What to expect
Commence your small-group tour with pickup from your St Petersburg hotel and climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan destined for the town of Pushkin, formerly known as Tsarskoye Selo. Receive a fascinating introduction to the rich history of the regal residences as you travel.  On arrival at your first palace, marvel at the colossal Baroque façade of Catherine Palace and delight in the vibrant swathe of color that decorates the structure. Embark on an informative guided tour of the gilded interiors, seeing opulent rooms like the White Vestibule, the Great Hall and the Throne Room.   Be mesmerized as you stroll into the Amber Room, a chamber considered the palace’s spectacular centerpiece; gaze at amber mosaics that were reclaimed after being lost in World War I and listen to fascinating facts from your guide.  After strolling through the pretty gardens, head next to Pavlovsk Paalce, if time and weather permit. Enjoy the splendor of the neoclassical structure as you explore grand rooms like the Egyptian Vestibule and the Italian Hall.  Relax in the gardens and then return to your vehicle for the journey back to your St Petersburg Hotel. Please note: The order of sightseeing as described above may be subject to change on the day of your tour.

A great way to see the Palaces
Aug 2019
There are a lot of people visiting these palaces; and they are really worth seeing, but I so so many people on large tours with ear pieces in trying to hear their guides and also long, long queues of people waiting for tickets including big groups that I felt so lucky to be part of this one.
We skipped the queues totally at Catherine's palace. I also really enjoyed Paul's palace and I know not everyone goes here.
Our guide was really knowledgeable and gave us so much info that I really din't know.

Thank you, Kaelie, for your feedback. Catherine Palace grew to be one of the most popular museums in Saint Petersburg. A guided tour which includes pre-booked admissions is the only way to visit this famous residence. As you have experienced, you skip the queue as pre-booked admissions have certain time entry. Our tour is an open time frame tour which means that we appoint the tour start time each time individually. This might be slightly inconvenient for your day planning but this is the only way to do it. The museums has different time entries available every day. Pavlovsk residence is less known to visitors. However, I believe if you have time, it makes sense to visit it. Located close to Tsarskoe Selo (Catherine Palace), it is the most beautiful classical residence with a charming park. Hope the rest of your time in Saint Petersburg was pleasant too. Kind regards, Marina Wilson

Excellent!
Natasha was our guide to Tsarsko Selo And we were lucky to have a very small group just my husband and I and one extra person so it really felt like a private tour. She was so knowledgeable and she gave us a great overview about the city not only of the palaces we visited. She was full of stories, interesting history events, as well as facts about the places and artwork. She seems to also know a lot of the other tour guides and guides was able to find us great spots to look at the artwork and take pictures. She also had a great skill of leading us through the the crowds with an ease to avoid the large tour groups.
Thank you Natasha for making our day so incredibly unforgettable. You are truly the best!

Excellent guide and excursion!
Aug 2018 • Couples
Daria is an excellent guide and very knowledgeable. We also got a couple of freebies not included in the tour as she granted our request to see the Carriage museum at Catherine's palace, and also had our driver stop for us at the war memorial at our request on the way, where I got an excellent video of the interactive monument. Very happy, one of the highlights of our trip. Also, Paul's palace in Pavlovsk is not to be missed, one of the best palaces to be seen in Russia.
