Tour Details:
This tour combines all the St Petersburg tourist attractions. Your guide will meet you at the port terminal and together you will drive to Peterhof Fountains in a mini van. In Peterhof you will see the Grand Cascade and the statue of Samson covered in gold. There are hundreds of fountains to see. Some of them are hidden and it takes some time to discover them which makes the tour a true adventure. You will also see the Peterhof Palace (no visit inside) which adds to the landscape a resemblance with Versailles. Peterhof Fountains are top-10 St Petersburg Russia attractions listed in TripAdvisor.
When the Peterhof tour ends you will drive to the Catherine Palace, the summer residence of the Russian royal family – the Romanovs. It is the finest example of Russian Baroque. The palace is flooded with decorations and shines with gold. You will also see the Amber Room There which was fully restored after the WWII.
The first day ends with a walk in the Catherine Park among gorgeous statues and endless mazes of trees.
The second day starts with a metro ride. St Petersburg metro is one of the most beautiful in the world. Some stations are covered with glass and marble, others with steel statues and mosaics.
You will visit St Peter and Paul Fortress and Cathedral where the Romanovs are buried. St Isaac’s Cathedral and Our Savior on Blood Church are probably the most beautiful cathedrals in the world. You will visit them and have a tour inside.
One of the biggest museums in the world – The Hermitage Museum is waiting for you on this tour as well. It stores a vast collection of European art including Leonardo Da Vinci and Titian. Every traveler coming to St Petersburg visits the Hermitage Museum. Enjoy the museum on the skip-the-line tour with a professional Red Sun Tours guide.
This Guaranteed Departure 2-Day Small Group Shore Tour represents the best of St Petersburg tourism. Don’t miss a chance to get your tour in advance and enjoy every moment of it during your stay there.

Red Sun Tours exceeded our expectations  

We enjoyed our tour of St. Petersburg with Red Sun Tours. Elena was our guide. She was so enthusiastic, constantly watching us to see what we were interested in. She answered all our questions with patience and detail. The pace of the tour was just right so we could see everything what was plan without rush. We really enjoyed the details that she shared of her life; later we all agreed that Elena seemed more like a friend than just our guide. Her gentle sense of humour kept us all engaged when we began get tired. I have to say that seeing St. Petersburg with Elena was one of the highlights of my life

A great adventure through St. Pete

I went on a tour through Red Sun Tours booked through another travel agent. I was part of a group of 28 geocachers. My travel agent had used Elena last year and she knew we'd have a great time again! We had two days in St. Pete with our Royal Caribbean cruise. We had a great time exploring the city and Elena always knew the best spots for clean and free bathrooms and great meals. We could have spent the full 2 days exploring the Hermitage, but we only have 1.5 hours - Elena got us by all the highlights and a few spots I noticed other people were missing. This was a great tour and visit. I would highly recommend Red Sun Tours for anyone visiting St. Pete!

Our wonderful tour of St. Petersburg  

We were on a Baltic cruise and wanted a private, in-depth tour of St. petersburg for the 2 days we were there. We try to avoid ship-sponsored excursions, which have 40 and more people. We researched different independent companies and Trip Advisor reviews and decided on red Sun Tours since they were prompt to respond, had a good itinerary and were a good price.
The whole experience was wonderful! The guide Katya and driver Alexey were fantastic. We had a small air-conditioned van that was very comfortable and clean with Wi Fi on board. Katya was very knowledgeable about all the sights on the tour and made our two days very pleasurable. Alexey was friendly, prompt and always could pick us up a few steps from the museum doors.Because our tour was private we could try delicious local food at an authentic (not touristic) restaurant.There were many other tour groups also sightseeing, but we never had problems with entering attractions as we had skip-the-line tickets. it was also much easier to find restroom stops.
We talked to other passengers who had taken the ship's tours and heard about large size groups and lines to the museums.
We were very pleased with Red Sn Tours and would recommend them to everyone.
