TIPS AN RECOMMENDATIONS


  • We recommend that you book any of our best St Petersburg Tours before the summer season starts because summer is considered high season, so finding a local guide available at the last minute is not doable. 
  • When booking ahead, you are guaranteed to find the best local guide, get the best price, and avoid long queues at the entrance of museums or palaces as we'll buy the tickets in advance.
  • Usually 8hrs are recommended to cover all the sites without rushing.
