Multiple cruise lines send elegant, beautiful, well-appointed vessels to St. Petersburg. There are many respons why a cruise trip is memorable, but it's the experiences you aren't expecting that make it magical. You will love the comfort of your cruise ship, but what you will remember is your shore adventure!

Book your St. Petersburg shore excursions on your own, independently of your cruise line and save a little bit of money, while enjoying a bit more autonomy and personalization. Escape crowded group tours for more intimate explorations with a smaller number of participants or perhaps just your family and friends. See the sights you want to see and at your pace rather than following some prearranged plans by a cruise line. In places that are particularly significant in an historic and cultural sense such as St Petersburg, a private guide can make the experience. On a shore excursion booked with Fremad Russia, you will see so much more, have a superb experience, and you will never be rushed. You will have more control over where you go and the timing of the day. This is also a useful strategy when you are traveling with children who may need more breaks or playtime than a ship's tour would allow.

Saving money is also a consideration, especially when you are traveling with several people in your group and looking at sightseeing tours that cost hundreds of dollars per person. It certainly makes sense to pay less by booking an excursion independently with a trusted tour provider.

Fremad Russia offers a wide range of sightseeing tours for cruise passengers. Take your pick from our most popular shore excursions below.
