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...
(Alexander Pushkin)

Happy Tour
two day mini group tour

(Size of the group: max 15 people)

It's our very special offer for the year 2018. We tried to make this itinerary interesting and exciting but at the same time easy going and really happy. The tour covers all the most important historical and architectural sights of the city as well as the most famous museums but you will be able to see all these places at a comfortable pace. At your choice in the middle of the first day you can have Russian stile lunch or use the same time for shopping. This tour also includes a little treat – degustation of St. Petersburg ice-cream. And last but not least – we did our best to make the price most attractive.

Have a happy tour!
