While admiring the beauty of the Nevsky Prospect and the hundreds of canals and streets coming off it, your guide will provide you a brief history of the founding of the city and how it became the capital of the Russian Empire. After you reach the famous Hermitage Museum on the Palace Square and admire the architectural wonders of Bartolomeo Rastrelli, head down the Palace Embankment toward the statue of the Bronze Horseman (Peter the Great) on the Thunder Stone. From here, you will be able to enjoy a beautiful view seeing Vasilyevsky Island and The Menshikov Palace on the other side of Neva River. From the monument, your guide will take you to the Kazan Cathedral, which was modeled on the building of St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome.

After visiting the cathedral step into Mikhailovsky Sad (Michaels Garden) – one of the most beautiful parks of Imperial Russia.  The fresh air, trees, a pond with a bridge and the two styles of park landscape (French and English) will give you a break from St. Petersburg’s architecture. As you pass through the park you will head toward another memorable destination – Field of Mars (Marsovo Pole). The park is named after the Roman god of War – Mars.  The park was established almost simultaneously with the founding of St. Petersburg. The park currently serves both as a memorial and as a reminder of the victories of the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union. “The Field of Mars” was the first park to ignite the “Eternal Flame” which became the symbol of commemoration of the soldiers that died during World War II. After a stroll through these two parks, head to the famous Faberge Museum. The museum has a collection of over 4,000 works of decorative and fine arts, including paintings, porcelain, and bronze.

We booked this tour with an english speaking guide to make sure we understood what we were seeing. Well worth it. You could try doing it independently but you would miss so much information. Our guide Olga arrived and was excellent from the very outset. Her knowledge and passion for the tour was exceptional. Peter and Paul fortress excellent, followed by church of the spilled blood and onto St Isaac cathedral. Although we were the only two on the tour we found Olga made us feel like a member of her own family when it came to stop for a traditional russian lunch. When it came to the highlight of the tour which was the Hermitage museum this is where the expert guide Olga made the tour worth every penny. Her knowledge as we said earlier was brilliant. Booking through Get your guide was the first time we have booked experiences online but will definitely be using this website in the future. Rob and Vanessa Newell

There were two of us and we chose a private tour which turned out to be magical! Our guide, Elena, transported us to another era, in this magnificent house, and brings to life the wonderful objects before us, giving them back their history and their value. We could no longer imagine a successful visit to this museum without Elena. Almost two hours which appeared two minutes. Thank you Elena, who does not hesitate to speak about other places in Saint Petersburg either and advise in all areas

I liked the excursion very much! Worth the money. The audio guide speaks clearly, interestingly and constructively. There is a great opportunity to calmly examine the exhibit and move at your own pace, switching the excursion to the next lot. There is no group crush, if you do not understand something, you can rewind and listen to it again. The emphasis is well placed on the details of the exhibits, historical notes. I advise!

Elena was great company and although it was just my wife and I who were shown around which made it a fairly expensive visit (over (£100) it was a brilliant afternoon and to top it off Elena made some great recommendations.

It is good value for money! Egg-cellent and eggs-traordinary showcase of the Imperial Easter eggs, other valuable treasures and fine arts!
