St Petersburg Transfer Services
TRAVEL INTO THE CITY  swiftly & smoothly
WITH OUR DRIVERS


Welcome to St-Petersburg-Essentialguide.com

Our St Petersburg transfer services are your best choice to get into the city and/or getting around.

Once you've landed at Pulkovo Airport or arrived at one of the main St Petersburg train stations, you'll need to decide how to get into the city. There are a number of city transfer options you can take, such as the public transport system, the official Pulkovo taxi, or a private chauffeured car.

The private chauffeured car it's our top recommendation as this way the driver meets you at your gate takes care of the luggage and drives you directly to your accommodation fast and hassle-free. On the contrary, if you take the public transport system you'll be struggling with your luggage on a congested bus or metro; while if you take the official Pulkovo taxi, you’ll need to find a taxi on arrival, and wait until someone is available to pick you up.

We know that there isn't one best service for everyone, but if you want to avoid the discomfort of public transport and ensure your comfort, efficiency, and safety, then let us help you arrange your St Petersburg airport transfer before you come.
