This is an incredible tour with a very knowledgeable and fun guide. Very professional. You go straight into the Palace skipping the long lines. A St. Petersburg must!

Well worth the trip out of Moscow. The palace was beautiful and the Amber Room unusual. Be sure to take the train, not a car. Moscow traffic can be awful.

Reliable. We sent an enquiry before our arrival in Russian about the confirmation of pickup time and place. The tour operator was responsive.

Great from the driver, the car, to the tour guide Lidiya, who was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic all the way to the end of the tour. It was raining that day, but it did not dampen Lidiya's spirit, so much so that we enjoyed her company and information. The amber room was beautiful, however it is too bad, picture taking isn't allowed in that room. Overall, the rain did not stop us from having an excellent tour with Lidiya, of Marie Rose Tours. Thanks!

This tour exceed our expectations. The guide and driver we punctual, friendly and informative. The commentary provided by Alyona was superb. She never made us feel rushed and yet we saw everything on the itinerary and more. She was so knowledgable and taught us so much without feeling like we we being lectured. If you get Alyona as a guide consider yourself very fortunate. Peter and Connie Australia.

Our tour guide arrived on time with the driver and limousine. Our small group tour was actually just the two of us and the guide so we had her undivided attention! The tour of the Catherine Palace was very interesting. It had been my ambition for many years to see the Amber Room which was as beautiful and amazing as I had hoped. Our guide was friendly and very informative. An excellent tour.

Our booking was placed with MariaRose Tours and the guide was Irina Yuneva, who was very knowledgeable and responsive to our questions. A week before the tour we were told that Catherine Palace would be closed that day and we would visit Peterhof instead and Pavlovsk. This was fine for us and we visited Catherine Palace highly recommended on another day. We really enjoyed Peterhof and Pavlovsk. Both were beautiful, both inside the palaces and outside in the parks and gardens. They definitely matched the descriptions in guide books. Irina explained everything in a lively and interesting way. We had a nice lunch in the cafe at Pavlovsk and, this being our first day in Russia, Irina helped us choose what to eat, so we had some solyanka and pelmeni for instance.
The trip was well organised. We were picked up from our hotel in a spacious vehicle and were in a very small group. There was a driver, so Irina was able to talk about buildings and places of interest on the way. We found Irina very pleasant and she told us a little about her family life, which also interesting. A great day out !

It was a very exiting tour. Our guide Lida from MariaRose Tours, an intelligent young lady, was very kind and polite and told us everything about Russian history. There was enough time for photos and for jokes. We even learned some new Russian words!

Great tour! our guide Lida Lydia picked us up at the hotel at 10, and as we were 6, we had the minibus to ourselves. On the way, our guide gave us information about what we were seeing, the history of St Petersburg, and more information on the Summer Palace. The tour of the palace itself was breathtaking and very informative, and she was very good at steering us through so that we saw everything without getting caught up with bigger groups. And she answered all the questions we threw at her!. Her English was excellent, and she really knew her subject. After a quick walk through the park in the snow, we were taken back to the hotel via some of the sites of the city. Not forgetting the driver - I wouldn't have wanted to be driving through the city traffic on snow, but he took it all in his stride. All in all, a lovely half day to remember, and we were all agreed that booking the tour had been the right decision. Thanks Lida!

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.

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!
