Get  ready  to  be  impressed  by colossal Hermitage  Museum  and  its  fabulous  art  collection.  With so many priceless works of art collected over three centuries in this world class museum, enjoy this a once in a lifetime opportunity to see such world heritage. Later amplify  your  impression  with  different  overview  on a boat  cruise  across  the  whole  city center.  Discover  the  most  impressive  views  of  Saint Petersburg  floating  along  its  central  rivers  and  canals.

This tour will begin in the lobby of your hotel, from where your private guide will take you to the Hermitage Museum by car. 

Whether one sees it from the Palace Square, or from the water the Hermitage is certainly one of the most arresting architectural wonders of St. Petersburg and Russia. Explore a part of its treasures on this private tour. Overall, the Hermitage boasts over three million works within its walls, and it is easy to spend days wandering the impressive halls and admiring the range of artworks displayed. Your guide will take on you on a 2-hour walk to see objects of superb aesthetic and artistic value, which the Czars of the Romanov dynasty collected incessantly for two centuries. Appreciate the vast Winter Palace square architecture and massive scale of the almost countless galleries are staggering in themselves, whether in the volume of real gold gildings or incredible wood parquet floors. 

St. Petersburg is a series of islands separated by canals. After visit to the Hermitage with your guide you will jump on a public boat which plies the city's concentric canals, under whimsical bridges and past beautiful mansions and churches. The boat putters up a canal and suddenly will pop out into the Neva — a river so wide it feels like the ocean — treating you to sweeping riverfront vistas of palaces, museums, and fortress. While onboard you will have your own radio-guide to better understand floating surroundings.
