St Petersburg sightseeing tours give you the perfect way to discover and enjoy our beautiful world heritage city in a number of unique, easy and fun ways.
There's no better way to experience the city's attractions and its famous landmarks, as well as its surroundings than to combine a city guided tour with a boat or a bike ride, or a private bus and a helicopter tour, if you can afford it. And don't worry, you will be walking too!☺
All our St Petersburg Sightseeing Tours allow you to have more time to visit museums, palaces and cathedrals, as well as take photos, go shopping and have lunch or dinner in one of the many St Petersburg Restaurants or cafes around the city.
But, if you're looking for alternative and fun ways to discover St Petersburg, you may like the idea of taking a Segway Ride Tour and glide along Nevsky Prospekt, Palace Square and other streets of the city; or jump on a relaxing Four Wheel Bicycle Tour, perfect for a family with older kids; or even go for a more romantic option like a Horse and Carriage Ride Tour. And if this is not enough, you can even take a Rooftop Tour, and enjoy a nice view of the imperial city from the roof, weather permitting.
For your information, you can find these alternative tours just mentioned on the street of Nevsky Prospekt. Just walk and look around! I like to call them tours on the go because there is no organization behind them.
Whatever way you choose to Tour St Petersburg you'll never miss the key sights, such as the Hermitage, the Church on the Spilled Blood, the Peter and Paul Fortress, or St. Isaac's Cathedral, including some of the stunning parks and rivers and canals because you'll be touring in and around the historical part of the city.
