Cruise Passengers
The best and most popular way for cruise ship passengers to experience the most that St Petersburg has to offer is by having us create customized personalized private tour. This can also be called VIP touring-your and only your own party alone without any strangers. VJ Tours works directly with you in creating a custom private tour that perfectly matches your party's interests and expectations. 

A Private tour allows the most direct interaction with your professional licensed guide who will acts as your guide, adviser on the culture and your interpreter for when you  meet locals or interact with shops and restaurants  Although some destinations require appointment times to be met, having a private tour allows a degree of flexibility during the tour. Next to being a native of St Petersburg, a private tour is the best way to understand this fascinating city and culture.

The price of a custom tour is dependent on the number of people accompanying you. With each additional person, the cost per person in your group reduces, for example, 8 people touring together in a private group pay less per person than if the group totals 4 in number, participating in the same tour destinations since the price of the van or a car, port fees, your guide, driver and other fixed costs do not increase with the number of visitors. 

Land Visitors
An advantage of a land tour is the luxury of more time to explore over a number of days, and having more flexibility in exploring on your own. After the first day of orientation with your VJ guide, you will have no problem finding your way around, using the efficient and convenient public transportation, and interacting with the city on your own in the evenings. We can provide VISA Support documents needed to apply for your visa. There are hundreds of museums, parks and cathedrals in the city and there are many cultural and social activities, all of which we can assist you will arranging.
Evening options are no less wide in choices as during the day: Fine Dining, a ballet, or small jazz club, dinner cruise on the Neva River, Master Classes in Rusian Cooking, noise rock or dance clubs, or just hanging out in a local pub meeting locals.

How to plan your visit

We can create a tour itinerary that fits your interests and timing. The first step is to let us know when you are coming and how many days you will be here. Then list some interests such as history, contemporary culture, recreation, museums,  daily life etc.
