Full description
This Cruise Walking Tour is affordable, visa-free, and worry-free. You can add-on a round-trip transfer option and save time for sight-seeing. Saint Petersburg is perfect in cruise season — it is never too hot and a guided walk will give you a clear image of the city and exclude you from thousands of other tourists in the museums. The tour will start in the port of Saint Petersburg itself. Your guide will meet you at the arrival area of the port terminal. You will get to the city center by underground which is probably the most beautiful metro system in Europe. At Nevsky Prospect, you'll see Kazan Cathedral, Saint Isaac’s Cathedral (outside visit), Bronze Horseman, Peter and Paul Fortress and its grounds, Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood (outside visit), Field of Mars, Eliseevy Merchants’ Shop, the USSR cafe, Kunstkammer, the Academy of Sciences and St. Petersburg State University. You will also be able to have lunch on tour (not included in price) in the USSR cafe Kvartirka. This is a small-group walking tour and you need to be relatively fit to spend 4 hours walking. You cannot go around the city on your own and the guide will need to escort you back to the port. The tour will be available during the cruise season only (1 May — 30 October).

Sankt Petersburg „ein einziges Museum“

Zuerst geht unser Dank an Marina Wilson und unserem Guide Valentin, der mit unendlich viel Wissen, uns (glücklicherweise nur) als Zweier-Gruppe nach der Passkontrolle im Kreuzfahrtterminal zur 4-stündigen englisch-sprachigen Walking-Tour durch Sankt Petersburg am 24.08.2018 abholte. Vorteil: Kein Hinterherlaufen von mehren Dutzend Touristen hinter einer vom Guide hoch gehaltenen Nummer. U-Bahn fahren und Geschichte zu diversen historischen Bahnhöfen, wunderbar verständlich vermittelt. Zu Fuss sömtliche Highlights von Sankt Petersburg gesehen und erklärt bekommen. Details siehe Tour-Beschreibung. Man muss dabei gewesen sein ... Soviet Café, genial. Wunderbares Essen und Kwas. Wenn Sankt Petersburg und Umgebung, würden wir nur noch mit Valentin von Marina Wilson Tours auf Entdeckungsreisen gehen wollen!

Olga was very kind and flexible with very good knowledge

Olga picked us up at the cruise ship at the agreed time. She was very flexible regarding the itinerary and explained everything in a good way. We appreciated the time which we spent with her.
