Walk with me along the river Neva embankments, where every stone remembers the past. Enjoy a breathtaking view from its bridges and solid granite embankments that don't exist anywhere else in the world.

Find out about the history of Peter's creation. Was he right when he willed into existence his "paradise on earth", counting the cost of thousands of human lives in the process of his reforms? These reforms were intended to socialize a barbaric Russian population and train them in new European ways. Starting from Trinity square, which was one of the first official centers of the city under protection of the Peter and Paul Fortress, see how it moved to Basil and Admiralty islands after that. You will be able to see the Palace embankment, Admiralty embankment, English embankment and much more. As Peter the I wanted everyone to use boats and would not let anyone to build a bridge before his death, so you shall have a boat trip on the Neva.

A visit of Peter and Paul fortress is included or another museum of your choice We can visit city history museum inside Peter and Paul fortress and see .the development of St.Petersburg during first two centuries of its development. And if that's not enough and weather permitting, take a boat ride along the channels to see it all from the vantage point of water level .

We have been introduced to Saint Petersburg by Igor, who has guides us over the course of three days in this wonderful city. Igor is able to provide you rich details about the city, with very extensive knowledge about architecture, art and the city's history. Through the use of headphones you will be able to hear what Igor has to say, while giving yourself the opportunity to look around at your own pace. Igor is very flexible in organising the tours by adapting to your needs and wishes. Do not expect jokes or a lot of energy, but pay close attention and you will have great insight into the city. Thank you!

Very " rich" tour ; very complete ; our guide was very well informed except about the museum opening hours ... ;-) but he had so many other informations to share .. that was fine.
It is a very long day... very good shoes are requested ! but walking is such a nice way to discover the town..

I really enjoyed my tour to St Petersburg with Igor.
He was able to tailor my tour to include a comprehensive historical tour of Dostoevsky's St Petersburg.

The tour was very detailed, yet flexible.

St Petersburg is a great city with so much history, I plan to return again one day.
