Discover the best of St. Petersburg with a friendly local tour guide! We will start with a relaxing drive through the city’s islands. Admire the English Embankment with historical mansions, see the famous draw bridges, the magnificent Palace Square, and take breathtaking pictures at the Spit of Basil’s Island. You will see that the scale of the city is quite impressive, given that it was designed 300 years ago. Your guide will introduce you to historical streets with charming old buildings and monuments which often remain unnoticed by an ordinary visitor. As you explore the city in a comfortable minivan, the guide will share the most fascinating facts, anecdotes and stories about the rich history of St. Petersburg.
When the time comes for a break, we’ll invite you to enjoy a Samovar tea ceremony, and taste one of the most popular local desserts – Russian pancakes served with honey, jams and sour cream. We will then continue exploring the city on foot with a walk along Nevsky prospect. This thoroughfare boasts a number of the finest buildings in the city that we will see before dropping into the famous Eliseevsky Store with unique art nouveau interiors. The splendor and luxury of this tsarist-era grocery store is breathtaking even now, and it’s also a great place to buy St. Petersburg souvenirs. Our stroll will finish at a modern caviar bar, where you will be offered a selection of delicious black caviar with crusty toasts. It’s a perfect place to end our tour, but you are welcome to stay for more culinary experiences.
