Description

This is your chance to tip toe across the rooftops of St. Petersburg and soak up spectacular views of the city's well-known sights.

Your experienced guide will tell you fun and fascinating facts about the history of the city as you walk along the rooftops. You’ll see the spires and domes of churches and cathedrals and have the chance to look down on Nevsky Prospekt, the main street of St. Petersburg.

If you’re wondering how safe this tour is – never fear! The rooftops are slightly sloped but there are fences along the edges so there’s nothing to worry about. The tour doesn’t involve any climbing but we do advise that you wear comfortable shoes.

For those of you who are not overly confident when it comes to heights, rest assured that if you feel uncomfortable at any point on the tour, your guide will help you get back to the ground as quickly as possible.

The tour lasts 60–80 minutes.

A minimum of 2 participants is required per booking.

for Margarita’s tour (Rooftop Tour of St. Petersburg )
We took the private rooftop tour and our guide to the St Petersburg rooftop was Misha, a young 20-year old meteorology student. He had great English, told some interesting facts and had some good jokes. The roof has a non-slip cover and it's pretty safe to walk around. Didn't know about the air-raid towers from second world war, so that was interesting to learn.
