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.

Caroline. St Petersburg Tours

Vancouver, Canada. Visited July 2018

St Petersburg Tours

My husband and I had a fantastic 3 day tour with St Petersburg Tours. Valeria arranged the Car and Dimitri to drive us, Nadia was our guide for the first 2 days and Maria took over for our 3rd day. We managed to fit in everything we requested, subway ride, Palaces, Churches, local eating spots and an amazing ballet. Their local knowledge, history, English skills and personable stories made it very enjoyable.

First Class Tour

I can go on and on on how this company was the best choice for my 3 days cruise stop in St. Petersburg but I’ll try to do it as short as possible.
Daria was our tour guide and was very energetic, full of knowledge and passionate about every place we went, she wanted to transmit every single detail of all the historical places we visited. We did the Hermitage, Faberge Museum, St Issac Cathedral, Catherine Palace, cathedral of the savior on spilled blood, a river cruise and the Peterhof gardens and fountains were we were treated to a VIP view of the grottos. We had the opportunity to meet Valeria for a personal tour of the Yusupov Palace. I have to say that we never waited on any line to enter any of this places and our driver was always waiting for us at anytime we came out of this places, his car was new and very clean. We were a group of four adults and had the best experience anyone can have wile visiting St. Petersburg.

Globetraveller21. The best possible tour guide company in St Petersburg!

Cheshire, UK. Visited June 2018

The best possible tour guide company in St Petersburg!

Valeria is the most knowledgeable of guides with a passion for all the architecture and treasures that St Petersburg has to offer. She is unbelievably enthusiastic and will help you choose your bespoke tour by email before you even set off on your trip. Once in St Petersburg she is organised and efficient and will whisk you from one site to another in an air-conditioned vehicle, managing to beat the queues and even gain access where others don’t seem to be able to go. Her English is perfect and after spending 3 days with her we felt as if we were saying goodbye to a friend. Highly recommended!

MM R. My research to find a great Tour Operator paid off

Havelock, New Zealand. Visited August 2017

My research to find a great Tour Operator paid off

We wanted to have a more personal tour for our 3 days in St Petersburg. One where we could go at our pace but more importantly see things as locals would. There are many operators in StP and difficult to work out which is best for you. After much research (having been a Travel Agent for many years) I chose to work with Valeria. We could not have been happier with the arrangements and contact we had at all times and the confidence I felt when dealing with her. From the purchasing of theatre tickets to the day to day schedule we were not rushed but were able see all our desires. Having Nadia as our guide was special in its self as we learnt so much about the people and the way of life in StP through Nadia. She effortlessly moved us to the front of queues ensued we were moving in the right space to be in front of the most famous paintings and works or art while others could only stretch to get a glimpse. Our transport and driver couldnt be faulted, clean vehicle personable driver always waiting when we were ready to move onand excellent driving skills. We would definitely use Valeria and her company again and would recommend her for a hasslefree option when travelling to StP

scusick. Best Private tour ever!

Best Private tour ever!

Valeria and our driver Dimitri were the best. We have been in St. Petersburg before, so we reached out to a couple of tour companys and Valeria was the only one that was really willing to work with us. We wanted to see things that were different than the 1st time we went and she could not have done a better job. I would recommend them as a 1st pick of tour companies!

Hannah J. Wonderful, wonderful tour company

London, UK. Visited July 2017

Wonderful, wonderful tour company

My husband and I were on a Baltic Cruise that stopped in STP for 3 days. We were recommended this tour company and they more than provided us with the service that we required. Valeria put together the most wonderful tour of St. Petersburg that met our mobility requirements and interests and yet we could see all the main sites for the 3 days that we were in the city. From the moment Nadia and Constantin met us at the quayside on the Sunday to the time they waved us back on board on Tuesday afternoon on time, we had a most interesting and fascinating visit and we both felt that our needs were extremely well cared for. Nadia’s knowledge not just of the Hermitage but every site we visited was truly impressive. She also made sure that the pace of the visits during the three days was exactly what we wanted and gave us an insight into living in Russia today.

KarenSmithdorset. Brilliant guided tours

Dorset, Great Britain. Visited June 2016

Brilliant guided tours

We booked a 3 day guided tour with Valeria. We highly recommend any tourist to do the same . We saw everything we wanted to see and Valeria made it all so easy and interesting. We didn’t have to queue to get into all the main attractions because Valeria had organised tickets in advance which meant we had so much more time to explore all the wonderful art galleries and palaces. Her knowledge of St Petersburg was outstanding. She also recommended excellent restaurants at night and was full of advice concerning other attractions such as underground stations and unusual cafes we could have missed without her. We can’t imagine how we would have managed without her. Valeria is a superb tour guide.
