One Day Light Shore Excursion

One Day Light Shore Excursion

One Day Light Shore Tour
Tour Overview:
One Day Light Shore Tour is for travelers who want to see the city and explore it leisurely. It is perfect for senior travelers, second time travelers and big family travel. The itinerary is not overwhelming and includes the must-sees and some time on your own.
  • Take a tour around the city on a private car.
  • Visit the Church on Spilled Blood.
  • Visit Peter and Paul Fortress
  • Enjoy free time in St Petersburg shopping or walking with your guide
  • Tour Details:
    The first part of the tour includes a visit to Peter and Paul fortress and the Cathedral. There you will see the Romanov family burial vaults and learn more about the royal Russian dynasty. Most of the Romanovs are buried there. You will also take a look at the Peter and Paul fortress itself. It used to be a prison for revolutioners and political opposition.

    The Church on Spilled Blood gives an overview of the most dramatic time in Russian history – the end of the XIX century and the beginning of the XX century. See the spot where Alexander II was assassinated.
    After 3 hours city tour to the fortress and cathedrals, you will have some free time in the city. You may go for a walk in the city center, drink a cup of Russian tea with “pirrogi”, go to a local market, visit one of the metro stations of St. Petersburg or do some shopping. Our experienced guide and driver will accompany and advise you.

    The tour is visa-free for cruise ship passengers docking in St. Petersburg for less than 72 hours. Red Sun Tours is a licensed tour operator in the Russian Federation and has a legal right to offer visa-free shore excursions for cruise ship passengers.

    The itinerary is made flexible to fit in any timing you have. It also includes all the must-sees so leaving St Petersburg you will visit all the popular places. We can also customize it for hotel stayers.

    We booked for a group of 5 including my parents who are 80 years old. Elena, who runs the tour company, was our guide. Her English is perfect and her local knowledge amazing. She loves her city and it’s history. We had a car and driver for the day. He was really helpful too. We went to the Fortress and a church in the morning then lunch in a very untouristic cafe. It was really authentic food and great value. We then went to the Hermitage museum in the afternoon. She had it all organised. No waiting in the long queue. We had a drive around the city to see lots of other places of interest before we went back to the cruise ship. Listening to the other people who did tours of St Petersburg we definitely got a much better experience than a large group.
    I would highly recommend RedSun Tours for customised trips especially if you have children or adults who need a trip tailored to keep everyone interested.
