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...

NB! In case of very bad weather or any other extraordinary situations hydrofoils wouldn't run. In such case the cost of the itinerary will be recalculated.

If you are eager to see more than just one Russian city even if it is the most beautiful one, you are on the right page. We designed this shore excursion package for very brave and energetic people who are ready to get up very early, spend 4 hours in the train each way and – last but not the least – ready to pay for all this as – honestly speaking – it is not a budget offer. Yet, the chance to see Moscow is worth all this! No doubt, our Grand Russian Tour will give you much deeper insights into Russia – its history and culture – than any other shore excursions.

Have a great trip and enjoy Russia!
