What people are saying about Amber Room

Visiting in February we didn't really need the skip-the-line part of this tour as there were no queues, but we did get the benefit of a private tour, as there were just two of us on the tour and the expertise and knowledge of our tour guide. We'd met our guide, Olga, the previous day during our visit to the Hermitage and were looking forward to the tour of Catherine's Palace with her. The Palace is beautiful, breath-taking and stunning. Again Olga's love and passion for art came across during the tour. Olga also pointed out buildings of interest on our journeys, both too and from the Palace. The journey takes about 40 minutes by car, longer by public transport. I booked a transfer as I didn't feel confident in travelling by public transport. After travelling around the centre of St. Petersburg by bus I would consider making my own way there if I were to visit again.

Olga was an amazing guide ! She answered all of our questions and she was very pleasant and sweet !!!We learned a lot from her ! All in all it was an amazing experience!!!

Wow - The lady was so knowledgable and wonderful in every way. She was very inspiring in her history knowledge. I would highly recommend.

We truly enjoyed every moment; we would book our guide anytime for any tour again.

Just awesome.Historical Place,very impressive and Untersagung.Must do Tour.
