This tour offers you an opportunity, in half a day, to explore the most remarkable sites of St. Petersburg with minimal walking. A short drive with a brief introduction to the history of St. Petersburg brings you to the city center, the Spit of Vasilievsky Island. Here, enjoy the magnificent view of the Neva River and the Rostral Columns, which in the old days served as signal towers. This stop will give you a perfect chance to take pictures of the Winter Palace and other buildings of the Hermitage Museum, as well as the St. Peter and Paul Fortress. The tour continues with a drive along the Neva River embankments. You'll drive along the main thoroughfare of the city, Nevsky Prospect, towards one of the main landmarks of St. Petersburg – the Church on Spilled Blood. Back on your coach again, head past St. Isaac's Cathedral, another place of great beauty and history, after which you'll take the return drive back to your ship.
Note: No inside visits will be conducted on this tour, there will be photo stops only. The market at the Church of Spilled Blood may be replaced by another souvenir outlet. Tour order may vary. Coach is not wheelchair accessible.

Unfortunately the bus engine was noisy and we struggled to hear the tour guide. Also, there were several Spanish speaking young families on this tour who understandably couldn't follow what was going on as it was in English and they conversed in their own tongue. Although it was excellent in that we saw many of the major tourist attractions, some were repeated from the "Eyes through the Russian People" tour such as the tourist shop stop. I'm glad I saw buildings but I think that the quality of the tour was poor in that the bus was noisy and the stops were rushed. Overall it wasn't good value for money.
