the metro stations of our city. What makes us different from other tour companies  We combine “must see” and “off the beaten track” sites. You see much more than the majority of other big groups do.  You can choose between public transport and private car in the majority of cases. Public transport is much cheaper and it gives you more flexibility with time as cars are rented for a specific period of time. You are paying for a rented car even when you are inside museums.  Local experience. We are trying to give you a local experience – you can get around by public transport with us have a snack where locals go – well give you recommendations on places where we go.  We are quick to react. As a rule we answer within 24 hours.  We are really not afraid to walk an extra mile in any sense. St Petersburg walking tour You will see attractions on both banks of the river Neva as during shorter tours you usually cover only one bank. This walking city tour is very effective for people who stay in St Petersburg for a short period of time as you’ll see as much as possible in only about 4 hours Duration: approximately 4 hours Meeting point: your hotel Availability: daily Catherine palace tour A tour of the Catherine palace a stunning former summer residence of russian tzars and home to the famous Amber room is a “must do” for the majority of tourists . Its rather hard to visit it independently firstly because it is situated out of the city and its difficult for many foreigners to get there. Second problem is that the palace is very popular and there is a risk of wasting a lot of time in a line for tickets

especially in summer when most people are coming to St Petersburg. Our tour allows you to visit the the Catherine palace hassle-free as we book tickets in advance. Also you can enhance your experience and include a visit to the less well-known Alexander palace which was the favorite home of the last Russian tzar Nicholas II and his family. Duration: normally a tour of the Catherine palace and park takes about 6-7 hours with transportation time depending on your pace and weather. Availability: Daily except Tuesdays. The last Monday and Wednesday of each month are sanitary days consult if you want to visit only one palace. Peterhof tour A private tour of Peterhof the former summer residence of Russian tzars is the best half day trip you can take in summer. The place is mainly famous for its fountain park but you can also see beautiful palaces cozy pavilions and magnificent church of Peter and Paul. You can choose public transport hydrofoil or a private car. I typically recommend public transport at least one-way as you can see some of the most beautiful metro stations this way Availability: Fountain park – daily from May to early October. Grand palace – daily except Monday Duration: About 6-7 hours by public transport Yusupov palace tour Yusupov palace is known not only for its lavishly decorated interiors not a surprise since Yusupov family was probably richer than Russian tzars but also for the murder of Rasputin that took place there. During the tour you will learn about the Yusupov family marvel at the intricate beauty of the rooms and listen to the mysterious story of the Rasputin murder. Availability: daily St Petersburg metro tour Metro in St Petersburg is often called “underground palaces” for common people because of the beauty of its stations. Also its like a history book – you can learn a lot about Russia and the Soviet union exploring the decorations with a private guide. Availability: daily
