"We were 4 adults and a 13 year old, it was the most amazing 5 hour tour. The young guide was so knowlegeable, approachable soo friendly. We were treated so well. When we compared our tour with those on our ship that took a huge group tour, we were so glad we made this decision. As they are a registered Tour group, immigration has your name on their list, and everything was easy. No following huge crowds of people. We had such wonderful personal service that cost less than the crowded tours from the Ship. Highly recommended."

The "Grand Tour" offers visitors the opportunity to take as much as possible of the city in a day's sightseeing, from the comfort of a car or a mini van and with a knowledgeable and experienced guide. You will take a complete tour of Saint-Petersburg's most famous sites - beginning with the neo-classical splendour of St.Isaac's Cathedral, geometry of Palace Square, visiting the oldest construction of Saint-Petersburg - the Peter & Paul Fortress and the Cathedral - the burial vault of the Romanovs. Thereafter the gorgeous Church on the Spilled Blood - the second largest mosaic museum in the world. Enjoy the lunch at one of the respected restaurants of the city. In the afternoon a 2-hour guided excursion in the largest museum of Russia and one of the richest museums of the world - The State Hermitage Museum - to finalize your excellent introduction to St.Petersburg. Nowadays, the Hermitage has about 2.7 million exhibits and displays a full range of world art from Ancient Egypt to early 20th century Europe. It includes works by Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Titian, unique collections of Rembrandt, Rubens, French Impressionists. The collection is huge and very exciting. It had been calculated that if you decide to spend only one minute in front of each exhibit, you will have to stay in the Hermitage for 11 years, but on the tour you have the opportunity to see all the great masterpieces of the world's art at a glance in several hours with a comment of a knowledgeable expert-guide.

DAY 2  in Puchkin and Peterhof:    

Unlock the secrets of the world wonder - the Amber Room - during a half-day tour to the magnificent baroque-style Palace of Catherine the Great in the town of Pushkin (Tsarskoe Selo). Feel the spirit of the eras of the powerful empresses- Elizabeth and Catherine walking though the gilded amphelade of the numerous ballrooms and imperial halls, amazing with the luxury of their decoration. All Russian monarchs lived, worked, granted audiences, arranged diplomatic receptions for foreign ambassadors, gala balls and masquerades in the gorgeous halls of the palace. The Catherine Palace enchants and delights everyone. Its azure facades amaze by grandiose sizes, they reflect the unique feature of the Russian national character - emotionality of perception. Both in the winter gray daylight and in the rays of infrequent Petersburg sun, the palace walls, full of expression and internal tension, as though emanate vivacious energy, charging the surroundings with it. The Park surrounding the palace is a wonderful work of the Russian gardening art from the 18th and 19th centuries, combining the masterpieces of architecture with the nature beauty.The tour includes a lunch in a restaurant close to the palace. In the afternoon you will discover Peterhof - St. Petersburg's most famous and spectacular Imperial estate. Located on the sea shore, The Great Palace and park complex of Peterhof with its unique array of fountains is considered to be one of the most beautiful in the world. Peterhof is perhaps St. Petersburg's most famous and luxurous Imperial estate. The Great Palace, filled with fascinating and elaborate interiors, sits on top of a high seashore ridge overlooking the vast Lower Park. The palace at Peterhof sits amidst an enormous park, adorned with fountains, statues and pavilions. The Upper Garden is a typical French-style formal garden with five fountains including one depicting Neptune, the God of the Sea. The estate's Lower Park lies between the Grand Palace and the seashore and boasts the world's largest system of fountains, earning it the title the "Russian Versailles". The park's unique fountain system was designed in the 18th century and doesn't require the use of any pumps to operate the fountains. There are three major cascades and over 140 fountains in the park. The most impressive is the Grand Cascade, located directly below the Great Palace and featuring an impressive golden statue of Samson grasping the mighty jaws of the lion. The park's other cascades feature black and white chess board designs, Chinese dragons and numerous other features are definitely worth seeing!
