Thank-you so much to Valeria and our driver Andrew we hope we can come back and see more.

We made the right choice

Our family of 5 (3 tennage boys) did a two day tour and it was amazing. Setting up the tour was very easy, we customized the places we wanted to see and the duration of each visit in advance. The van was very comfortable, the driver was excellent and was able to find close parking everywhere we went. The tour guides were some of the best we have ever had. Very knowledgeable about no only the sites, but also about Russian culture. This was by far are favorite stop on the Baltic Cruise. In comparing notes with other cruise passengers, our tour was simply better than most. We avoided the lines, had VIP access to places and got to see the things we wanted. Thank you for the great experience.

Joan. Fabulous St. Petersburg Visit During Baltic Cruise

San Bernardino, California. Visited May 2019

Fabulous St. Petersburg Visit During Baltic Cruise

We visited as part of a Princess Cruises Baltic Cruise. After reading rave reviews of ToursinStPetersburg.com, I contacted them by email and was pleased with the response and suggested 2 day tours. During several discussions, Valeria offered a tour that covered the sights we were interested in, as well as some that she thought were important. There were 6 retirees in our party. We were met at the port by Nadia, who was an excellent tour guide with a delightful personality. She had been an exchange student in the US so was especially good with our American English. The van driver, Michael, was superb, managing to park immediately near the sights, and to get pick-up locations so our walking was minimal. We visited the Church of the Spilled Blood, St.. Isaacs, the Faberge Museum and the Hermitage on day 1, then drove to the Catherine Palace and Peterhof Garden with a brief shopping stop on day 2. Nadia suggested lunches in lovely local restaurants which offered great food and atmosphere. We felt secure the entire time of our visit. Valeria, the company owner, made a point of meeting us in person to thank us for the reservation. The prices for our private, customized tour was just over half the cost of the ship’s offerings. I heartily recommend St. Petersburg Guided Tours.

Peter Sammons. Outstanding

Derby, England. Visited August 2018


If you want to see St Petersburg from a cruise ship and have only 2 days then the people to contact are St, Petersburg Guided Tours. We had 2 days full of information, we saw all the sites and travelled on the Metro (London tube needs to learn). From our first contact via email with Valeria who put our tour together, who arranged our 2 day visas, to meeting Nadia our guide and our driver Dmitri everything went like clockwork. Nadia was a mine of information especially in the Hermitage Museum. The price we paid was far less than the same type of tour organised by the ship and we had the benefit of one to one, not mixed in a group trying to hear the guide. At all sites that admission charges were required Nadia went of to get the tickets and then said follow me and walked us to the front of the queue, we never had to wait. We had lunch breaks both days , we had said we only required a snack and they took us to small fast food cafes which was ideal (we paid for both their meals). Would we go to St.Petersburg again, definitely, and we would certainly use St.Petersburg Guided Tours, Excellent.

We took a two-day tour with St. Petersburg Guided Tours. They procured our group visa, met us at the cruise ship and took us to all of the major attractions in St. Petersburg. We avoided all of the lines at the Hermitage, the two palaces, and the major churches. Some of the lines were two-three hours in length so it was a real benefit to be with a small group. The guide, Nadia, was extremely knowledgeable, spoke perfect English and tailored our tour to our group’s (5 of us) needs. Our driver, Michael, was terrific and always found parking close to the attractions. I highly recommend this organization.

We booked our family tour in advance and the team were very helpful in answering any questions we had about St Petersburg, our visas and were very accommodating to adjust the itinerary for additional and extra things we wanted to do/see. Daina our guide was exceptional and went above and beyond to help us sort out an issue when we had trouble at the border crossing from our cruise

She was really wonderful and gave us a lot of interesting information about St.Petersburg, she also walked and took the tour at our pace as we had some elderly family members that were a bit slower. We went to many different palaces in our two day tour and enjoyed all of them. She took us to nice local restaurants for lunch and dinner exposing us to Russi culture! All in all we enjoyed our tour very much and I would highly recommend them!

Rena3207. Stunning!

