What to expect
  • There are some different ways to getting to know the city , if not just seeing its main sights. We created this tour for not just visiting the city with sight of tourists, but for understanding and feeling the city like citizens. During the walking tour, you can appreciate the wonderful places, squares, cathedrals, with having time to lunch, and after it continue of visiting other churches, panoramas, architectural ensembles. Be prepared to find real treasures of the city. Going to Nevsky Prospekt,the main avenue of the city, full of shops, the best restaurants, churches and majestic palaces. You will appreciate famous Gostiny Dvor , one of the oldest and most beloved mall by citizens. Next stop will be – the Armenian Church which belongs to the early classical period. As first citizens of S.Petersburg were foreigners that's why in the center, and on Nevsky Prospect, you can see the churches of different religions. Further,visiting Kazan Cathedral – you will learn something new about the Russian religion, the internal structure of the Russian Church. Although Cathedral looks like St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican – is the main Cathedral of St. Petersburg. We will see also – The Grand hotel Europe – one of the best hotels in Petersburg, harmonious Fine Arts Square ,an interesting from the point of view that all the magnificent palaces located on it are used today as museums, theaters and concert halls. Finally is worth visiting – the Savior on Spilled Blood, the church built at the request of his son, on the site of the assassination of the Russian Emperor Alexander 2. The church was built in the neo-Russian style, with gilded and colored domes. Inside – a rich decoration of the walls from top to bottom covered with mosaics. Walking along small pedestrian streets, we shall go to the heart of the city – the Palace Square. The place of 3 Russian revolutions,which so strongly influenced the life of the country. The size of the area is more than 5 hectares,it is famous for different celebrations and concerts . We shall go to the Peter and Paul Fortress. St. Petersburg*s subway is one of the most beautiful and deepest in the world. It is decorated with marble and mosaics, truly impressive. Peter and Paul Fortress – a unique historical place of the city, built as a military fortress, but eventually turned into a prison for political prisoners. Peter and Paul Cathedral – the tallest building of the city, the burial place of the Romanov dynasty – from the founder of the city Peter the 1 to Nicolas the 2.

Good but could be better!
Mar 2019 • Couples
We arrived in St Petersburg having spent a few days in Moscow and having done a private tour there as well so comparisons in terms of the guide and the tour were inevitable. St Petersburg is a beautiful city and relatively easy to get round on foot much of the time or by Metro. The city tour by our guide Dasha was very good - she spoke excellent English, was very amenable, personable and informative - I had absolutely no problem with her at all. The issue I have is with the tour content...and what additional payments we had to make. Even with a coffee break - we completed it in approx 5 hours / not 6 hours and to get to the Peter & Paul Fortress (which is worth visiting) we had to pay for the metro costs and the entrance fees!! Really??? The cost of this tour was significant enough without expecting customers to cough up for more. In Moscow - the city tour was what it said covering all entrance fees for the buildings we visited and all metro fees - his company ought to think about doing the same!!

Good afternoon, se were sorry to hear, that you were not satisfied with the tour you had on the 28th of march. The walking tour had lasted 6 hours and you've seen everything you were planned to see and even more,as we know,you were guided inside Peter and Paul cathedral, that is not included in the program. All the tickets,exept for the PP cathedral were provided by your guide. We still hope,that the city left a good impression,and you will return back somehow. Best regards, citycome team

Excellent walking tour with LIDA
I had the privilege to be taken on the excellent walking tour through St Petersburg by Lida. She was enthusiastic, extremely knowledgeable, prepared to go the extra mile and even gave advice on tasty Russian snacks! Highly recommended!

Great guided walk around lovely St Petersburg with the lovely Lydia
Aug 2018 • Couples
We had a great time with Lydia (aka Lida, who was our leader). The walking tour is always a good way to see a town and our leader was very knowledgeable and happy to answer all our questions. We have had other tour leaders in other cities who want to stick to their script, which can be boring for everybody, whereas Lydia not only taught us about the sights but also more generally about Russian culture. She was fantastic and we say thank you to her again.

Excellent tour with LIDA
Jun 2018 • Solo
i took that tour during the FIFA world cup.Upon arrival in front of the monument of Catherine the Great (the meeting point) I was welcomed by my tour guide Lida, my name was mentioned on the board and I felt welcomed with such a friendly atmosphere where we had a great start.

Lida is such a very friendly,warm person and highly motivated, informative guide (I recommend). I really enjoyed a six hour walk through the city of St.Petersburg that past very quickly without feeling it.

The atmosphere is so special that it really feels like home to me.

Lida gave me many recommendations of things to do or any place I want to go and how to go.
All respect to xxx for the great job, a true sample of a great, excellent tour guide.

Many thanks again and I recommend Lida and CityCome - day tours to everyone

Apr 2018 • Friends
This was a great tour of the St Petersburg city centre, and we were fortunate to have an excellent tour guide. Daria took us to all of the main historical sites, and gave engaging descriptions with just the right level of detail. She was highly knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. Above all, Daria was friendly, had a great sense of humour, and just made the entire experience really pleasant. Thanks so much Daria!
