* The City highlights tour takes in the city's most famous and beautiful buildings and historic monuments: the tip of Vasilevsky Island, the log house of Peter the great, the battleship Aurora, Nevsky Prospekt, Arts Square, Ostrovsky Square, the monument to Catherine the Great, the Alexandrinsky Theatre, the Yeliseevsky grocery store, the National Library, the Russian Museum, the Gostinyy Dvor department store, the Kazan Cathedral, the Admiralty, the monument to Peter the Great, the Mariinsky theatre, and St Nicholas' Cathedral . The tour gives a comprehensive view of the historic city centre and acquaints you well with the city. On the way to some suburban estates you will drive through residential areas where the majority of St Petersburg's residents live.
If your party would prefer to see as much as possible we would suggest you to take the BEST OF ST PETERSBURG 2-day tour. Two more museums are added to those listed for the Comfort tour – St Isaac Cathedral and the Church on the Blood, thus making the list of “must see” sights completed!

I have looked at lots of reviews of Alla, and of the other major tour organisations plus the tours organised by Royal Caribbean and I feel that this provides the right tour at the best price for us. I hope some of you out there feel the same. Do get in touch if you feel the same, we would love to have a good group organised for the 2 days!
Alla have said we get a 5% discount off these prices if we form a group online.
