What people are saying about Pushkin, St. Petersburg

Very nice tour and time effective (you still have half a day left)

It is difficult to get to see Catherine Palace in Carskoe Selo as an individual visitor. In particular if you do not want to spend the full day there (long queues and individual visitors cannot go in during the morning until noon). I wanted to have a different programme in the afternoon and still wanted to see Carskoe Selo including the interior of Catherine Palace. This trip was an excellent way of achieving that. We departed from Sankt Peterburg at 9 am and returned back around 2 pm so I still had most of the afternoon. I would not be able to do that individually. Oleg the guide was really active, trying to pass information, checking whether we understand, whether we are satisfied. We were not waiting anywhere in a queue, it all worked very smoothly. Transport in a van was comfortable. Well done!

Great value for rich history & time saved

Tickets were hassle-free. After our tour of the palace we saw the queue....... no wonder some people spend up to 4 hours waiting for tickets. Totally worth the price given the time needed to stand in line. Our guide, Alexandra is an extremely lovely girl. She told us the best spots for pictures and of course the rich history of Catherine Palace. She is very knowledgeable and helpful. (and she also gave us tips on best restaurants in St Petersburg!) Couldn't have asked for a better guide. Overall a great experience and would 100% recommend the tour instead of doing this on your own!

Pushkin: Catherine Palace and Gardens Guided Tour Reviewed by Anonymous, 27/06/2019

Fascinating palace and lovely garden! Thank your the great time:D

My guide Tachiana (sorry, if I spelled wrong) and our driver MichaelI came to pick me up at my hotel and after less than one hour's drive in a comfortable car, we entered the Catherine's palace without any quequing and started our tour. If you really want to skip the line, go for this tour! When we were done with the tour, the waiting time to the palace was four hours! I was mesmerized by the beautiful palace and the garden where Catherine Ⅱ cherished and took a stroll, maybe with one of her lovers. We were lucky the weather was lovely, and I took many memorable pics.

Lovely tour; helpful, punctual driver, excellent knowledgeable guide.

Pick up was on time in a good, comfortable people carrier. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable as she came from the area and gave us a history lesson both on the drive there and back, pointing out all the important buildings and statues which I thought was great. The tour of both Palaces and gardens was wonderful, our guide also told us the local legends as well as telling us the stories behind behind every room. I don’t usually do tours, preferring to muddle through myself but I would recommend this tour without hesitation.

Daria and Oleg were dream guide and driver for a wonderful visit

From the welcome to the goodbye it was a wonderful day Our guide met us right on time at our hotel and took us to meet our excellent driver who made St Petersburg driving seem easy Daria's knowledge opened the secrets of the Palace and many other aspects of St Petersburg even introducing us to Eliseyev. The day went so smoothly and quickly and we had a lot of fun on the way.