Port Phillip, Australia. Visited June 2018


I visited Russia with a negative, if as it turned out, a somewhat uninformed view of Russia and as a result a low expectation of our Baltic cruise stop in St Petersburg; well, what a surprise that turned out to be, absolutely stunning!
We booked through St Petersburg Guided Tours and was lucky enough to have Valerie (Valaria) organize, reorganize and then lead our small group of 4. She has patience, perfect English, a genius for context and for painting the picture that gives such colour and realism to the visual experience.
St Petersburg is a seriously great experience. I’ve drawn the deep breath at the Pyramids and the Sphinx, the Terracotta Warriors, Angkor Wat and the Forbidden City etc. I can assure you St Petersburg resides in the top three. The Hermitage, Peterhof Fountain Park and Grottos and the Yusupov Palace plus much more just dashed my preconceptions.
Our 2 day private tour for 4 with Valarie turned out to be a steep discount to even the elite class of 16 from the ship.
Strongly recommend both the city and St Petersburg Guided tours.

GregB48. Excellent tour guide with great ethics

Brisbane, Australia. Visited June 2018

Excellent tour guide with great ethics

Very high recommendation:
We found St. Petersburg Guided Tours online.
They seemed to offer what we wanted. We were first time visitors to St Petersburg and we wanted both flexibility and advice on what to see and in what order.
Our first contact was answered by Valeria. It was obvious that she spoke English very well. All my questions were answered. The price was not cheap but it was reasonable. We didn’t realise all the value included until later.
Our cruise line and our travel agent stressed that we could have a big problem arriving without a visa to do an independent tour. They said you must book the ships tour or you could miss seeing St Petersburg and have to stay on the ship. (completely false)
Valeria assured us that she would arrange a short visit visa under the St Petersburg visa-free arrangements for cruise ship passengers that require us to be with the guide at all times. We sent her our passport information and she arranged everything. We had the email with the tour tickets before we left home.
Valeria did not ask us to pay when we booked. Not even a deposit.
When arrived in St Petersburg, we had no trouble at Passport Control using just our passports & the tour tickets. Our guide was waiting for us and our tour began.
The order that we visited places was arranged to suit both the weather and the number of tourists at that time and not once in two days did we have to wait in the very long queues for visit the Hermitage, Peterhof, Katherines Palace, the Cathedral on the Spilt Blood or anywhere else. She had pre-arranged priority access and we walked past a lot of very long queues. When you have a short time, this is very important.
Our guides’ knowledge was excellent. More detail than we could absorb in two days but an absolutely wonderful experience.
The vehicle that picked the four of us up at the port was a luxurious 8 seater van. Very comfortable and our driver was good. We never had to worry about our bags or our jackets. He stayed with the car at all times.
We were dropped off very close to all points of interest and when we had finished our guided tour, there was our car back waiting for us very near the exit.
Some of the attractions have very specific booked appointment entrance times but our guide managed all of this for us so we arrived at just the right time.
Our guide was very ethical, easy to deal with, very polite and friendly. She made our visit to St Petersburg a complete success. I am very happy that we did not take the very expensive ships excursion and that we chose St. Petersburg Guided Tours

Look for the name Valeria in the reviews to be sure you are looking at the right company.

We had two wonderful days in St. Petersburg. This was our first time for my wife and I to book a private tour and couldn’t have been more pleased. We really enjoyed having Nadia as our guide. She met us after coming off the ship as directed. She did a great job and took care of us very well. She was extremely knowledgeable, more than willing to answer our questions and just pleasant to be with. With the sites being so crowded at times it was nice to get what seemed like special VIP service in getting in and around the crowds. We also liked our driver Sergey and though he said he didn’t speak English much he surprised us with what he did speak and understand. We would highly recommend St. Petersburg Guided Tours.

Fantastic Private Tour

We were searching for an alternative to the higher-priced bus tours available from our cruise line, and wow, did we ever pick a winner with St. Petersburg Guided Tours. We were a group of 4 people, and were accommodated brilliantly with a completely private tour – it was just our group and Oleg our guide, and Yuri our driver. While Oleg provided very interesting background, Yuri very adeptly negotiated the traffic and got us everywhere safely and easily. St. Petersburg Guided Tours made all of our arrangements in advance including Visas and tour/attraction tickets, so we never waited in line to see anything on our itinerary, and had no issues with not being able to speak Russian. In fact, all of our advance communications with Valeria were excellent, very professional, and complete. Oleg adjusted our itinerary to make the most of our time, so we never felt rushed. We would highly recommend this company to anyone wanting a great tour of St. Petersburg from friendly people who take pride in sharing their beautiful city, and who will adjust group sizes and schedules for the benefit of the visitors. All in all, it was a personalized and hastle-free tour that was easier on our pocket book too.

