Regular holiday

Celebrity Cruises trip last year included 2 day stay at St Petersburg and the chance to manynof the highlights on a 2 day coach excursion with local guide. This was a fairly hectic time with each day being about 10 hours . But well worth the effort and time has managed to see lots of the main palaces, St Catherines being spectacular and the many fountains at Peteroff gardens outstanding and could easily have spent the whole day just there. Also church of spilt blood and couple of museums made these days memorable also small trip down the river included. The guide was very knowledgable and answered all questions with his own brand of humour added. These excursions also include a lunch at a local eatery each day one , this was local cuisine not alwaya too our taste. Obviously final stop was a gift shop but this was a large one that all the mementos you could think at resonable prices so on this occasions we did buy several items.

Overall would recommend this excursion to anyone who only has limited time there as you could never see this much if had to find your way arround.
