Private boat tour is an exciting trip on a private comfortable boat on the rivers and canals of St. Petersburg only for your group accompanied by an English-speaking guide. The route of the boat trip is arranged perfectly so you will be able to see the most beautiful places in St. Petersburg. The classic route is a sailing along the Fontanka, Moika, Kryukov Canal with access to the Big Neva.

Pay attention to:

Most agencies offer you to join a group excursion on a boat of the Fontanka class, designed for 55 people. However, we have for you two comfortable pleasure boats Ladoga and Vyzantiya made for a group of up to 10 people. Private tour only.

Tour itinerary

You will see a picturesque view of the historical part of the city. We will pass by palaces and estates, striking in their beauty and magnificent decoration, we will be able to see the smallest monument in the city, pass under the most beautiful, lowest and widest bridges in the city. We will find ourselves in the deepest river in Russia, the beautiful Neva, the most luxurious embankment of the city will flash before your eyes with its magnificent Winter Palace, where the Russian tsars lived.

You can also book night excursions during which you will see a spectacle of a lifetime — the bridges, we will sail under the divorced spans of the Palace and Trinity bridges.

This tour is suitable for people who want to enjoy the beauty of the city and see its architectural ensembles from a different angle in a cozy atmosphere, with family or friends with the comments of a professional guide.


  • You can take food and drinks with you or order a small buffet table such as champagne and snacks.
  • We initially select the most picturesque route, but if you have any wishes we can coordinate the changes.
  • This tour is an excellent alternative to group boat trips that go along the routes that they have been given and sometimes these are pretty disastrous trips on the back streets of St. Petersburg.
  • An hour and a half is the best time to see the most beautiful things. If you wish you can book a longer walk in advance.

If you book a standard tour on a date that is available then the confirmation of the reservation comes automatically. We try to respond to custom tour inquiry and any questions right away. If we do not have time to answer you within 15 minutes during working hours, you will receive a 5% discount on the total amount of the tour cost.

We are always ready to return the full cost of the tour, in case of cancellation, with the exception of the costs that we made. Therefore, If you cancel the tour with 14 days in advance, we will give you a full refund. For a week or less - individually depending on the tour. In case of cancellation of the tour in less than 3 days, we return 40% of the cost.

By default, we accept 100% payment of tours, as it is generally convenient for everyone. If necessary, you can write to us that you want to pay in part. This is usually not a problem. You can pay the rest on cash in rubles on the first day of excursions.

Yes, all our tours are 100% customizable. By default, we select the perfect tour program verified by thousands of our tourists, but if you have any specific requests, we will take them into account and change them for you. In order to send a request for a custom tour - write to us by mail or make a phone call or fill out and send the form at the end of the description of the tour.

We have really great experience in organizing excursions in St. Petersburg. When assessing the quality of our work, we rely on the feedback of more than 7 thousand tourists who were satisfied with their trip. We organize 100% private tours, while many of our competitors, especially those who working through universal tour aggregators, often cannot guarantee the fact that the tour will be individual and instead of a private car, you will have a minivan with other tourists who are no less surprised and distressed than you.
In addition, our guides will never take you to the souvenir/gift shop, unless you ask them for it. While at present, most of the guides working in other agencies consider it their duty to forcefully bring their tourists to the souvenir shop and earn commissions. Despite the fact that for us this is unconditionally unacceptable and obviously extremely disrespectful to the guests of our city - the situation on the tourism market is just that. Therefore, if you are serious about making your trip go without disappointment, it is worth making an effort to find quality services. Our goal is not just to sell you a tour, but we want to make your stay in St. Petersburg excellent, therefore we are very attentive to the details, and we constantly improve and refine our products.

This tour is suitable for people who value comfort and want to be sure that their trip will be perfect.

Especially if you have a large company of 8-10 people because in this case the cost of a walk per person is equivalent to a group tour and the quality of the tour remains much higher.

This tour is ideal to book with a sightseeing tour of the city, but it is also suitable for any other visit to the museum within the city.

Additionally, you can order Champagne and Fruits.

No, it isn’t. Usually, we have the opportunity to start the tour within walking distance from the hotel. At your request, if necessary we can arrange a transfer by private car or taxi.

Both boats are very comfortable and the same in capacity. Vyzantiya is a premium class boat.

Unfortunately, this tour is not wheelchair accessible.

You can book this tour any day from May to October.

We would prefer you to book this tour a week before, but you can send a tour inquiry up to 24 hours before, and we will immediately answer you about available spots.
