Day Wise Itinerary

Welcome Dinner + Russian Folklore Show

Touchdown St. Petersburg! You'll arrive at the treasure trove of Russian art and culture, with magnificent palaces and cathedrals strewn all over the city.

After checking into the hotel, relax until evening or just go for a short walk.

At night, you will head to Nikolayevsky Palace, an architectural masterpiece made for Emperor Nikolay's first son. Walking through this palace is like witnessing the last 100 years of St Petersburg.
Get acquainted with Russian tradition by watching a classical quartet, a classical performance of folk songs accompanied with fascinating dances.

Afterwards: a welcome dinner! Tonight's festive atmosphere will be perfect to bond with your new crew.

Optional ($20 per person): a midnight cruise! See St. Petersburg come alive at night, lit up in a beautiful way. You’ll also see its bridges draw up as you cruise down the river.

St.Petersburg 101 + Dinner With The Locals

After breakfast, get ready for an insider's tour of St Petersburg.

Russia's Imperial capital will captivate you with its grandeur, as you walk by its mansions, palaces and museums.

With more than 300 bridges over its canals, the city draws comparisons to the famed Venice of Italy. Just walking along these timeless canals is an experience in itself.

In the afternoon: you’ll have free time to explore the city. Recommended: walk along St.Petersburg’s famed canals or spend some time in one of the city’s pristine beaches.

Later: dinner with a local family. Enjoy conversations and authentic fare featuring salads, potatoes and a range of meat, and learn about the Russian cuisine & traditions.

The Palace Of Gold + Canal Cruise

This morning, explore Peterhof (UNESCO World Heritage Site), a series of beautiful palaces and gardens. Don’t forget to check out the 16m high cliff that overlooks the Neva river here.

In the afternoon: time for a canal cruise! Get a different perspective of the city as you cruise leisurely past colourful cathedrals, grand palaces and bridges.

Afterwards, we will return back to our hotel and you'll be free for the rest of the evening.

Bullet Train Ride To Moscow

After breakfast, check out from your hotel and start your journey to the capital - Moscow. 

Then: board the ‘sapsan’ (bullet train), the fastest way to get to the capital by land. This smooth, comfortable ride promises picturesque views and a great time.Afterwards, you’ll have free time to relax and shop. 

In the evening: dinner at a popular local restaurant.

Moscow 101 + The 'People's Palace'

This morning, immerse yourself in Moscow’s culture, architectural splendour and history, on an expert-guided tour of the city.

Then: head to Sparrow Hills, the best place in Moscow for panoramic views of the city. Its sits on top of a green hill, on the banks of the Moskva River. The hill has a beautiful park and an observation platform from where you can enjoy gorgeous 360-degree views of the city.

Later: an insider’s tour of arguably the world’s most beautiful station - the Moscow Metro. With magnificent sculptures, impressive mural mosaics of Russian victories, stained glasses and arched ceilings, the subway looks nothing short of a palace. Stroll through the main stations with a guide and learn about its stories, secrets and urban legends.

Optional (USD 30/person) : if you are one of the adventurous types, then don’t miss out on the opportunity to do some shooting using the legendary Kalashnikov machine gun. And no, it’s not a toy gun. It’s the real deal, a live AK-47!

We will then return back to the hotel for the night. 

Explore Kremlin + Russian Circus

Today, you will tick off the biggest bucket list item - Kremlin. A fortress within the city, overlooking the Moskva River, it’s the symbol and epitome of Russian imperial glory.

Home to Russia’s past rulers, the Kremlin palace is a work of art, with its ornate exteriors and exquisite interiors. It is every photographers' dream. The artistic beauty aside, it packs in years of tsarist history, which is bound to keep you engrossed throughout.

Within the Kremlin complex lies a number of impressive buildings – palaces, cathedrals and museums, with each deserving a visit of its own. The highlights are the onion shaped golden domes of the cathedrals, the rare collection of jewels and gemstones at the Diamond Fund and the great bell tower.

On the periphery of Kremlin lie landmark sites such as the Red Square, known for its red walls and views of Kremlin’s ornate domes. We'll also do some shopping at GUM, the world-famous department store on the Red Square.

Laer: witness the most modern “mummy”, the embalmed body of Lenin, leader of the Bolshevik Revolution at the Lenin Mausoleum.

In the evening (Optional: $18 per person), you will go for the thrilling Russian circus. It’s almost considered an art form, on par with the ballet and the opera. So sit tight and watch with bated breath, as highly skilled stuntmen and creative artists put on a dazzling show.

After the circus, it's time for a farewell dinner! Celebrate your memories of Russia and your last night here with your newfound friends.

Time to say goodbye!

Sadly, it’s your last morning in Russia. After breakfast, you’ll be driven to the airport to catch your flight home.
