TOUR DESCRIPTION
 

St. Petersburg Shore Excursion

This St. Petersburg shore trip visits the famous Peterhof including the Grand Palace and the Lower Park with it's fountains. Built to rival France's palace at Versailles, you are sure to be impressed. At the end of the tour you enjoy free time for lunch.

After passing through customs at the port you meet your private licensed guide and depart for Peterhof, St. Petersburg's most famous and spectacular estate, a jewel of Russian art. This town of parks, palaces and fountains was called Petrodvorets in the past. The Grand Palace was built by Peter the Great and became the exquisite summer residence of the Russian tzars. The location on the shore of the Baltic Sea made it an ideal place in the warm summer months. From the Great Palace three monumental cascading fountains lead to the Lower Park, a real masterpiece in itself, with 173 fountains on its grounds.

At the end of the tour you can enjoy lunch (meal not included) before you return to the ship.

Mobility: NO wheelchairs

Special Note- Your cruise line may tell you that you must purchase an expensive Russian tourist visa to get off the ship if you are not taking their big bus tour. This is not true. The visa they refer to is only for passengers who plan to go ashore unaccompanied by an authorized guide. With the Visa-Free Entry Voucher our partners in Russia provide, you are required to depart and return to the port with the tour we have organized for you. You do not have the option to stay in St. Petersburg and return to the ship on your own. Visa-Free Entry Vouchers are sometimes called a "blanket visa".

Four Week Notice- To obtain the needed Russian Tourist Visas we can only accept reservations with a minimum of four weeks notice.
