Peter’s Walking Tours is a team of young, streetwise, well-travelled individuals, based in St. Petersburg, Russia. We offer a range of English-language walking tours running to a set timetable, several walks every day. Designed for a curious and energetic budget-conscious traveller, our walks cover all aspects of St. Petersburg’s life, from history, arts and social culture to everyday practicalities.

To take a Peter’s Walking Tour, turn up at the designated meeting point a couple of minutes before the starting time. You do not need to book in advance. Peter’s Walking Tours run in any weather, rain or shine (or ‘snow and frost’ as we say in Russian).

We keep our prices as low as possible. A scheduled Original walk costs 1400 rubles; a good value for a four hour walking tour. With all inquiries regarding Peter’s Walking Tours, please contact us at
