What people are saying about St. Petersburg
Pick up was on time in a good, comfortable people carrier. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable as she came from the area and gave us a history lesson both on the drive there and back, pointing out all the important buildings and statues which I thought was great. The tour of both Palaces and gardens was wonderful, our guide also told us the local legends as well as telling us the stories behind behind every room. I don’t usually do tours, preferring to muddle through myself but I would recommend this tour without hesitation.
Arriving at location for bus was terrible. The employees on duty had no idea what bus to get on--sent us to 3 wrong buses before the correct one arrived. They were rude, ignoring our questions. We talked to 3 people and none helped us. Once the guide and bus arrived it was a different story. Great assistance, friendliness and helpfulness in loading my wheelchair. Guide Olga (I believe was her name) was knowledgeable and so kind. Experience was wonderful but work on that meeting place for embarking a lot.
We booked online, and received clear instructions as to how to find our tour company. We exchanged our printed vouchers for tickets. The trip out was slow because of traffic and it took a bit of lining up for the tour to get started, but once we got going it was very good and our guide was very knowledgable. We toured the whole castle and the gardens. The price was roughly the same as most tour last of this nature, so was good value for money.
I’ve had a lovely experience visiting the city of Pushkin! The tour guide was excellent, he (Alexander) had a great knowledge about the St. Petersburg and specifically about the Cathrine Palace. He explained everything in detail fluently. I really enjoyed it! Also, on the way going to Pushkin, he gave us a great information about the city and it’s major buildings. Moreover, the mini bus was clean and comfortable. Highly recommended!
This is a whistle stop tour of the main attractions at both palaces. Which suited me fine, Olga is a great guide and clearly knows what she is doing. You will see the key items but be warned you will be moving fast. If thats what you're after then this tour is for you. If you want a more sedate pace then you need something else.
