St. Petersburg Private 3-Day Winter Tour with Troika Ride

*Lunch is included in the price of both group and private tours. We can remove lunches at your request on private tours and reduce the cost by 20 USD per person per day.

Enjoy the impressive must-see highlights like the Hermitage Museum and Winter Palace, Catherine's Palace, the Church of the Savior on the Spilled Blood, Peter and Paul's Fortress and Cathedral, as well as some more off the beaten path gems, like Pavlovsk Palace, the Fabergé Museum and the Russian Museum. Three lunches are included on this tour, each designed to give you a glimpse into local life and local cuisine. You will have time for shopping and, after your visit to Pavlovsk Palace, you will experience a delightful and romantic Troika ride, a sled pulled by 3 horses, through the grounds and park surrounding the palace.

This unique tour offers you the chance to experience St. Petersburg as it truly is: away from the summer crowds. You can expect to soak in the majestic beauty with minimal or nonexistent crowds: truly a once in a lifetime opportunity for such a popular destination like St. Petersburg. 

This tour is designed for visitors staying at a hotel within the city center arriving between October and March.

We do not provide visas for this tour. Please contact the competent authorities and inform yourself if you need a Visa to enter Russia.
