Small-Group 2-Day Visa-Free St Petersburg Highlights Tour
From US$218.90
Overview
Acquiring a visa for Russia and seeing the highlights of St. Petersburg is not always easy, but this tour allows you visit visa-free for two days from your cruise ship. Make the most of your time with a guide and audio headsets for large groups. Entry fees and a photography pass make visiting and photographing museums hassle-free. Travel comfortably in an air-conditioned minivan around St. Petersburg and to Pushkin.
What to Expect

Meet your guide at your cruise ship port for a tour of the highlights of St. Petersburg with a flexible itinerary. Take a city sightseeing tour and visit the local farmer’s market. Travel in an air-conditioned minivan to Peterhof Fountain Park and Gardens and explore the lower gardens. Pause for an optional lunch of blinis at your own expense.

Go by minivan to the town of Pushkin, also known as Tsars’ Village. Visit Catherine's Palace and Amber Room and admire the ornate amber and gold decorations. Take time to walk in the park.

Afterward, return to the city and then to your ship.

My hubby and I joined SPB tours for all shore (except Copenhagen) excursions during our 11 nights' Baltic cruise. St Petersberg's was the best among them as our guide was humorous and spoke fluent English. This probably didn't come as a surprise after numerous outstanding...More

We didn't take advantage of any evening activities. We were pretty tired with all the places we had to visit during the day.
