    Visiting in February we didn't really need the skip-the-line part of this tour as there were no queues, but we did get the benefit of a private tour, as there were just two of us on the tour and the expertise and knowledge of our tour guide. We'd met our guide, Olga, the previous day during our visit to the Hermitage and were looking forward to the tour of Catherine's Palace with her. The Palace is beautiful, breath-taking and stunning. Again Olga's love and passion for art came across during the tour. Olga also pointed out buildings of interest on our journeys, both too and from the Palace. The journey takes about 40 minutes by car, longer by public transport. I booked a transfer as I didn't feel confident in travelling by public transport. After travelling around the centre of St. Petersburg by bus I would consider making my own way there if I were to visit again.

  • From St. Petersburg: Catherine Palace and Amber Room Tour

On a visit to the world-famous Amber Room, your guide will tell you about how the room disappeared and was recreated. It required over 2 decades of work that took place in the workshops of Trsaskoye Selo.

    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.
