    This is an incredible tour with a very knowledgeable and fun guide. Very professional. You go straight into the Palace skipping the long lines. A St. Petersburg must!

    Our guide was lovely and most knowledgable. When booking this tour keep in mind whether the Hermitage and the Pavlovsk are open. We experienced long queues because it was a day when both were closed so everyone heads out to Pushkin, yet it was certainly a worthwhile tour. Even though it was a 4 - 5 hour tour we only had a chance for a coffee stop late morning and there was no real opportunity for a food stop, so bring some food with you.

    Well worth the trip out of Moscow. The palace was beautiful and the Amber Room unusual. Be sure to take the train, not a car. Moscow traffic can be awful.

    It was only 2 of us on the tour so we had the guide to ourselves. She was very knowledgeable and her English was very good. She answered many questions and made references to other sites we had already visited to link all the history together. The highlight of the tour is the ability to skip the long line outside the palace, it saves you so much time!

    The correct name of this tour should be Catherine Palace and Park because that's what the tour really included. Alexander Palace, Alexander Park, Pushkin Lyceum were not even mentioned. The transportation was well organized but the content of the tour and presentation were mediocre. The guide, I believe her name was Julia, was not exciting. Also, her accent was strong making it even harder to catch what she was saying. We'd have much preferred to go alone and use an audio guide at the museum so that we could have moved at our own pace.

    It was OK. Our guide was really sweet but I like it when the guide tells us a lot about the history of the place or the people. Russia has such a rich history that I expected something else. Anyway, the palace is awesome, we had plenty of time to walk around the gardens which are really something and our guide answered everything we asked.
