Embark on a discovery of St. Petersburg
By day or by night, enjoy a cruise on the Neva River to discover St. Petersburg as you’ve never seen it.

Gliding under one bridge to another with a view of the finest monuments, river banks and cozy channels.

Bridges in Saint Petersburg are astonishing and unique monuments; especially the drawbridges offer you a breathtaking and extraordinary spectacle during the White Nights.

But with such a once-in-a-lifetime experience at hand, it’d be a shame to water it down by booking one of those mass market tourist-grade cruises. So, we can get way more imaginative than that.

Instead, our Private Neva River Cruise provide a private motorboat with a certified captain at the helm and an uber-passionate guide at your side to explain the sights as you drift along.

No view of St. Petersburg is better than the view from the city’s waterway, so be sure to bring your camera!
