Dear Traveller. Welcome to St Petersburg!
This is a short overview of tours we offer on Sputnik. Please read.

The Classics of St Petesburg

If you want to enjoy the classics of St Petersburg, we recommend you to visit Hermitage , take a personal tour of city center and have a day trip to Peterhof , Versailles of Russian Royal family. These are what you learn about St Petersburg in every guidebook.

Off the beaten track or St Petersburg of Today

If you want to take a look at other side of St Petersburg, we have tours for you as well.
a) Roof top tour is a must. Very unique experience with beautiful panorama of the historical center.
b) Explore cultural spaces for young people where modern culture is emerging. You will find many art galleries, restaurants, bars and local shops.
c) Visit huge century old industrial area to learn more about other side of St Petersburg history.
d) And of course we have a bike tour for all bike lovers (in summer only).

Foodies section

Russian food is not famous in the world. But there is interesting food in the city.
First of all, Uzbek food. There is huge Uzbek immigrant community and they have unique culinary traditions. So please, sign up for Uzbek food tour .
Other very unique and tasty cuisine is Georgian. And Georgian restaurants are scattered all over St Petersburg. Good but pricey restaurant is Mamalyga which is located next to Kazansky cathedral.
For Russian food I would personally recommend you to visit Vkus Est restaurant. They serve so called New Russian cuisine and cook using "local" ingredients from all over Russia.

Not only knowledgeable, Alex was very nice and understanding. Due to the long waiting at the custom control, I arrived the meeting point later than expected but the group was still waiting for me. Definitely a must-do tour.

Alex told me a lot of things related to central asia, I didn't know anything before so it was quite an experience. The uzbiek food is great, it is very similar to the food xinjiang province in China, I enjoyed a lot. After the trip he also gives me information about the city. I really like this trip!

We had an amazing tour with Olga :) she is a lovely guide and even better person ! She provided us with tons of information and tips we never would have found out about by ourselves. We've already been back to some of the places she showed us and they were great ! Thanks again ! <3

If you would like to see a side of St. Petersburg that the regular tours don't take you on please try this one! Irina knew the best vintage shoppes. And my Mother in Law is a foodie. Irina took us to the best place where both of us had a great time. This is different view of St Petersburg and we highly recommend it.
