St. Petersburg St. Isaac's Cathedral Excursion Reviews
Really enjoyed this. It reminded me a little of the Duomo in Florence.
Lovely, especially from the outside but not as outstanding as other churches in the area
We drove past St Isaac's on the City tour and were able to get a picture of the outside. We came back later for the inside tour. It is hard to know where to look as there is so much to see. It is one of 4 similar style cathedrals. Not to be missed! We had a short amount of time to shop or tour.
TJ Travel hosted our 2-day tour of St. Petersburg. We contacted them after reading reviews on Cruise Critic and were not disappointed. The first day was a private tour--just my husband and me and our guide. We got inside the Peterhof summer palace as well as lovely walk around the gardens and fountains--saw the turning on of the fountains ni the morning. Also saw Catherine's palace, had hydrofoil cruise up the Neva, city tour, great lunch, ballet in the evening. Second day was with four other people, so was a little less cost, but still a great group of just 6 plus our guide to do the Hermitage and the churches. Both guides spoke excellent english, answered all our questions, gave history as well as art facts. On second day, I would have liked amplification/speakers, but it was not really crucial.
