The grayish granite – her bank's dress...

St. Petersburg adventure - Tour package for families with teens and pre-teens

We believe that kids of this age are old enough to try to explore the city - at least in some particular parts - on their own. So we included 2 quests where they will have to look for their own answers/decisions. Of course our guide as well as the parents will always be nearby and ready to help if necessary. We believe that such activities will not only help teens to learn our history and art but also will teach them to see and think independently and take their own decisions.

We also included several attractions/tours such as the Log house of Peter the Great, Grand Maket Russia and Roof top tour which we consider to be particularly interesting for teens. Beyond that the package includes a few tours which are very similar to general "grown-up" tours but will be a bit adapted to youngsters.

We hope that not only teens but their parents will appreciate the package as well.

From our clients' reviews:

St Petersburg shore tours for families with teenagers

...We had booked a private tour for 4 of us, a family with two daughters (teenagers!). The itinerary was very flexible and children friendly. We toured about 6 hours a day with coffee breaks and as a result covered far more than we expected our children to be able to absorb. Julia, our guide, was fabulous! She introduced all the sights so that we got as much information as the adults could wish to get and at the same time in a way lively and fairytale-like so the kids were thrilled. (Christina S., Seattle, Washington)
