Virtual Moscow & St. Petersburg


Virtual tour hosted by Olga

What you'll do

The starting point for any trip to or experience with Russia is Moscow and St. Petersburg.  These two cities consistently take top honors in the annual World Travel Awards and for good reason: world-famous museums, theaters, palaces, historical landmarks, and the list goes on.  Understandably, there isn’t just ONE virtual tour that can do these cities justice; we actually offer EIGHT different virtual tours of Moscow & St. Petersburg!  Below is a list to choose from; these tours are always available for private groups, and at different times during each month if you’d like to join a public group:

-Virtual Moscow: Join me for a virtual tour of Russia’s capital.  We will use 360 degree panoramic views and exclusive pictures to make you feel like you are really there in the heart of Russia!

-Virtual St. Petersburg – This tour is a perfect opportunity for you to see the highlights of Russia’s “Venice of the North”: time-honored royalty, majestic canal views, onion-shaped church domes, and much more!

-Virtual Summer Palaces of Tsars – Join me as we explore three royal estates of the Russian royal family, outside of St. Petersburg: Catherine’s Palace (Pushkin), Peterhoff Palace, and Pavlovsk Palace.

-Virtual Hermitage Museum – Although 90 minutes can hardly do it justice, come explore the world’s 2nd largest museum, St. Petersburg’s Hermitage Museum.

-Virtual Hermitage Museum: Art Only! – This tour is for art-lovers, as we’ll do a deep dive into some of the Hermitage’s most famous (and not-so-famous) pieces of art!

-Virtual Canal Cruise – Join me for a virtual canal cruise in St. Petersburg.  St. Petersburg is known as the Venice of the North because of its beautiful rivers and canals.  Many of the important buildings in the city were built to be viewed from the water.

-Virtual Hidden Gems of St. Petersburg – Because Russia’s “cultural capital” is filled with so many famous destinations, often equally-deserving but less-known places get overlooked.  On this virtual tour, we’ll explore two of those places, the Yusupov Palace and the Faberge Museum (yes, THOSE Faberge Eggs!).

-Virtual Field Trip: Russia for Kids! – This virtual field trip to Russia is for kids up to 12 years old.  We will use our imagination, 360-degree panoramic views, games and dancing to learn about this mysterious country halfway around the world.  What kids eat, how they dance, and how they travel; you’ll learn these things and more in this interactive Russia experience!  ***Great for individual classes or home-school groups!

Meet your guide, Olga

Hi, my name is Olga and I grew up in St. Petersburg.  I have been enchanted with museums and Russia’s rich history since I was a little girl, starting when we would take school field trips to the Hermitage Art Museum.  I have been guiding international guests visiting Russia since 2012, to many of my favorite spots in St. Petersburg and Moscow: Peterhoff Palace, the Hermitage, the Faberge Museum, churches, mansions, and the list goes on.  Since the world went into quarantine in 2020 due to COVID-19, I have been providing virtual tours to Moscow and St. Petersburg and continue to show off Russia’s beauty and history, just on Zoom rather than in-person.  I hope to meet you soon!

I thought Olga's virtual tour for kids was great! Very age-appropriate. I spoke to the other parents at our homeschool co-op today and they said Olga was really fantastic and engaging!

Olga's Virtual Russia for Kids tour was fun!! My two sons really enjoyed it and I thought she was so good! I loved how fluent she was in English - the kids totally understood everything she said - and she was really talented at leading the interaction with the kids (which is daunting on Zoom).

Olga's initial questions helped us feel more like a true group: “Who has been to St Petersburg? What do you know about St Petersburg?" I liked her personal stories about people trying to hurry across the bridges by midnight. The audio quality was really good and that’s really important! Olga had really good warmth coming through the screen, and handled people’s questions well.

I really liked the small group and interactive atmosphere we had with Olga. I liked that she answered questions as we went along. She saw us as well as us seeing her; that was very nice. She had a welcoming way about her. She was friendly, informative and I would recommend her to others and would watch another tour she leads.

This is my first experience of a virtual tour so I didn’t know what to expect. I thought everything was excellent and Olga was great. Her sharing the history and the whys of different things made it interesting and easy to watch. Without that, if I were just looking at pictures of St. Petersburg, it would have been boring.
