The State Hermitage Museum is one of the largest art museums in the world that occupies more than 350 exhibition halls. The ceremonial interiors of the palace occupy a special place. The collection of more than 3M works of arts is located in 5 buildings of the main complex. It consists of painting, graphics, sculpture and objects of applied art, archaeological finds and numismatic material.

During a sightseeing tour of the Hermitage you will visit the main halls of the museum, which are reached via the magnificent Jordanian stairs. The route passes through the Small and Big Throne Halls, Field Marshal and Coat of Arms Halls. You will admire the paintings of great artists: Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Leonardo da Vinci, Rembrandt; with your own eyes appreciate the skill of the great sculptors Michelangelo, Edgar Degas, Rodin. You will see the legendary museum exhibits: the 19-ton Kolyvan vase that is called the «Queen of Vases» and the «Peacock» watch.

After the main complex of the State Hermitage you have a chance to join a mini-group for visiting The Treasure Gallery: the Gold Room or the Diamond Room (extra fee).

Transfer to Peterhof (by car)

Welcome to Peterhof – an unforgettable capital of fountains! This is a magnificent suburban residence of Russian tsars, founded by Peter the Great in 1705 on the shore of the Gulf of Finland. There are more than 100 fountains in Peterhof: that is the reason for a nickname – Russian Versailles. The Lower Park, with the majority of all the fountains, is a unique hydraulic structure that works thanks to a simple and brilliant system without the use of any pumps. This is a real decoration of Peterhof. It is just impossible to imagine the Grand Palace and the Park without hundreds of water jets – the key feature of the entire ensemble. The architectural dominant of the residence, the Grand Palace, acquired its famous baroque front door thanks to the architect B. Rastrelli in the middle of the XVIII century. On the tour you will see the royal halls and the exquisite rich interior decoration of the palace.

Free time for lunch is included in the tour schedule.

Duration: 9 hours.

My trip to St Petersburg was short but amazing not only due to the city itself but as well due to this Agency, Natalia and my brilliant guide Victoria.

I had only a weekend in November 2018 to explore this amazing city and very specific interests in art history and architecture. I did not have time to plan it myself properly, so I just shortly explained to Natalia what I would like to see. In very short period of time Natalia offered me a great two days itinerary that blended my wishes ideally - and for a very good price as well. Besides this, having my first experience of St Petersburg with my guide Victoria, it was an exceptional one. Victoria spoke fluent English and had impressive knowledge of St Petersburg, Russian art and culture. In addition, she was very passionate about both the city and her job. I learned a lot from her. The whole trip was organized perfectly and I enjoyed every minute of it. I am learning Russian now - I think this says a lot what kind of experience I had.

I am sure I will come back to St Petersburg and as well to this Agency that I would recommend to everybody who would like to have a special and genuine experience of St Petersburg.
When they say that they care about their customers' experience and that they have knowledge of the city, Russian art, culture and any other area of interest connected with their service, they are among the rare that are telling the truth! They really do. Besides they are true locals! They have an office in the St Petersburg and people who work in this Agency live there. It is not that their Customer Service is placed in the other part of the world while arranging for you a local experience on the other part of the world.

On April 27, 2018, we ordered a boat trip for a group of 12 French tourists. The trip was a perfect ending to our stay in Saint Petersburg. Tha navigations season had just begun and we were lucky with fine weather. It was a pleasure to see the canals, admire the beautiful streets and historical buildings again. Elena, the guide, made a wonderful excursion, all the tourists were satisfied.

By the way, we were late for the trip for 30 minutes, and I’d like to thank Elena and the boat crew for waiting. We’ll be glad to purchase trips in your company again.
