Visiting in February we didn't really need the skip-the-line part of this tour as there were no queues, but we did get the benefit of a private tour, as there were just two of us on the tour and the expertise and knowledge of our tour guide. We'd met our guide, Olga, the previous day during our visit to the Hermitage and were looking forward to the tour of Catherine's Palace with her. The Palace is beautiful, breath-taking and stunning. Again Olga's love and passion for art came across during the tour. Olga also pointed out buildings of interest on our journeys, both too and from the Palace. The journey takes about 40 minutes by car, longer by public transport. I booked a transfer as I didn't feel confident in travelling by public transport. After travelling around the centre of St. Petersburg by bus I would consider making my own way there if I were to visit again.
Only the one in the tour do I got the best of everything My tour guide Yana is an exceptional one explaining the history, art, and philosophies of Russia in a very fun manner. She loves what she does and that makes the whole tour better! We had some awesome borscht too after the tour and Alexis the driver toured us around the city too.
A fabulous tour that covered all the main attractions. Our guide Stan was incredibly knowledgeable and looked after us extremely well. We would highly recommend the tour and Stan in particular.
Wow - The lady was so knowledgable and wonderful in every way. She was very inspiring in her history knowledge. I would highly recommend.
We truly enjoyed every moment; we would book our guide anytime for any tour again.
