Spend two days exploring St. Petersburg on a guided tour when your ship pulls into port. With a guide handling navigation and transportation, visit landmarks such as the Peter and Paul Cathedral, the Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, Peterhof, and the Catherine Palace and Park, hearing in-depth commentary about each place along the way. Enjoy early access to the popular Hermitage, meaning you don’t have to deal with the pesky crowds.

If Catherine palace is not available, you will see one of the gems of Peterhof – Monplaisir Palace, Bath Block, Grotto, Cottage Palace, Marly Palace

Unless you speak Russian, St. Petersburg can be a difficult city to navigate on your own. Make the most of your time in Russia’s second city during a 2-day tour that provides an ideal introduction to first-time visitors. Plus, hotel or port pickup and drop-off on each day ensures you don’t have to worry about finding a meeting point.

First-time visitors to St. Petersburg who want to experience some of the city's highlights will love this comprehensive tour. You'll focus on highlights in the city center (like the Peter and Paul Fortress), as well as summer residences a bit further afield (such as Peterhof and Catherine's Palace). You'll see and do a lot in a short time, and get a good overview of the history and culture of St. Petersburg.

Be swept up by a wonderful evening of classical Russian artistry with a ticket to a ballet performance in St Petersburg. Russian ballet is widely considered the world’s best, and St Petersburg one of its greatest stages, making watching a ballet here a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience. Depending on availability and timings, take your seat at one of the city’s historical theaters for a glittering classical ballet such as ‘Swan Lake,’ ‘Giselle,’ or ‘The Nutcracker’ — the production you will see will be confirmed on the day. Round-trip transport included.

Well we were 4 adults so we put roubles in an envelope for the guide and driver. But with2 kids I imagine a tip on the adults price would be fine . I’m sure they are happy with either denomination.
