St Petersburg Private Guide for a Walking Tour

St. Petersburg Guided Tours

St Petersburg private guide without a car (for a walking tour) might be a good option for  fit travelers who prefer to “walk the city”.  You can walk down the streets, people-watch and window-shop, visit something very off-the-beaten-track of focus on art and spend the whole day exploring the Hermitage treasures or see Russian icons and Russian Impressionists, relax in the picturesque parks and gardens or take the Neva river and canal boat cruise, explore the local markets and food places or go to the Russian sauna and have Russian vodka sample-tasting for lunch. There are lots of things you can see and do that skip attention of small and big group tours heading only for the most famous. 

Before you go for this option please take into consideration St. Petersburg weather conditions and long distances between the sights. 

St Petersburg Walking Tour details

The suggested tour duration is from 10 a.m. till 6 p.m. However it’s your custom tour and it’s entirely up to you to decide how long your tour day should be, how many tour days you would like to have, whether you would like to add evening or night tours, etc. Just let me know your wishes and preferences and I will compose a personalized custom tour for you.  

At 10 a.m. your St Petersburg private guide will be waiting for you at your hotel lobby. Your St Petersburg walking tour will start with the district around your hotel. You decide where you’d like to go and what you’d like to see. If the sights are distantly-located, you will use public transport system – metro, bus or trolleybus – your guide will consult you on which one is more convenient from the point of view of the tour. 

Some museums are easy to pay on the spot, others require prior arrangements (such as the Hermitage, Yusupov Palace). Let me know if you have specific museums/activities on your list and I’ll advise on which things need to be pre-arranged. 


The price below is to give you an idea of the tour cost. If you decide to have a shorter or longer tour day, or several days instead of just 1 – I’ll recalculate.
