Canal Tours

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 2 customer ratings
(2 customer reviews)


To visit St. Petersburg without sailing through its rivers and canals means having not seen “the Venice of the North!”. There are so many ways to explore this magnificent city, but none so spectacular as when you weave the city through its maze of famous canals on your own private canal tour.

You will have a chance to see many of the famous sites with a panoramic view. Nothing is as memorable as when you view the city and Hermitage from the Neva river. Take the cruise during the summer nights and enjoy the mezmorizing “white nights” and watch the opening of the famous bridges. Beautiful and Romantic.
