Perfectly chosen program will get you acquainted with the most famous and luxurious landmarks of St. Petersburg and its suburbs.

The two-day tour includes a city tour in a car with a visit to the main cathedrals and the Peter and Paul Fortress, a place, where the city was founded. An experienced personal driver and a comfortable business-class car allow you to move fast between the must-see attractions, distant from the center. For example, the magnificent Smolny Cathedral, the construction of which took 87 years.

When driving over the famous drawbridges from the coast to the bank of the Neva River, you will repeatedly see the famous embankments of St. Petersburg.

It was Peter the Great, who ordered to construct buildings on embankments close to each other to create a fascinating picture of a continuous line of facades of historic buildings. Thus, even a car trip from the Savior-on-the-Blood to the Curiosity Cabinet turns into an exciting excursion of the open-air museum. And our guide will not make you bored, for sure.

A visit to the Peter and Paul Cathedral, the Savior on Spilled Blood Church and the St. Isaac’s Cathedral will get you acquainted with the role of Christianity in the history of Russia and allow you to appreciate the unique architecture of the churches and their wonderful interior decorations.

Lunch in the Winter Palace creates the right mood before an excursion to the Hermitage, where unique masterpieces of world culture are kept. Three hours won’t be enough for you to look at all 3.5 million pieces of art located in the intricate mazes of 5 buildings of the museum complex. Fortunately, our guides know the correct routes, which allow you to see the most interesting and world-famous exhibits, such as paintings by Rembrandt, Rubens, Da Vinci, Raphael, Goya, and Velasquez.

Guided tour to the Hermitage Museum gives a unique opportunity to see the originals of ancient sculpture, an Egyptian mummy and much more.

The second day starts with immersion in the underground and viewing of the first luxurious stations of the St. Petersburg Metro made in the Stalinist Empire Style. You will see the following stations:

  • Narvskaya
  • Kirovsky Zavod
  • Avtovo

They are made in one uniform style, but at the same time, the architecture of each station is unique.

From the Avtovo metro station, a personal driver will take you to the Russian Versailles with its famous fountains and parks near the Gulf of Finland. After the visit to the luxurious Peterhof Grand Palace with its magnificent hall interior decorations, which are in full accordance with the atmosphere of the past centuries, the guide will show you around the Park.

A great number of fountains, flowers, and trees located on the picturesque shore of the Gulf of Finland make it clear that the rulers of imperial Russia were not without a taste.

Lunch at a restaurant styled to look like a Russian hut, where bearskins hang on the walls, and pancakes and traditional snacks are served, and vodka, of course, keeps the authentic atmosphere of Tsarist Russia.

The tour of the suburb palaces is completed by a visit to the Catherine Palace in the city of Pushkin, also known as Tsarskoe Selo. Here you can visit the most beautiful park and the palace with its famous Amber Room, and skip successfully no less famous queues which stretch to an impressive distance in front of the palace building. Equally luxurious, but absolutely unique suburban tsar’s residences create a steady feeling of time travel, and only our driver can take you back from it to the hotel directly.

Yes, you will have a separate entrance and you won’t have to stand in line for hours at the entrance to the palaces. However, due to the specific way the museum works in the high season, there can be some additional period of waiting caused by a large flow of tourist groups with a guide. In any case, it is dozens of times faster than staying in the main line, the length of which has already made it a legend.
