Overview

Board your motor coach for a narrated drive to the suburbs of St. Petersburg: to the south to see the Tsarskoye Selo (Pushkin) and to the west to Peterhof, passing Stalin-era buildings, modern residential apartments and dachas (country houses). This comprehensive full day tour gives you a unique opportunity to admire the most splendid palace and park ensembles of the 18th century that belonged to the Russian tsars.

Know More about this tour

Catherine Palace Designed by Rastrelli, the ornate Baroque Palace is over 1,000 feet long and features an ornate blue facade. Gold onion domes crown the palaces north end, the site of the chapel. Your tour visits the White Vestibule, Grand Hall, the Portrait Hall, the Crimson Pilaster Room and of course the famous Amber Room.
On the way to Peterhof you will have a chance to try traditional Russian cuisine in a local restaurant.
Peterhof Park Travel to another former summer Imperial residence. Set in magnificent parks, Peterhof is reminiscent of Versailles. The parks are dotted with countless fountains, charming pavilions and summer houses.
The diversity of the fountains in the park is surprising. From monumental ensembles like the Samson Cascade to the ever popular Joke Fountains, including one which sprays anyone who steps on a particular paving stone.
If the weather permits, we provide a complimentary Hydrofoil trip. Hydrofoil is a safe and fast boat which rises above the surface of the water. The trip takes 45 minutes.
