    Catherine Palace and Park
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    Commence your private 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. Important: entry time to the Catherine Palace might be changed by the tour department of the museum, the tour operator will contact you in advance if there will be changes.

Our tour guide Andrey Merzlyakov was excellent! He was subcontracted by the company we booked through Trip Adviser.

However, the tour package was very misleading. It showed Catherine Palace and Pavlovsky Palace with the tour duration 3 hours. It turned out that the tour to Catherine Palace takes 5 hours on its own and it is no way that Pavlovsky would be included, as it is in different town to start with, even that there were not many tourists and good weather on the day we have visited. I suggest the tour operator change the schedule and tour description accordingly.

Very nice tour! I definitely recommend it!
Jul 2019 • Couples
We had a car-van (Mercedes) to pick us from a business center (fortunately this was 1 min walk from our hotel). We were 4 people, (2 couples), therefore it was like a private tour. On the road, our guide was telling us the story of Catherine's palace, but also general info about monuments and buildings we were passing by with the car.
When we arrived, our guide handled the tickets, and we did not have to wait in the line (we skipped the line-very useful).
The tour in the palace was very nice, it lasted about one hour and it was ENOUGH!
Then we had a tour outside to the gardens, which also lasted approximately one hour. However, when we left, we realized that we wanted to stay longer, and if we did not had the guide with us, we would definitely stay longer. The truth is though that it is not very easy to go to Pushkin park, therefore having a driver was very helpful.

Catherine Palace tour on 30 May 2019
May 2019 • Friends
Communication on where to meet our guide outside the Catherine Palace was excellent but unfortunately the guide was 35 minutes late due to being stuck in traffic. However, we had travelled via car from St Petersburg and arrived 25 minutes early so this was a poor excuse. Once we started the tour our guide was excellent and very knowledgeable and we enjoyed the tour very much. At the end, we were given a small gift as compensation for the late start. I got the impression they were embarrassed and that this is not the norm as in all other ways a very professional tour - just frustrating to be kept waiting for so long.
