What people are saying about Palace Square
Our guide Tim was wonderful. He navigated the building with much grace and poise. He was courteous and assisted other people that were not even part of our tour. His commentary on the history, art and architecture was very informative. He told little jokes along the way. We all had an ear phone and audio box to hear everything very clearly. We skipped the line at the beginning and could not believe how many people were already waiting. For your first time going to the Hermitage make sure you pay the extra for this tour.
Recommend for independent travellers. Targeted all the significant exhibits. Great duration and detail for peeps like us that aren’t culture vultures. Anecdotes were funny & informative. Pace & timing was keen and managed to only run into congestion towards the last 25%. Eg. Cruisers & selfie sticks.
The first two days after your arrival in beautiful St. Petersburg should be spent taking the superb Hop-on Hop-off Bus & Boat Tour! It's an easy and inexpensive way to acquaint yourself with the layout and major sights of this amazing city.
With such a vast collection it’s hard to imagine how it could be navigated in just 3 hours. But Katya shepherded us through expertly, focused on the most amazing highlights and shared stories to bring both paintings and artifacts alive.
Toni was great, organizing us into the Hermitage with a minimum of fuss. He answered questions, steered us around the camera-knocking hordes and helped us notice details in the art. We were lucky to have him!
