This Three-day Standard Shore tour is for those who want to see the city and explore it leisurely. On the sightseeing tour, you will see the most beautiful part of the city, learn more about its history, see the cradle of St Petersburg and all its famous palaces. On the tour of Catherine Palace with the Amber room and Catherine Park (can be replaced by the tour of Oranienbaum or the tour of Kronstadt), you will see the royal summer residence, its parks, and unforgettable architecture.

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