Nothing will ever quite prepare you for the imperial grandeur, glitz and glamour of Saint Petersburg. The land of fur-lined hats, caviar, champagne, ballet, and the over-the-top cultural capital of modern Russia, Saint Petersburg is a feast for the senses and a treasure trove of art and architecture. From the world renowned art in the Hermitage, opulent architecture, elegant villas and palaces, and soaring, onion-domed cathedrals that lend the city its fairy tale charm, to an extraordinary history of resilience and rebirth written into every stone, the most beautiful city in Russia is full of romantic ambiance, bridges, museum-like streets and imperial spirit. Tsar Peter the Great’s “window on the West,” St. Petersburg was built in the early 1700s on 44 islands, a feat that took the lives of thousands of workers. Today, it’s a stunning city, laced with canals, graceful bridges, and Empire-style buildings. Beginning in May, the summer brings long days and the famous "White Nights", when even at midnight the sun barely dips below the horizon, and the city's streets and gardens burst into life, celebrating the season with revelry all night long. The Saint Petersburg tour will introduce us to some of the richest and most revered cultural and historical landmarks of the city, including a visit to the famous Faberge Museum, the "Russian Versailles" of Peterhof Palace, the royal residence of Catherine Palace with its Gardens in Tsarskoe Selo, the incomparable Hermitage Museum and Winter Palace, a cruise on the canals that have earned Saint Petersburg the moniker "Venice of the North", and to top it all, a Russian ballet performance at Mariinsky (Kirov) Theatre, preceded by a private backstage tour.

Why travel with other women?
Many women do not have families or compatible friends who wish to travel. When going on a main-stream tour, women often find that most activities are geared towards couples and quite often they feel left out. Singles' tours are not always what women are looking for. If you do not have a traveling companion, there is also the issue of the expensive "single supplement", sometimes as much as 50 or even 100 percent of the tour cost. By going on women-only tours, women can easily avoid paying for the single supplement by sharing a room with another woman traveler.
