The trip go to both palace in one day time, with comfortable car and informative guide. No need to queue and wait long for entering the site. With simple traditional Russian food as lunch. I enjoy that simple meal. Much much better than go there just on my own. I may have more time to stay in each site and won’t be able to learn so many interesting background information about the Palaces and the Parks.

Excellent Guide

One of the main attractions turned Tobe closed after we started the tour. The guide confronted a nasty staff at the attraction but she tried to do something. (Later I found that Mondays are scheduled offs according to my guide book, though) She tried to find alternatives and extended her attendance beyond the schedule and we’ve got the refund for difference. She was very competent in speaking English and answered all of my questions even outside the tour. Her hospitality was very impressive.

Olimme ostaneet kokopäiväretken Pietarista Pietarhoviin ja Katariinan palatsiin. Olon sopinut haun hotllista, mutta siitä huolimatta jouduin whatsupissa selvittämään asiaa tietämättömälle virkailijalle edellisenä iltana jonkin aikaa, ennekuin asia järjestyi. Pietarhovissa opas Tatjana (,joka oli oikein hyvä) kertoi, että emme pääsekään Katariinan palatsiin, vaan tilalle tarjottiin Pavlovskin palatsia. Sinällään ok, koska emme ole sielläkään käyneet, mutta emmehän ostaneet tällaista matkaa. Lounaan piti kuulua hintaan, mutta sekin tuli oppaalle yllätyksenä ja hän joutui sitä järjestelemään erikseen. Kävimme Katariina palatsin portilla ja näimme, kuinka yksittäisiä turisteja jonotti lippukassalla lippuja ja pääsi sisään. Meitä oli oppaan lisäksi vain kaksi. Selityksenä muutokselle oli, että Katariinan palatsissa oli liikaa kiinalaisia! Jos meitä olisi ollut isompi porukka, selitys olisi vielä mennyt läpi. Olimme kuitenkin varanneet ja maksaneet reissun useampi kuukausi etukäteen!
