Full description
Illuminations tour along the spectacular floodlit monuments. Magical and magnificent by night, a drive through Saint Petersburg and its beautiful illuminated buildings should not be missed by any visitor of the northern capital. This excursion combines a sightseeing drive to those landmarks of the city which are getting most fascinating when the night is getting on - the most gorgeous palaces and squares of Saint Petersburg at night. In summertime you will have the opportunity to enjoy the romantics of the White Nights, observing the opening of the numerous drawbridges. During White Nights, when a faint twilight takes the place of night darkness, the streets, squares and embankments acquire a unique charm. Though the period of White Nights is short and comes to the end in July, it doesn't mean that the charm of St. Petersburg's night disappears. The city dominated by water still offers its guests many possibilities of feeling its beauty.

enchanting

Though we were a bit tired, Glen the young quide charmed us with his knowledge and experience. The sights at night had added beauty..It was cold but we managed to come out of the vehicle to take some pictures. After the tour the guide and driver took us to an Indian restaurant quite near to hotel where we were staying.

Interesting and informative tour

Friendly guide. Using a mini-van to get around was great! Unfortunately our information regarding the hotel was not passed to the guide. Therefore the tour started 30min late. However, the 30min were added in the end of the tour and the tour company was also available by phone and solved the issue immediately.

Not much of a good trip

The route planning was not well thought of. We kept going round and round on same streets. Excuse was "traffic" which was not visible! We got tired of watching same uninteresting Illit streets again and again. The guide was not well informed herself. We had to keep asking her about Palace Square Peter and Paul Fortress. She made it quite boring and extremely unenjoyable, finishing in 2.30 hours which was to be a 3 hour trip. Keenly expected to see the bridges opening. Nothing ! Had to beg to make stops. Poor
