One-Day Active Tour of St. Petersburg is aimed to show you the best of St. Petersburg attractions in one day: the Hermitage, Peterhof Fountains, the Spilled Blood Church. It is perfect if you want to squeeze the maximum out of your short stay. The tour starts with a cruise port pickup. Heading 20 miles out of the city to the parks of Peterhof, you will enjoy the exteriors of the Peterhof Palace and walk in the park filled with glittering gold fountains (there are around 150 of them). There you will see the Grand Cascade of Peterhof and the Samson Fountain.
Returning to St. Petersburg city center you will take a comprehensive tour of the Hermitage Museum (the Impressionists Collection is not included). The tour lasts for 2 hours and is run by a professional art historian. Plunge into the world art and listen to the stories of the Romanovs in the state rooms of the Winter Palace. We’ll begin our visit with the main complex – the Winter Palace. Here, we'll start with a thorough overview of the Romanovs history and the palace’s construction. Then, we'll traverse the halls of the museum as we head to Leonardo Da Vinci’s masterpieces, where we’ll discuss his work.