We were on a cruise and booked St Petersburg Guided Tours on our own. We were last minute but they were able to accommodate all our wishes. We customized our own two 1/2 day tours. We had allotted 5 hours each day. They sent us an itinerary that meet our every need. All done through email. They emailed us each a tour pass to get through customs and met us right when we cleared. Paid with a credit card and off we went. It was a 1/3 the cost of the ships tour. It was just our family of four on the tour. We had our own guide and driver in a new Mercedes Tour Van . We were dropped off and picked up at every entrance. They handled all the tickets and we went right to the front of the lines. Some museums even had separate entrances for the tour guide. Very knowledgeable guide and would highly recommend. They kept everything to schedule and even did some extra local knowledge things. We saw the ships tour that had one guide and thirty people. They all had headphones on to hear the guide. I was so grateful that we booked on our own. We were traveling with our two teenage girls and they loved the tours. You can’t go wrong with St Petersburg guided tours. I booked because of these reviews so I thought I should leave one myself.

Took this tour while on a two-day cruise ship stop in st petersburg. first the tour offered a combination of stops/experiences that the cruise-based trips just did not include. further, the tour company took care of all the international visitor paperwork to allow us to enter russia without a traditional visa. their staff was waiting for us each morning outside the terminal and since a personal tour we were able to drive places and closer to places that the large buses could not go. Also, at some locations we were able to use “small group” entrances and side doors to skip the general admission and bus tour entrances. Tour guide and driver were both friendly, personable, knowledgeable about the destination and even further customized our tour based on our interests. They also picked our lunch places which were also a treat and let us taste all kinds of local and ethnic foods. We suggest them to all!

Two memorable days in St Petersburg with the most wonderful travel guide!

Not sure what to expect, but we were very excited to head to Russia, and explore St Petersburg. Looking back, there is no way we would have been able to experience so much (and so much of the good stuff) without our talented, fearless and passionate guide – Valeria.

We were a small group (4) and Valeria and her ever-ready driver had our utmost enjoyment in mind while we were getting the most out of our experience. Usually, I enjoy traveling by myself, or with friends. Tours – not so much. However, I can not recommend Valeria enough to anybody looking to explore the most popular destinations and sites of St Petersburg (wait till you see Valeria handle crowds of people and somehow manage to get you to the front of the line!) and also local markets and restaurants the locals know about as she is both passionate for and native to this remarkable city. Her English is excellent and her Russian accent, “most wonderful”.

We were a family of 3 visiting St Petersburg on a Baltic cruise and wanted a tour tailored to what we most wanted to see. I contacted Valeria based on the Trip Advisor reviews and her excellent website.
We exchanged emails over a week or so and Valeria designed a 2 day itinerary that met our requirements. We’re not very early risers so wanted the day to start around 9am which she was happy to accommodate. During our 2 day tour, we were shown many beautiful palaces and gardens including Peterhoff with its beautiful fountains and gardens, St Peter and Paul Fortress, The Church of the Saviour of Spilled Blood with its amazing mosaics and St Catherine’s Palace with Amber Room. Valeria is passionate about her home city and her enthusiasm and extensive knowledge made such a difference. She was happy to adjust things during the tour for us and I can recommend her service whole heartedly. Such a pleasure to have had 2 days with her.

We were in St. Petersburg for two days last June. We had limited time because we were on a cruise, and also a limited budget. I had contacted Valeria two weeks prior to our trip and she personalized both days to our specific interests and for a great price. The first day she gave us a tour of the City, stopping for pictures and explaining with great detail everything around us. She then took us to the Hermitage Palace, where we found out she has a degree in Art History, so she made us appreciate the important art masterpieces even more. The second day she took us to the Spilled Blood Church and then to the Catherine Palace in Pushkin. Again, she dazzled us with her knowledge and passion for art and history. We didn’t have to go through the line in the entrance and even had time to enjoy tea in the park outside the palace. Most important of all, I felt that I was visiting all of this places with a very knowledgeable friend and not a guide.
