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. The Hermitage museum is closed on Mondays (day off).

1. The entrance fee to the Hermitage museum (appr. 12$/person) is not included into the price of the tour.

2. For groups of 3 people and more special equipment for the voice amplification is to be rented which is not included into the price of the tour and has to be paid in cash on arrival (appr.1,5$/person)

3. The museum determines the entry time along with the route we have to stick to. Thanks for understanding.
