St. Petersburg Shore Excursion: Small-Group 2-Day Visa-Free Tour Including Boat Ride
From US$298,87
It’s easy to explore St. Petersburg while your cruise ship is docked in the city’s port with this 2-day shore excursion. This experience saves you time and money by combining skip-the-line admission tickets to main attractions—including the Hermitage, Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, and Yusupov and Catherine’s palaces—transportation to and from attractions, a canal boat ride, and authentic Russian lunches each day.
What to Expect
This St. Petersburg tour takes off when your cruise ship docks at the St. Petersburg Cruise Port. Please note that crowding at the port can affect the actual departure time of this tour. Your bus will depart once all passengers are present.

Some of the main highlights of this 2-day guided tour include the Hermitage, Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, Peter and Paul Fortress, Yusupov Palace, and Catherine’s Palace and Park. You’ll get admission tickets and skip-the-line access.

Don’t worry about navigation, as the tour includes round-trip transportation from your cruise ship to the sights. On the way, your guide will tell you historical facts and other interesting information about St. Petersburg. Each day, enjoy a traditional Russian lunch in between activities.
