What people are saying about St. Petersburg

Une visite guidée très bien organisée avec une guide exeptionnelle

The visit to Catherine Palace in Pushkin was ideally organized with a private car and driver to make it very confortable to visit. Plus we had a delightful and warmful guide, Elena, who made it possible to pass before the long line-up and arrival of tourist groups. Elena was a knowledgeable and devoted guide anxious to share and to help with wise advice to enhance our ongoing stay in the city. Elena is totally fluent in speaking French with an amazing conversational level. The four members of the family are unanimous to fully recommend Elena.

So glad we got the guided tour of The Hermitage.

Our guide Tim was wonderful. He navigated the building with much grace and poise. He was courteous and assisted other people that were not even part of our tour. His commentary on the history, art and architecture was very informative. He told little jokes along the way. We all had an ear phone and audio box to hear everything very clearly. We skipped the line at the beginning and could not believe how many people were already waiting. For your first time going to the Hermitage make sure you pay the extra for this tour.

St. Petersburg: Skip-the-Line Hermitage Tour Reviewed by Anne, 06/05/2019

Well organized, accurate description of what included and what not

The palace is gorgeous and taking a tour like this was ideal for us: skip the line, small group (not really much of a group activity as the tour of the palace is with audio guide and then one explores the gardens on his/her own), independent transportation to/from the site (we took a taxi to the palace and returned with the hydrofoil). Allow at least 2 hours to explore the huge lower gardens, and come half a hour before activity start time to explore the upper gardens as well (free).

Un moyen simple et efficace pour visiter le palais sans trop d'attente

We fully recommend this activity very well organized before and during the visit. The meeting point was ideally located and easy to find with full information received on a timely manner. The reception local staff (Radioguide) escorted us during indoor visit and was very nice and helpful (even help us to get a cab later on in the day in our way back).

Excellent knowledge of the museum, good natured.

I had a private tour just Olga and myself she was exceptional I fully recommended her she adjusted the tour to thinks I was more interested told me everything about city's history building's history and almost everything about the different kinds of painting
