3-Day Deluxe Tour of St. Petersburg with Faberge Museum

*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.

An extended version of our most popular and comprehensive tour at the most competitive price on the Baltic. The 3-day Deluxe Tour of St. Petersburg includes three full days of visits to most sought-after sites, traditional Russian lunches on all 3 days, a canal boat ride, sightseeing combined with shopping, an expert and personal presentation of the city.

 

Guided Visits:

Hermitage Museum (Winter Palace): Enjoy a guided tour of the museum’s most famous halls, including major highlights such as the Jordan Staircase, the Raphael Loggias, the Pavilion Hall with the famous Peacock clock, and many others, along with the world-class collection of artworks. Our tour is designed to give you a thorough introduction to truly one of the greatest museums in the world.

Does this tour include "early entrance" to the Hermitage Museum?

Hermitage Museum (General Staff Building - Impressionists Collection): This crescent-shaped building situated on Palace Square was built to celebrate the victory over the French in 1812, and was used as the headquarters for the General Staff of the Armed Forces, the Foreign Ministry and the Finance Ministry until 1918. It is now a part of the Hermitage Museum and houses its vast collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings, among others. The collection is world-class, yet the crowds are far fewer at this wing of the museum. 

Fabergé Museum: Located in the Shuvalov Palace, this private museum showcases the world's largest collection of works by Carl Fabergé, including nine of the famous Imperial Easter Eggs.

Church of our Saviour on the Spilled Blood: The iconic Orthodox church where Alexander II was fatally wounded. The richly decorated exterior and the exquisite mosaic interior are a must-see for any visitor to St. Petersburg. 

St. Isaac’s Cathedral: The largest cathedral in St. Petersburg and the fourth largest in the world. St. Isaac's is an awe-inspiring structure from outside and from inside. 

Peter & Paul Fortress and Cathedral: First established in 1703, the original timber fortress was one of the first structures erected in the city. This area has since played an important role in the history of the city and the country, not only for its military significance but also as a political prison and for being the burial site of the Russian Tsars. 

Peterhof Fountain Park and Gardens: The summer residence of Peter the Great, also known as the Russian Versaille. This estate features meticulously maintained gardens and a collection of gold statued fountains that is unlike anywhere else in the world. The Grand Cascade (the park’s centerpiece) features 64 fountains alone, with the Samson statue at its center shooting a powerful jet 20 meters into the sky.

Catherine’s Palace with Amber Room: This Rococo palace was once the summer residence of the Russian Tzars and represents the peak of imperial opulence. A visit wouldn’t be complete without seeing the Amber Room, which has been completed reconstructed in great detail, some say even more exquisitely than the original.

Yusupov Palace: Although not of royal lineage, the Yusupov family was exceptionally wealthy and had great influence in Russia. Their residence, seated on the bank of the Moyka River, showcases ornately designed rooms, stairwells, and a stunning private theatre. A visit to the room where Rasputin was murdered is also included on the tour.
