St Petersburg is a city of never-ending possibilities for the visitor. There are enough palaces and museums to satiate any culture buff’s appetite! Monuments, cathedrals, memorials, parks – the list of attractions is seemingly infinite.
If there is somewhere you have a burning desire to visit that is not to be found in this programme, why not book a private tour. Private tours also provide a more personal experience – with one-to-one service from an excellent, knowledgeable guide – and may particularly appeal to guests who find the pace of organised tours a little difficult to keep, or those who rely on a wheelchair. Unfortunately many venues do have lots of steps, and lifts are a rarity, however on a private tour our guides will do their best to tailor-make the itinerary, considering any difficulties.
For a cost of £65 per hour (for a minimum of 4 hours), you can have your very own car, driver and English-speaking guide, to take you wherever you want to go – you decide. This price, per vehicle, includes entrance to one main museum, and you do not even need to apply for an independent visa! If you use a wheelchair but are able to get in and out of a car, this option could be suitable for you (for those confined to a wheelchair, please see the next paragraph) - please advise at the time of booking.
For a cost of £95 per hour (for a minimum of 4 hours), you can have your very own minivan, driver and English-speaking guide. You customise the tour itinerary! Entrance to one main museum is included in the price. Again, no need to apply for a visa! If an adapted vehicle is required, in order to accommodate your wheelchair, please advise at the time of booking.
PLEASE NOTE: Private tours should be booked in advance of your cruise, through the Shore Tours department at Head Office in Ipswich. E-mail requests can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or please indicate on your booking form that a private tour is required and send separate details of what you would like to see and how long you would like the vehicle, although there is scope to change your plans on the day. After all, we realise that once you are in the fascinating city of St Petersburg, it might be too difficult to decide!
