Two of us are coming from a meeting in Helsinki and would like to do a 1-day comprehensive tour on September 23. We get into St. Petersburg on 22 at 14:27 but don[t think that we can do much on that day. What would you suggest and how much would it cost. We don't mind joining up with other like-minded persons. Thanks in advance. YH

Peter, there were 4 in our group. The cost per person was the same regardless of the number when you book a private tour. Well worth the money. Ask for Elena if you go-she is excellent.
