|Start the day with a visit to either the gardens of palatial Peterhof, overlooking the Gulf of Finland in the summer OR Catherine Palace at Tsarskoe Selo in the winter (Pavlosk Palace is viewed if Catherine Palace is closed). We stop for lunch at the popular restaurant, where we enjoy a hearty meal, before exploring inside the beautiful Church on Spilled Blood.|
|Take a step back in time - enjoy a guided tour of the stunning Royal Residences of the Russian Tsars, located in the outskirts of St Pete's and admire the beautiful Russian countryside on the way. Our Catherine Palace (winter) or Peterhof Gardens (summer) bolt on is available on all tours visiting St Petersburg.|
|Head 65 meters underground to the Underground Cold War Museum - a Stalinist-era Soviet Bunker that up until recently was a top secret symbol of Soviet Power. This mighty 75,000-square-foot facility was constructed covertly in the 1950s, to protect the select few against a US nuclear attack. Step back in time to the clandestine and tense era of the Cold War and enjoy an interactive tour of this bunker turned museum, followed by a tour of the most luxurious and extravagant of the Stalinist era metro stations with their marble columns and chandeliers all with an English speaking guide.|
|Escape the bustling city of St Petersburg with an overnight stay in a country house in ancient Novgorod. Your visit begins with a tour of the historic Kremlin (Fortress) grounds and the open air museum of Russian wooden architecture. You’ve free time to admire Novgorod - listed by UNESCO as one of the top 100 cities of the world. Why not soak up the views from a leisurely walk along the Volkhov river, visit one of the great medieval abbeys, or wander round the quaint shops and bars.|

I had a lovely time and really enjoyed my Russia experience. Olga was very friendly and outgoing - pleasure to be around.
An excellent tour.Olga was organized, efficient and calm. Related well to all members of the group and all our needs.
Will be recommending on the go to all my friends. Thanks guys.
I have to say that we could not have had a better choice of guide. Katya was incredible knowledgeable, coordinated, caring and most of all fun. She made this trip full of wonderful memories :-)
Katya was incredible. She really knows Russia and its’ history. From a good beat down at the Banya to the details of seemingly every building in St Pete’s, Moscow and every work of art in the Hermitage… very impressive. I wish I knew this much about Canada.
The tour leader was excellent, covering everything from politics, economics, life in Russia, job industry etc. such an eye opener for the group. Good mix of history and free time and NY partying.
