The tour was great from the hotel pick in time till the end. The guide Elizabeth was excellent and fluent in English. She gave us a great tour (very detail) during our visit to Peterhof and Tsarskoe Selo. Also, the minivan was so comfortable and driver Sergey did a great job to handle heavy traffic and bring us in time to all our sightseeing points. Thank you!

Lisa our guide for the day was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and incredibly helpful, her English was impeccable. She would chat on all Russian subjects past and present while travelling which made the day go so fast. The Russian restaurant for lunch was of good quality. I can not emphasize enough the importance of a small group guided tour around Perterhof as you were not allowed to stop moving inside the building. You skip the extremely long waiting line for entrance tickets and again security. It is part of a must see trip to St Petersburg. Tsarkoye Selo ( Catherine's palace) was also spectacular and well worth the visit. The small group Tour of Selo allowed us to skip the queues again but more importantly allowed us individual access to the building away from the crowds of tourists so we could have quiet access and take our time which made the trip all the more enjoyable.
Denis our driver helped to make it an unforgettable day that was well worth the money.
I felt it was the only way to appreciate the palaces. Do ask if you can have Lisa as a guide, you will not regret the decision. She was charming.

This was a wonderful tour. We were picked up at our hotel by the tour guide and a driver and taken to two major palaces in suburbssites that are in different directions from St. Petersburg.-- the only way that we could have seen both Peterhof and Catherine's Palace in Tsarkoye Selo and still see everything else we wanted to in the three days were in St. Petersburg. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful, and the whole day went exactly as we had hoped. Both Peterhof and Catherine's Palace are well worth visiting.

This tour is well worth the money. We received enough time to visit both Peterhof and Tsarskoye Selo in April. The driver was friendly. Our guide, Sophia, was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the sights. We learned a lot. The time flew. Also, there were a number of surprise stops during the day. Would certainly recommend this tour to complete any trip to St. Petersburg.
