Two very different yet profoundly Russian capitals

  • Each city is distinctly unique and offers its own blend of historic monuments and present-day life
  • By visiting St. Petersburg's royal palaces and Moscow's stately Kremlin with the world-famous Red Square you will get a Russia experience like no other

Travel in comfort

  • A luxury private tour of Moscow awaits you complete with your own tour guide, private transfers in both cities and VIP entry to all sights
  • Moscow is just a short train ride away from your cruise ship and these days you can travel very comfortably between both cities
  • We will even provide our representative who will travel together with you to ensure your Moscow adventure goes according to plan!

Use your time in Russia wisely

  • Visiting Moscow and St. Petersburg on a single trip is a great way to enhance your once-in-a-lifetime visit to Russia
  • Save money on two separate trips and see way more that your fellow cruisers ever will!
spend two days in St. Petersburg and one day in Moscow

Roll like a Russian! / Moderate


We invite you to feel yourself like a Russian by experiencing everyday life of people living in St. Petersburg.

"It is difficult to do business with someone so far away, prepaying a tour package, and then being sure that all will go according to plan. I am pleased to tell you that everything exceeded our anticipation. As an outsider, of course, the sites and culture of your city are most interesting, but one travels to other countries to learn more about the people and what life is like for them. We received all of this and more. Once again, thank you very much for arranging a most interesting 2 days in Saint Petersburg for us."

Gerald Rothman, USA

"We had a wonderful time and were able to tell our fellow passengers how most of the things they just looked at from the outside actually were when we went inside them. We certainly managed to see far more than they were able to and learn so much about St. Petersburg too. Our grateful thanks to you for a fantastic 2 days in your city and for making our time in St. Petersburg memorable."

David and Carole Ferdinando, USA

"We wanted to thank you for making sure that our time in St Petersburg was so wonderful. Valentina was a fantastic guide - you could not have chosen a better guide. She was so knowledgeable and we really enjoyed our days with her. The itinerary was perfect and we got to see so much - and thanks to Valentina, we also learned so much. Thank you again - it was a perfect two days and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and just love your city."

Sharon Davidson, Canada

"We all thoroughly enjoyed our 2 day visit to St. Petersburg. Marina, our guide, was superb. She was very knowledgeable and told us about the history of St. Petersburg, the palaces, the czars, just everything. We were so fortunate to able to take a private tour, because we saw much more than the tours offered by the cruise line. I would highly recommend your company to anyone traveling to St. Petersburg"
