What people are saying about Palace Square

A very busy two days. Our guide, Valeria from Marina Wilson Tours, was very informative and gave us a wonderful experience of St Petersburg. There were only the two of us on the tour so we had the personal attention of our guide and driver. Entry to Catherine's Palace and the Hermitage was very speedy and 'beat the crowds'. Lunches were excellent and in unusual restaurants rather than the usual mass cratering of most tours.

I had a great tour and a very knowledgable kind guide tour Irina. Everything went according to the program and in a friendly way. I really recomend to do this 2 days tour. We cover the main highlights of Saint Petersburgh. Get your guide is a excelent application. Thank you. Isabel
