Great day
Had a great day touring Catherine’s palace and the Peterhof gardens.

Catherine was our guide and she was excellent! Fluent in English, very knowledgeable and a great sense of humor made for a very enjoyable visit.

Thanks for the tour!

There was only one day to make a round trip in St. Petersburg for me, which means we had to visited The Hermitage Museum, The Catherine Palace and Peterhoff Gardens in ONE DAY! It seemed to be impossible, but it could come true because we joined this trip!
It was so nice that this trip had a hotel-pick-up service, so that we were easily joined the trip. Luckily there were only three of us who joined this trip, very privileged!
At the Catherine Palace, we could skipped the queue! Everything was so nice, the guide and also the driver was very kind and nice. I strongly recommend you this trip if you have very limited time to spend in St.Petersburg!

Dear Customer, Many thanks for your feedback. Catherine Palace/Peterhoff gardens tour is specifically designed for first time visitors who have limited time in Saint Petersburg. Saint Petersburg has a lot to offer and it is better to take a guided tour to such popular attractions as Catherine Palace and Peterhoff gardens. Catherine Palace is an extremely popular museum. Queues at the entry often a day long. Lots of people leave disappointed. Peterhoff and Catherine Palace are located in different, distant suburbs of Saint Petersburg. So unless you have your trip/tour organized, you may not be able to make it in one day. Thanks a lot for the recommendation and a detailed report of the tour advantages. Kind regards, Marina Wilson

Perfect!
The tour and my guide Konstantin were wonderful! I booked last minute and the company managed to get those desired and online sold out tickets without problems. It turned out I was the only guest and the tour became a "private" one. Konstantin is a very kompetent German speaking guide with endless knowledge that he is happy to share. We drove to Peterhof in the early afternoon and walked the gardens in the sunshine - certainly one of the best things I have experienced in my life. Afterwards we drove to Catherines Palace and saw the interior rooms including the amber room as well as the beautiful gardens.
We never had to wait in line. The driver was always immediately there to pick us up. Konstantin finished the tour by quoting poems from Pushkin in the car on the way back home to my hotel.
I can just recommend this tour and that company! And I want to thank Wilson tours for this unforgettable experience!

Lovely palace
I loved everything about the palace.its very well maintained and here you can see the wealth and precision of the Russian empire.i love old buildings and the fact that they played my country’s national anthem while going in added glory to the monument.a must see along with the gardens.they are romantically equisite.
