PETERHOF TOUR.
Peterhof is the summer residence of former Russian emperors located in one hour drive from the city center. You will tour the Upper Garden which resembles Versailles in its planning and, of course, the Lower Park with its incomparable fountains. You'll be astonished by the Great Cascade with its gold-embossed sculptures glistening amidst springs of crystal clear water! Your guide will show you many beautiful fountains along with pavilions and sculptures that bare historical significance.

On the way back to St. Petersburg you will have a chance to see the "not so touristy" districts of St. Petersburg making a short METRO TRIP the interiors of which recall palaces not subways.

ST. ISAAC'S CATHEDRAL TOUR. The dome is gilded with 100 kilograms of gold. St. Isaac's is ranked as number one in the world for the richness of its interior decoration.

We thoroughly enjoyed our full 2 days tour with Roman as our guide. He was born and raised in St. Petersburg, and it shows. He provided insights that we would not have otherwise gotten as outsiders. BTW, Russian food is amazing!

HYDROFOIL:
Upon your request made in advance, we can add a hydrofoil ride to/from Peterhof. Please be informed that some people consider St.Petersburg hydrofoils to be too noisy and crowded. Due to local navigation safety standards, they may not be available on very windy days.

EARLY ADMISSION:
We can arrange for "early admission" which allow you to enter the museums earlier than the official opening hours or "special opening" which allows you to visit the museum when it is typically closed. However, please do not expect to be the only visitors there. It is not a reservation made by one company for one group of tourists. That's how some tour providers will present it. Sometimes the museum is more crowded during "early admission" hours than after it's officially open for public. Usually museum occupancy depends on the number of cruise ships in the port on any given day. In other words that depends on your luck. Even though we won't be able to avoid all the crowds inside the sights (most of the city must sees are crowded from May to September) please do not be concerned, we will be able to take you inside avoiding long lines.

If the mentioned cost is beyond your travel budget you can invite some fellow cruisers to join your party increasing its size and reducing the price per person. We can assist you in setting up your group, offering this option to all travelers who might be interested in joining you on the same dates.
