St. Petersburg & Moscow: 3-Day Russian Experience

*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.

This tour combines our most popular tour- the 2 Day Deluxe Tour with a tour in Moscow on the 2nd day in port, giving our guests opportunities for sightseeing and shopping and most importantly an all-inclusive and comprehensive glimpse at the largest cities in Russia: St. Petersburg and Moscow. In addition to seeing the big highlights in St. Petersburg, you will see the world-famous Red Square and Kremlin in Russia's capital Moscow*.

We don't recommend this tour for guests with mobility issues. As an alternative, we suggest a private tour.

This tour is not recommended for wheelchair users, and if a person with a wheelchair decides to participate they must have a personal helper to assist in boarding/disembarking the vehicle, entering restrooms, restaurants, and all sites. At certain locations, a wheelchair user may not be able to exit the bus and may have to stay inside the bus.
