Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Vehicles with an English-speaking guide are offered on a half-day (four hours) basis. Deviations to duration, departure / return time or locations to be visited can be made onboard in advance but will incur an additional charge. This is a private arrangement, those accompanying you are the family or friends with whom you agree to share costs. We do not match groups of passengers to form a private group for the vehicle. Vehicles and guides are of extremely limited availability, reserve early. These are special tours designed to offer the privacy and flexibility of touring with family or friends and the convenience of sightseeing at your own pace. We also recommend private tours for passengers with limited mobility.

These tours are ordered per vehicle. One person in your party places the order for the vehicle, the entire cost of the vehicle is charged to that person's shipboard account and cannot be divided among the party. A tour ticket will be issued onboard the ship and delivered to the cabin of the person booking this tour on embarkation day. Once onboard the ship, you will receive a form requesting the names of each individual in your party. This information is required to allow your party to disembark the ship for the tour. Please provide this information promptly to avoid being denied to participate.

St. Petersburg is a large city with the same traffic problems found in other major metropolises. Take locations and travel time into account when planning your visit. We have compiled suggested itineraries to help you maximize your tour. Since these venues are likely to be visited by other tour groups, you may experience crowds at some locations.

Entrance fees to the museums are not included into the cost of private vehicle and guide and will be charged additionally to your shipboard account.

Meals, refreshment and gratuities are not included. It is customary to invite the guide to dine with you, covering his/her meal expenses. Not only will the guide be able to assist you in ordering, but this will also provide you with a valuable opportunity to further discuss topics that might interest you. Your driver will provide his/her own meal and will remain with the vehicle.
