Step inside Catherine Palace for a private tour of this impressive summer residence. Located in the town of Pushkin outside St Petersburg center, the Rococo palace and former home of the Russian tsars is now a museum highlighting 300 years of local history. Learn the story of its origins, wander among its grand halls and marvel at the world-famous Amber Room, a perfect recreation of the gold-leaf and amber paneled chamber that Nazis stole crate by crate during World War II.
Wonderful, knowledgable guide eased us through the crowd and gave us a room by room narrative.
She was at our hotel promptly with driver and a large comfortable car. Would highly recommend.
Anna was a great tour guide and got us right through the lines without much wait. We would not have been able to do this trip without a guide- the lines were hours long. Plus, the driver Sergey was kind and dropped us off right where we needed to go after the tour. Worth the price given the time we saved doing this tour. Anna also knew some places we wouldn't have known to visit and she took us to the best shop after the tour. Her English was perfect. Thanks!
Superb service especially on getting a fast pass to museum and a comfortable Mercedes Benz for commute, agreat excursion and introduction to the spots. Highly recommended to visitors. Mashia, tour guide and driver all very friendly and professional. Good tips from tour guide on souvenirs.
The guide, Kate, was very knowledgeable and professional. The driver was dependable and careful of traffic. We were picked up and delivered right on time, we were very happy with the whole tour, even if it was cold and rainy!
Our guide Katerina was wonderful , pleasant and very knowledgable . We strongly recommend this tour.
The Palace is a must see visit. The tour ran very smoothly with Daria proving to be an excellent and knowledgeable guide. Do not hesitate to take this tour.
