If you are visiting St. Petersburg, the best way to do it is with a private guide. Sergey is wonderful to work with and helped us plan a 2 day private tour for 6 people. Absolutely worth the money as it includes the visa fees, transportation, and early admission to many sites. Maria our guide was wonderful and knew all the Russian history details. Really made us want to learn more. Great communication and very easy in every way. Thank you Sergey and Maria!
