Royal Winter Holidays

Welcome to one of the most authentic tours in Russia!

Travelling to Russia in the winter may seem like a challenging ordeal, but in fact, it is a completely different experience compared to visiting in the summer. On the Royal Winter Holidays Tour, e take care of your museum admissions so you will not need to queue and freeze outside. Safe and comfortable transport will be organized too.

This is an excellent option for visitors on a budget who have limited time to visit Saint Petersburg and need to maximise their stay in the city. Among several inclusions, there is the renowned Amber room at Catherine Palace, Fabergé museum and the magnificent Church of the Saviour on Spilled Blood.

Royal Winter Holidays Tour is available from October until April. It is a perfect blend of popular ‘must see’ museum visits and fun winter activities like a carriage/sleigh ride or a banya (Russian sauna) session. Please note they need to be booked separately and are not included in the price.
