St. Petersburg Metro is a unique architectural complex that demonstrates the history of the city since 1955. Everything is imbued with history here — from the first eight stations-museums with luxurious interiors in the Stalin’s Empire style dedicated to a certain themes in the spirit of Soviet ideology, to simpler stations of the Khrushchev-era with “Struggle against Architecture Excesses” and stations with leaking ceilings built for the World Cup 2018 in a hurry.
Petersburg Metro is the deepest in Europe, this is due to the fact that the soil here is swampy. The tunnels were flooded repeatedly during their construction. This required using special methods for laying tunnels when the soil around future lines was frozen for two weeks.
During the Metro Tour, you will learn more about its construction and history, as well as explore the most excellent metro stations including Avtovo, which is listed under the most beautiful stations in the world according to The Guardian and The Telegraph. A private English-speaking guide will take you to the following stations:
- Ploshchad Vosstaniya
- Kirovsky Zavod
The fact that the new stations were built extremely poorly — you will see for yourself. Our tour includes visits to the most magnificent metro stations on the first built line and the deepest station in St. Petersburg — Admiralteyskaya.
The tour usually starts on Ploshchad Vosstaniya and ends at the Admiralteyskaya Ploshchad — next to St. Isaac’s Square, where most hotels are located. The tour is completely custom, so the route and duration can be changed according to your wishes.
Tour duration: 2 hours
This is an extra tour. This means that its price will be relevant only if it’s combined with some other tour. For example, you can book a Metro Tour with a visit to Peterhof, a City Tour or a Tour off the Beaten Path.

00If you think that St Petersburg has only beautiful churches and palaces you're quite mistaken! We booked the Private Metro Tour and were amazed by the fabulous interiors of subway stations. During the tour, we visited old stations such as Avtovo and Ploshad Vosstanya. Our guide Dina told us interesting stories and city legends connected with the subway. A pleasant bonus: you can take photos!
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.
