  Tour description (the total duration 19 hours)

We made this tour for the fall-winter period. This is the time when the navigation in the city is over, and we cannot organize boat trips. The time when the famous Peterhof Fountains without jets of water, their water system is emptied. Fountain sculptures are covered with wooden boxes to protect them from rains and winds. But the park is picturesque even without fountains. Its strict paths lead visitors to the shore of the Gulf of Finland.
We tried to make this tour rich and interesting, like our 2-Day Intensive Tour (May-October).

We hope that this tour will bring joy and unforgettable experience to guests of our city. 

 

The end time of the first tour day allows you to catch an unforgettable evening program "Folk Show". The show starts at 9, the program makes you feel the whole depth of the Russian soul. If you would like to book this tour let us know. We will organize it with great pleasure. j-travel-spb.ru/Tours/Evening-Events/evening-events_23.html
