i'm not regret getting this tour at all. you are really skip the line. if you want to spend more time walking in the palace rather than being in the line, just get this tour. when i was in side the palace and look outside to see so many people wait in the line to get in palace i think all my money is well spent already.

Excellent guide

We toured Catherine Palace with Nora who is an excellent guide. Her English is great and she is very knowledgeable about Saint Petersburg, Catherine’s Palace and Russian history. She was able to answer all our questions and shared a little bit about her life and typical Russian life which was so interesting to us. We were the only two on the tour so of course we had her full attention and she was so engaged and pleasant the whole time. Would highly recommend Nora and Get Your Guide. Very easy to order on line.

The tour was great, we were in a small group, only 10 people so it was really convenient. Our guide was very nice and friendly, she told us many interesting stories not only about the palace, but about russian history and culture in general as well. The palace and the gardens are beautiful, and with this tour we could skip the line, so it's totally worth it!
