This St. Petersburg city tour takes you on a journey through the all of this and more, from a local perspective. You can expect to visit the following areas:
Start your St. Petersburg tour from the Palace Square, which is dominated by the Winter Palace. Next, you’ll pass the palace where the famous beef stroganoff dish was invented and continue towards St. Isaac’s Square, to see its beautiful cathedral. Get the inside scoop behind the stunning archictural flourishes on this gorgeous building, and discover how it has been used over the centuries.

After crossing the Neva River, we’ll stop at a favorite local spot from which you can enjoy panoramic views of the Palace Embankment with its renowned Hermitage Museum, and many prominent St. Petersburg landmarks including St. Isaac’s Cathedral, the Admiralty, and the Chamber of Curiosities.
With your local St. Petersburg guide, you will pay a visit to the oldest structure in the city, and the site where the town of Peter started in 1703.
