Important Information

Actually I am rather flexible with the time, although I try to avoid working at nights except the period of "White Nights". And probably there might be taken into consideration the fact that there are less people at the streets of St.Petetsburg at early weekend's mornings. Several day tours to Karelia have to be thoroughly discussed and booked at least 1 month before the planned data.

Available from July 2021. A visit to Peter-and-Paul's Cathedral is not possible on Wednesday (day off).

1. I can pick you up at the hotel and take you to the tour place. This as well as the transportation fee are a subject for negotiations; they are not included into the tour price and are to be paid in cash on arrival.

2. Peter-and-Paul's Fortress is usually rather a windy place, so it is recommened to check up the weather forecast and to be dressed accordingly.

3. In case of a stormy weather the tour has to be postponed for a later date.

4. For a group of 3 people and more special equipment is needed for your convenience. The fee for renting it is not included into the price and has to be paid in cash on arrival (about 1,5$/person).
