If your party would prefer to see as much as possible, we would suggest our 2-day St Petersburg Grand tour. Two more fabulous museums are added to this comprehensive tour: St Isaac's Cathedral and Yusupov Palace. For saving your precious time we use a hydrofoil ride out to Peterhof (or back).
Lunches: Our St. Petersburg Grand tour includes two different types of lunches: One will be a sit-down lunch at a local restaurant: Soup, main course (usually chicken or turkey, but, infrequently, beef), bread, drink (water + tea or coffee) and desert. The other will be a packed lunch: your packed lunch will include a great favorite of our Baltic visitors: a choice of a savory and sweet Stolle pie, an apple, a bar of chocolate, juice and bottled still water. If you have any dietary restrictions, please advise well in advance, and we will do our best to provide you with the appropriate meal if possible.
Please note that this is a HIGH activity tour and is not recommended for guests with significant mobility issues. If you have significant mobility issues or require use of a rollator walker or wheelchair, please contact us for our recommendations. As always, we will be happy to accommodate private tour wishes wherein our guests may enjoy the greatest flexibility to move at their own pace and see what they wish.
When we speak of the advantages of ourSt Petersburg Grand tour, it is important to note the following:
For the Grand Tour, we plan a packed lunch on the day we visit the suburban estates. This is a great advantage since it allows a savings of 1 hour of our guests' sightseeing time for experiencing the beauty of Peterhof park. Having a restaurant lunch in the suburbs means less time for the actual tour of the park's full route, leading to a rushed visit though the park's shortest route.
