I love you, Peter’s great creation,
I love your view of stern and grace,
The Neva wave’s regal procession,
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.
