Know More about this tour

This 6-hour tour engages the entire family with an interactive presentation of Saint petersburg's history and its mysteries.

Meet your private guide and driver at your centrally located Saint petersburg hotel at 10am. Begin your day with an introductory city sightseeing tour where your children's spirit will be reflected by your experienced guide to involve the family into the magic of Saint petersburg. Stop at the enormous mountain-like edifice of Saint Isaac Cathedral. Pass along breathtaking multi-domed Church of the Spilled Blood which resembles a fairy tale jewellery box. Stroll along the major thoroughfare of Sadovaya Street (Garden Street) and be surprised by cats watching you from above. You will find more activities on the street like rolling the fountain ball and much more. Also, you will enjoy a look at the showcase at the corner grocery store featuring copies of the characters from Tchaikovsky's ballet "Nutcracker."

After a short break you will be welcomed to The state hermitage Museum, which is one of the largest museums in the world. The Hermitage occupies a grand ensemble of buildings and is recognized as one of the best examples of European architecture. The most impressive is the baroque mid 18th century Winter palace added later with the Small Hermitage, the Large Hermitage, New Hermitage and the Hermitage theater buildings. The walls of these buildings have witnessed a great number of important historical events - from Peter the Great to Nicolay II. Every visitor can come close to the Russian history here. Here, you will find yourselves in Cinderella's paradise passing through its fairy tale-like interiors. Its collections comprise over three million items and can meet anyone's visual interests and enthusiasm for art and history. Enjoy the works by Da Vinci, Rafael, Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Picasso, El Greco and many other Old Masters, as well as other collections of sculptures, prints, paintings and archaeological finds dating as far back as 3,000 B.C.

    We really enjoyed this tour. What a great way to get an overview of the city and its history. Our 6 year old also enjoyed it. Our tour guide went out of her way to include him - she asked him questions throughout the tour, took him to the Knight room at the Hermitage which she had a feeling he would enjoy and she was right, gave him a set of chocolates with pictures of sites around town and told him with our permission that he could eat a piece of chocolate after we visited each site. It was drizzling on and off, and being able to drive around and stop at each site to explore a little made it possible to see more than we would have had we been on our own. Our guide was very knowledgeable and was able to pass on her knowledge without it being overwhelming. I highly recommend this tour for anyone, but especially to families with young children, as this was an easy way to tour a city without being overwhelmed.
