It covers two of the city's major attractions—the Hermitage Museum and Peter and Paul Fortress with Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral—plus includes photo stops at sights such as St. Isaac’s Square and the Winter Palace. Travel by private vehicle with a private guide.

Your experience starts in the morning by meeting your private guide at your St Petersburg hotel.

On a 3-hour city tour, you'll pass by many landmarks and sights, making photo stops at the Spit of Basil Island, Rostral Columns, Egyptian Sphinxes, the Academy of Fine Arts, and St. Isaac's Square, home to the Nicholas I monument, Mariinsky Palace, St. Isaac Cathedral, the Blue Bridge, and Hotel Angleterre.

Visit Peter and Paul Fortress, which you'll enter to see the Artillery Museum, Trinity Square, Cabin of Peter I, and Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral. Then drive along Nevsky Prospect to see Kazan Cathedral, Stroganov Palace, the Yeliseev grocery store, Alexander's Theatre, and the Monument to Catherine II before making a photo stop at Palace Square to admire Winter Palace and Alexander’s Column. Additional photo stops include Theatre Square to see the Mariinsky Opera and Ballet Theater, Rimsky-Korsakov Conservatory, Bridge of Kisses, and Yusupov Palace and a photo stop at the Church on the Spilled Blood, Griboedov Canal, Square of Arts, Mikhailovsky Palace, and Mikhailovsky Opera and Ballet House.
