2-Day Shore Excursion in St Petersburg without Museums

If you only have 2 days in St Petersburg, it does not mean that you will not have time to explore the city or enjoy its atmosphere. On this private shore excursion, you will not visit any busy museums or waste your time in lines. On both days, you will explore the highlights of St Petersburg, its most popular landmarks as well as the places inaccessible for most tourists and beloved by the locals. You will ride the famous Russian metro, visit the fountain park of Peterhof and ride along rivers and canals by boat. Lots of free time for walking, shopping, picture taking, and coffee drinking are included. Feel free as a local and comfortable as the most important guest. Our experienced guide and driver will take care of your city break.
