Saint Petersburg: Private Half-Day Tour with Faberge Museum

3. Saint Petersburg: Private Half-Day Tour with Faberge Museum

Your guide will pick you up from your hotel and you will head toward the Nevsky prospect, the main artery of Saint-Petersburg. 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. Continue down Griboyedov Embankment past the Singer House (also known as the House of Books) toward another famous Church, the Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, a truly unforgettable sanctuary that reminds many of St. Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow. 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. The highlight of the museum's collection is the group of nine Imperial Easter eggs created by Fabergé for the last two Zar’s of Russia. Your guide will show the most notable pieces of this remarkable collection. The Blue Room of the museum will take your breath away.

Eggs of the Tsar, and more!

This week we had the joy of touring the Faberge Museum in St Petersburg using a Get Your Guide tour group named Tsar Visit and a tour guide named Alexandra Mamontova. Tsar Visit was prompt and professional...emailing me with the guide’s name and meeting details. Alexandra was prompt and professional. She greeted us in the designated meeting spot in a timely manner and was very organized. Her descriptions of the museum, the eggs, history, and the other museum pieces were outstanding. She knew all the details about each piece and discussed each item thoroughly. I had not realized that the museum would have additional pieces other than the actual eggs. It was very nice to learn so much about Faberge and the history the eggs, dishes, belt buckles, clocks, and more! The museum has a cloak room, free storage lockers, a coffee shop, a gift store, and permits photography without flash. We were delighted to have Alexandra as a guide and highly recommend her.

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

Lida was our tour guide and she was AWESOME! She speaks good english and keeps u engaged for 3 hours. She is from St.Petersburg and is very knowledgeable about the city. She has answers to all your questions. Booking was simple on GYG and communication was good prior to the meeting time via whatsapp. I highly recommend this tour.

Ilya, our guide, was excellent. He had great knowledge of the museum, Faberge and Russian history. He was interesting, personable and we felt he enjoyed spending time in the museum with us sharing his knowledge and personal opinion as much as we did. Many thanks Ilya!

The walk in chilled weather was amazing one to do. They do as they write “nothing stops this tour”. The guide Lidia was wonderful and made the tour perfect.
