St. Petersburg
Draw Bridges Night Tour by CarLike Venice, St. Petersburg is spread across a lot of big and small islands and it's hard to walk more than a few hundred meters without crossing a bridge! St. Petersburg has the largest number of bridges of any city in the entire world. With a total of 539 bridges (315 in the historical centre alone), not even Venice, Stockholm or Amsterdam can beat the city’s total! And more than 20 of all bridges are drawbridges. The elegance of some bridges can be compared only to the beauty of the city architectural ensembles. The bridges of St. Petersburg have become an integral part of the city.

See what our clients say about this tour
We are very happy to have served thousands of happy customers who travelled with us.
All tour guides were excellent, very knowledgable and friendly.
The epic adventure of the Trans-Siberian trip ending in Beijing was amazing. I had been to Russia many times before but never had such variety. It was a wonderful trip with my grandson and the other five who were in our ”English” group in each city/train.
The punctuality of drivers and guides they’re command of English excellent, and the itinerary was a perfect mix of cultural experience, trips and free time.
The trip was amazing! Definitely the trip of a lifetime!!!!!!!!!
Although all our guides shared a lot of information and seemed very educated about the tours, our guides in Moscow (Nadia), Yaketerinburg (Olga) and Beijing (Judy) were fantastic, especially Judy in Beijing. She was so fun and sweet. I would have loved to spend more time with her. Walking on the Great Wall was fantastic.
This was a fantastic experience from start to finish. Would I undertake the trip again? In a heartbeat! The support from London was great and the organisation on-route excellent. The guides were all good and several were outstanding and really catered for our needs. Thank you to the staff of Just Go Russia - loved it!
Everything went exactly to schedule, drivers were there to pick us up as indicated, guides were always there at the allotted time. Trains departed/arrived on time. We had no issues at all on the journey.
Go Russia was efficient and responsive to all my enquiries, I would like to mention Julia who was exceptionally helpful in answering all my enquiries and assurances given to a single female traveller. Jelena at the Visa office was also very helpful, thank you. I would recommend Go Russia without any hesitation and would definitely use them again
Overall, the trip was fantastic. We had a great group of 6 from Moscow to Beijing who got on well together, which made for a entertaining time, particularly on the trains. We learnt an enormous amount from all the guides and this made the whole trip really interesting. Thanks for a great experience!
The local guides and drivers were first class. They all took really good care to ensure that all of the programme was followed. It was an adventure but thanks to the guides and drivers we felt secure at all times
