Wheelchair accessible shore excursions in St. Petersburg

Recommended Posts

I am trying to find accessible tours and trustworthy tour companies in St. Petersburg that offer tours for wheelchair passengers. Does anybody know of such? Maybe some of you have been on accessible tours in St. Petersburg before? Suggestions, tips and advice are most welcome!

We used a tour company, booked in advance and paid for on the day. It was expensive but well worth it in my opinion. It was a very full day and was a little challenging in parts. I use an electric chair which coped pretty well, a manual chair would be hard going I think,   some of the kerbs are high and access is variable. However, people were helpful and friendly and the tour guide and driver were great. It’s a fascinating and beautiful city, Peterhof and the Catherine Palace were highlights and wheelchair access was good.

We used SPB tours twice in St. Petersburg in two different years. We also used them in the other stops in our second year. Before I made the reservation, I wrote them and described my limitations. They made suggestions for the tours and were very helpful both before and during the tours.

We’ve been to SPB twice. I took a manual wheelchair and both times we booked with Alla Tours who were excellent. However, I think most of the local operators get good reviews.

Try Sage Traveling. They are a tour company designed for wheelchair users.
