Itinerary

You will be met at the cruise port by your Cruising Excursions representative
A panoramic drive of the city with some photo stops along the way
Souvenir shopping
Return back to the cruise port

Please Note: Tour start time is 10am which is usually 2 hours after your Cruise Ships porting times, if your ship ports later, then the start time will be adjusted to suit your arrival.

Please be aware that you may be advised you cannot disembark the ship until 90 minutes after arrival, we set our times to accommodate this.

All cruise clients taking tours in St Petersburg will require a Visa, Cruising Excursions will arrange this for you at no extra cost.

Your route will take you past the Nevsky Prospect, St Petersburg most famous street. Admire magnificent buildings and palaces, travel past the vast Palace Square, the University Embankment that is lined with buildings of the 18th century, the Admiralty, the famous Bronze Horseman and much more.

In 1703 Peter the Great built a fortress to protect the area from possible attack by the Swedish army and navy. St Peter and Paul Cathedral, dominates the area of the fortress (the height of its spire is 122.50 metres). The Cathedral's magnificent Baroque style interior attracts numerous visitors. Besides the fact that almost all pre-revolutionary rulers from Peter the Great onwards were buried there add more interest to the historical background of this museum.

During the panoramic tour we will get to see one of the most famous museums in the City, a magnificent array of seven buildings 'The Hermitage' also known as the 'Winter Palace', here we will get to see the view of this awe-inspiring building across the Neva river and stop for photo opportunities. We will also get to see the famous Church on Spilled Blood. The Church on Spilled Blood - was built on the spot where the Emperor was mortally wounded. The interior of the Church is decorated with incredibly detailed mosaics designed and created by the most prominent Russian artists of the day (photo opportunities outside only).

At the end of the panoramic city tour you will be able to experience a little free time to souvenir shop before heading back to the cruise ship in plenty of time for your cruise ships departure.
