Catherine Palace is a rather challenging museum to get into and Red Sun Tours has exclusive access to the museum!

You can also read more about the Catherine Palace following the link to the Catherine Palace Tour.

Touring to Peterhof Lower Gardens and amazing Grand Cascade you will see a unique fountain system which remains the same as it was designed hundreds of years ago.

On the way to the Peterhof Gardens

Peterhof Fountains are also called one of the Wonders of the World.

The fountain complex is designed entirely on natural water pressure so the pipe system can’t be broken. For centuries it brought joy and fascination to millions of people. Become one of them!

The Hermitage museum (can be replaced with the tour of the Russian museum) is a precious pearl of Russia. It stores more art exhibits than any museum in the world and attracts millions of tourists every year. Of all the places in Russia, this is the first one to visit.

On the third day in the afternoon, you may have some free time in the city. You may go for a walk in the city center, drink a cup of Russian tea with “pirogi”, go to the farmer’s market or do some shopping. Our experienced guide and driver will accompany you and advise the places.

We highly recommend Elena Semenova and Red Sun Tours. Elena was recommended to us by our neighbors, and we'll never be able to thank them enough. Our three days in St. Petersburg with Elena and her husband, who drove us safely everywhere, was the highlight of our entire European trip. Elena's personality and warmth, her competence and professionalism and her knowledge of Russia and its history, art and architecture made our experience as perfect as it gets. She's a highly experienced professional guide, which will be obvious within minutes of meeting her. And, her English is excellent (her mother was an English teacher). Because of her passion for her country and its history, Elena helps you to really understand and feel the perspective of someone who loves her native country. Contact Elena. You'll thank us!

3 beautiful days to discover St Petersburg

Elena was our guide for 3 days last April. Our visits alternated palaces, museums, churches, parks and local curiosities. The balance between cultural and historical monuments and sightseeing activities was perfect for a family with 2 young teenage daughters (11 & 16). Elena is extremely knowledgeable about History and Arts and she is able to captivate her audience at all times, even after 6 hours of visits.
She is also eager to share her personal memories of the Soviet era which is a great experience for Western visitors. She took us dining in some fancy elegant and classic Russian restaurants as well in typical inns where only you are only surrounded by only locals. This was an unbeatable true Russian gastronomic experience.
Elena gave us the perfect introduction for Russia ( we went on to Moscow) and we are impatient to come back to St Petersburg and see the rest of the multitude of beautiful treasures the city has still to offer. Thank you Elena for making us enjoy Russia so much.
