This tour was incredible. The palace is out-of-this-world, with a history to match. Our guide was wonderful and moved us through efficiently as expected by the monitors, but made sure we got to see all we wanted. A must do when in St. Petersburg!

We were fetched directly from our hotel and spent a very memorable morning exploring Catherine's Palace and the beautiful grounds surrounding the palace. We were enthralled by the lavish splendour of the highly ornate succession of rooms, each with its particular function and story. The amber room is quite incredible but no photos are allowed in this room. One feels a sense of presence and authenticity in this palace, more so than in the Winter Palace. We left with a feeling of insight into the history of this amazing palace as well as the personality of Catherine the Great thanks to our extremely knowledgeable guide, Katya, who went beyond all expectations in her extensive grasp of and passion for Russian history. I would strongly recommend this tour.
