Our guide Olga was there on time. While traveling to the palace, she already told us a lot about the palace, but also about the city itself. We loved the public transport part, because it is genuinely part of the Russian experience. Our guide was very kind, social and knowledgable. Although she was so kind to bring us all the way back to the hotel, we suggested to do the last bit ourself. The palace itself is really impressive and with the stories of Olga it even came more alive. Highly recommended.

Perfect organization. They picked us up from the hotel after an email the day before, we were six. Very comfortable bus the guide really prepared as well as nice. The historian of St. Petersburg explained us very well both outward and return. The beautiful palace appreciated even more with the guide without queuing. Beautiful ride outside. Congratulations and good.

Great palace, great guide, an extraordinary experience. Discovery of the local suburb via public transport from another time. Visit of a sumptuous palace undergoing rehabilitation and very difficult to access because it is very popular!

Irina was really nice and informative. We did not take the public transport but she drove us there so we were able to save time and got enough to visit Catherine palace and other places around St. Petersburg while she was driving.
