Full description
Day 1: Starting your day early at 8:30, begin with a city overview tour, including the most famous and beautiful sights of St. Petersburg. Move on to Pushkin, also known as Tzarskoe Selo, and visit the former Tsars' summer residence - Catherine's Palace, including the famous Amber Room - known locally as the 8th Wonder of the World. Enjoy some free time to have lunch in one of the local cafes or explore the area, before embarking on the Peterhof Tour. Here you can see the Upper Garden, resembling Versailles in its planning and, of course, the Lower Park with its incomparable fountains. On the way back to St. Petersburg, you have a chance to see the part of St. Petersburg most tourists miss, before returning to the ship at 17:00. Day 2: Begin your day at 8:00 with a private cruise along the rivers and canals of the Venice of the North. Enjoy the beauty of The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, which startles visitors with its might and multicoloured domes. Have some free time to explore the area before your visit to the Hermitage Museum, including the Winter Palace, the small Hermitage, the New Hermitage, and the Old Hermitage. Take in the art collections, with over three million works of art, and the spectacular state and private rooms. Conclude your day with a tour of St Isaac's Cathedral, ranked as number one in the world for the richness of its interior decoration, before returning to your ship at 17:00.

We booked 2 Day St Petersburg Tour on Monday, September 02 and Tuesday 03. Our provider was Ludmila Tours, and our guide was Eugenia and Boris our driver. It was very nice; Saint Petersburg is amazing but Boris and Eugenia were fantastic. The tour was for a up 16 people, but 1st day we were the only ones and next day we were 4 people, so basically was a private tour. So much fun. Thanks so very much!

Excellent tour with professional and attentive guides.

I confess I was unsure as there were few reviews on the internet, but it was definitely the best choice I made in St. Petersburg. We disembarked by ship. Ludmila tour took a while to arrive, but punctually at 8:30 started our first day of the tour. They have a new, well-equipped micro van for up to 14 people and modern microphones and headphones for tourists. The guide Tânia, very professional, attentive and polite. We got to see the best of St. Petersburg in two days, without getting in the long lines there and with security and historical information. Lunch was at a nice hotel in the city center. Highly recommend this tour !!! Worth every penny!

Ludmilla tours and Christina where brilliant

We booked through Get Your Guide and were allocated Ludmilla Tours to host our 2 days in St Petersburg. They were brilliant from start to finish, very responsive and our guide Christina, was excellent, if there were six stars to a review she would have had them. The two days were full on and very busy, but a fantastic overview of St Petersburg and Russia - thank you Ludmilla Tours and Christina
