Get away from the large, cattle call ship sponsored cruise ship shore excursions in St. Petersburg, Russia! With a limit of just 16 guests, this is a very personalized shore excursion (for larger groups, please contact us). See the best of St. Petersburg on this 2 day all inclusive city sightseeing excursion. Sightsee, highlights, history, culture and even lunch is provided and included.

Your St. Petersburg cruise excursion guide will be with you every step of the way and will inform, explain and show you the rich wonders of St. Petersburg. With your licensed guide leading the group, you will explore the city along with its highlights and famous sights.

Day 1
Begins with a motor coach city tour of St. Petersburg with photo stops covering all the main highlights of the city - times are approximate. Starting from the cruise terminal, you will drive along Nevsky Prospect, the busiest street in the city. See the former palaces and houses of noble families. Your professional guide will tell the myths and facts of Saint Petersburg, talk about the history and everyday life too. Note that all timings are approximate.

Next is a scenic ride to Peterhof - world's capital of fountains or the Versailles of the North. Take a walking tour of the Royal Gardens. See over 100 fountains that make a walk here peaceful and relaxing. The view from the lower garden to the Grand Palace is one of the most spectacular views in the city. See the famous fountain of St. Sampson.

Next is a traditional style Russian lunch that is included with your excursion. You will then travel 20km (12.5 miles) to Tzar's Village and see Catherine Palace built for Catherine the Great, walk through the Amber Room and see the doors inlaid with gold. Pure opulence!

On your way back to the city you will have a peek at the Metro system (underground subway) with its elaborate interior and architecture. Then it is on for a stop at St. Isaac Cathedral, known as a masterpiece of 19th-century architecture.

The last stop of day 1 is the Church of Spilled Blood (Church of the Resurrection) with its 7,000 square meters of mosaic-covered walls. Your guide will escort you back to your cruise ship and be waiting for you the next morning to continue the exploration.

Day 2
Start with a boat ride down the canals where you will view the city from a different perspective! Your first stop will be the Hermitage Museum. Ranked among the top 5 in the world, the collection is so large that only 13% is on display at a time and you will get to see some of the sumptuous examples of the Romanov Dynasty and the cream of the collection. You will stop for lunch before heading to your next stop.

As day 2 comes to a close, your Russia sightseeing shore excursion guide will drop you off at your ship's gangway with plenty of time before your ship leaves port.

You will see the best of St. Petersburg from start to finish. All entrance fees, taxes, transportation, lunch and tour charges are included. Just some of the sights, stops, and items included are:

Just amazing
     5/5  June 2016
We cruised aboard the Regal Princess last month and St. Petersburg was one of our ports of call. We were greeted by our guide who was very friendly and so fond of russian culture, she provided us all of the information about every place we visited. I don't know where to start, on the first day we visited Catherine Palace, no words can describe the architecture of this place, they lived in a very luxurious manner hahaha On the second day, my favorite place was the Hermitage Museum, I had no idea it was one of the oldest museums in the world!! Lunch was delicious and tasty on both days! After going on this excursion I can recommend you to start saving money if planning on going to Russia and on this excursion, it is a little expensive but totally worth it!!
