    St Petersburg

    The highlights tour on the previous day will surely make us want to see more of Saint Petersburg and we will do so by visiting the Hermitage Museum, which is also called the ‘Louvre of Russia’. The Hermitage complex itself is of architectural delight and the collections have stories to speak which will hopefully, spike our interest enough to make to go back read our history textbooks. A special highlight awaits as we visit the Hermitage, formerly the Winter Palace and home to Russia’s Imperial family. Today it houses one of the world’s most magnificent art collections. Next, we visit Faberge Museum. In the evening, you can explore this city a little more and spend the night at the hotel.

Hello there! If you come on this trip, we're going to have a lot of fun together. Ask any queries you may have and I will get back to you as soon as possible

Get in touch
  • What does twin share price mean?

    Twin share price is the price mentioned against a package and it refers to the cost per head for a double sharing accommodation. If you'd like to upgrade to Single Occupancy, please select this at the time of checkout
  • Why don't you include flights in the Package cost?

    Since our wanderers are located a variety of locations in India and outside India - it is impossible to include flights in the trip cost.
  • What meals are included on my trip? Can i request Indian / vegetarian / special cuisine on tour?

    The exact number of meals included on the trip is clearly specified on the itinerary and is different for each trip. Our vacations strive to introduce you to local authentic flavors, so you can enjoy the destination in a deeper way. Therefore, included meals are usually local or continental. Please request vegetarian meals at the time of booking, and also with the local guide and WOW Buddy on tour; this can usually not a problem when requested in advance. When meals are not included, you may choose an restaurant of your choice in the city you are touring.
  • Regarding the hotels, what does OR SIMILAR refer to?

    OR SIMILAR means that the hotel booked might be different from the hotel mentioned in the itinerary. 90% of the time we book the hotel that’s mentioned, but under few situations it might differ due to on-the-ground factors. So we pick an alternate hotel, but always in the same class and area of the city.
