  • Our tour was run by Ulko Tour, a local tour company. The guide was responsible and knowledgeable and gave us great insights. Sometimes it's good to save time and money to just read stuff on wikipedia, but at a place like this that's detail-rich there's really some benefit to have a tour guide points you to the things to look for in the architecture, the ground, the arts and history, etc. We had just 4 people in our group that day my wife and I plus another couple. Everything from communication and transportation to the tour itself went smoothly and the guide took us after the tour to a restaurant Odessa for a great meal. As for the sight itself, between Catherine Palace and Peterhof I would probably choose Peterhof if I have limited time, but if you have time it's certainly worth visiting both. We went on a day with good weather and I could imagine the experience may be different if it was a rainy day, but that's true for all outdoor places.

  • We had the guide and driver to ourselves as there were only the two of us on this tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and engaging and we thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would recommend it to everyone. We had a great time and loved the Amber Room.

  • Excellent tour. There were only six of us and we traveled in a comfortable mini-van. The tour guide was knowledgeable, accommodating and spoke English very well. We were able to see everything that we had hoped to see and still had some of the day left for other activities. Highly recommended.

  • The guide was amazing and the tour perfect. It is an expensive tour, but it is worthwhile.

  • Our guide Isabel was very well versed in the history of Catherine's Palace. She was friendly and professional.

  • Our guide, Lisa, was both entertaining and informative. She gave us new insights into the lives of the local people in St Petersburg. The trip was very enjoyable despite the weather. We would recommend this trip to anyone with an interest.

  • A truly wonderful visit,with Victoria as a guide.
    She was so pleasant and knowledgeable with excellent English.
    The whole trip was more than we could have expected.
    Thank-you very much.

  • Great tour. The guide did a good job with description of major works in the collection

  • Catherine Palace and garden tour was unbelievably special. Our disappointment was our guide. Thoroughly uninterested in being with us. We have visited from Australia to experience this beautiful place once and for the most part our guide looked more at her phone than help with information about where we were. It was a disappointing travel experience, sadly a waste of time for the guide as well as for us.

  • Outstanding service! Our guide Nadya spoke perfect English, was very knowledgeable and friendly. She and the driver arrived promptly at our hotel and even had some nice extras for us: rain coats and bottles of water. We are very pleased with the tour and already recommended it to our friends.
