  Below you will see a sample itinerary for 1/2/3 day tours with total duration of about 9 hours each, which according to your wishes can be modified both in tour day duration and museums' choice. The latter will depend not only on your wishes but also on which days of the week your tours fall because museums in St.Petersburg have days off on different days of the week: the Hermitage and the Great Palace in Peterhof is closed on Monday, Catherine Palace and the Russian Museum - on Tuesday and the last Monday of each month, Spilt-Blood Church and St.Isaac's Cathedral - on Wednesday, etc.

The only thing that remains unchanged in each tour day itinerary is our meeting at your ship/hotel in the morning and your safe delivery back to your ship/hotel in the evening at the agreed time.

Please notice that better acquaintance with the city is only possible with extended city tour consisting of several parts (done in between museums), which will allow you to see not only the main sights such as St.Peter and St. Paul Fortress, Spilt-Blood-Church, St.Isaac's Cathedral, The Bronze Horseman, historical sights on Basil Island, but also visit less touristy places, participate in the vibrant city cultural life, do some shopping, enjoy local cafes, etc. and generally speaking not to be in the rush typical for very busy itineraries.
