We bought a 3-day City pass - a great saver indeed. Hop on hop off bus was good to orientate ourselves with the most significant sights but the traffic was really bad in the afternoon and the bus did not stick to schedules. So, go early and ensure that you are a few minutes earlier at the hop on stops. The hop on hop off boat was also enjoyable. Don’t miss out on the free St Petersburg walking tour. Plan your visits to the museums well - too many, too little time... Another tip: plan the river cruises in advance and exchange all your vouchers for firm tickets at the Embankment 2 ticket office to secure your seats.
Our guide was a wonderful young lady who knew her material quite well. The cathedrals are so marvellous, and one can never see them in one day without a guide, except in the unlikely event that you know your way around St. Petersburg. It really is also a walking tour of town. We stopped at some extra sites as well, and our guide left us at the wonderful fast food restaurant Teremok. She made sure we had English menus and could order and then set off to her next tour.
Hi in Moscow I got a card to go around in saint Petersburg apart from the blunder on the part of Getyourguide cancellation of my pass the pass was ok. Unfortunately the new one I had to paid was in a form of a booklet in which you had to tear sections in order to use. That was very inconvenient. Also instead of looking for the place of collection you should have an office in the airport. The time for collection was also bad, 11 am is very late.
you will have to stay in regular line to exchange your book ticket for an attraction one . so no time savings but some money. good selection of the attractions. missing hermitage and access to Petergoff palaces and parks ( beware they are all separate tickets); hop on hop off buses have good route but most of the times you stay in traffic and not all stops are well defined. tour on the water was great.
The dinner cruise with live music did not specify that food was to be purchased. Regardless of that, the taste of the food was not acceptable. It was bland and the fish was raw in the centre. CityPass should have a sign to indicate the place to redeem the voucher. It took us an hour of walking, asking and searching to finally find the place.
