Tour description provided by Viator

Explore St Petersburg with a private guide on a 4-hour city highlights tour! Learn all about the city history as you travel around the city by private vehicle, and stop for photos and strolls near key attractions like the Church on Spilled Blood and Winter Palace, home to the Hermitage Museum. See Peter and Paul Fortress and visit Nevsky Prospekt, the city’s main shopping street. The itinerary can be tailored to your preferences.

Start your tour of St Petersburg at a time that suits you best, and relax with a pickup from your central hotel by luxury minivan. As you travel, your private guide will talk to you about the city and also about the things that you want to see. The itinerary is flexible, so if there’s something you want to see more of, simply let your guide know.

Take a look at Winter Palace, home of the world-famous Hermitage Museum, and hear about Empress Catherine II who started the incredible collection of art as means of impressing her guests. Stop for photos in front of the impressive Baroque building, and then stretch your legs on a stroll along Nevsky Prospekt – St Petersburg’s answer to Paris’ Champs Elysées.

Pass the imposing Peter and Paul Fortress, built by the Russian Tsar Peter the Great, and hear of its use as a prison, rather than being the defense structure that it was intended to be. Stop outside the city’s multi-domed Church on Spilled Blood, and compare its colorful, attention-grabbing architecture with the elegant gold domes of nearby St Isaac’s Cathedral.

As well as giving intriguing snippets of history about the city, your guide can give you tips for places to visit independently after your tour. Finish with a drop-off at your hotel and then bid your guide goodbye.
