The guide Lydia was knowledge, friendly and spoke amazing English. I could not have done these locations by myself - she was great. It was worth doing the 2 stops as they both had a different feel. The gardens were less attractive as it is going into winter, but the interiors were incredible.
Outstanding tour with Roman. An absolute must if you go to St Petersburg.
We had a very pleasant experience with this tour. Our guide was Mr Roman who was very professional and knowledgeable. Recommended!
We had an excellent guide for our visit who met us at our hotel. On the way to Pushkin we were given a full history of St Petersburg and it's development, from Peter the Great to the modern day most informative. Our driver dropped us close to the Palace and the guide took us through the Palace giving us a superb narrative on the way. There was time for pictures as well as to take more time over items we specifically wanted to see, for example the pictures in the Amber room. Our guide was incredibly well informed we could not have asked for better. The trip was tailored to what we wanted, where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do. We were taken back to the hotel and were left knowing that we would use Viator again to organise our trips!
It was a very pleasant experience. This was my 3rd trip to St. Petersburg but my first trip to Catherine Palace. Our tour guide was an excellent English speaker and very knowledgeable.
Very beautiful Palace. Amber Room is quite unique. A lot of history behind the place and the Royals. We had a very good English guide. Gardens are photo-worth. Do recommend.
Although we had a problem with the booking form (the hotel address and telephone number didn and #39;t store), Viator could find a good solution. Today we did the tour with the guide Elena. It was fantastic! The place is really nice, and Elena an excellent guide. Thank you!
Excellent experience. Especially with Lida as a guide. She was really good. Gave us a lot of details and history stories.
It was absolutely wonderful. The tour guide was incredibly knowledgable. Would recommend to anyone who doesn't want to miss out on one of the most beautiful sights in Russia.
Fortunately, we were only 6 people on the tour and everything was great. The palace is amazing and all went smoothly. It seems it's always very crowded, but our tour guide Lidia took the time to explain everything in detail and of course, we recommend this tour to everyone, because it's a must do in St. Petersburg.
This experience lived up to our high hopes and Guide Lida was exceptional. No matter what we asked she was able to answer in an extraordinarily well informed way. Highly recommend this tour.
Excellent trip with a brilliant guide Lida-she was knowledgeable, interesting and funny!
The Catherine Palace is wonderful.
Very good tour with just the right amount of information. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made our visit interesting.
Absolutely fabulous tour of Pushkin and Catherine Palace! Lida was a most charming and informative guide and I thoroughly recommend this company! Thank you!
Well worthwhile- a must to do. this company did it well
Very good tour. As there are not so many visitors as when you visit Peterhof we enjoy more the visit to the palace and Pushkin
Perfect tour ! My guide Lydia was very friendly and knew a lot about the palace. I was just overwhelmed by the beauty of the place. Highly recommended !
This was a special day made all the more so by the wonderful guide we had, who made the whole day such a wonderful experience. .It was interesting to see the contrast between the two palaces. Pavlovsk being so much more modest than Catherine Palace yet so elegant.. It was a great insight into another side of the Russian rulers lives. The scenery was lovely and the parkland beautiful. The drive was comfortable and the driver courteous. Lida made the day so enjoyable whilst at the same time passing on so much information. It was a pleasure to learn from such an accomplished and knowledgeable young guide.Recommend this tour. to all.. Patsy Jemison
Wonderful experience that will always be remembered ! It's a must see tour !
