8 hour tour with a private guide and a driver
You will see two amazing former royal residences - Catherine Palace (located in the town Pushkin, 15 miles south of St Petersburg) and Paul's Palace. While the first one is a paragon of Russian barock style and was the favorite palace of Peter's daughter Elizabeth, another one, commissioned by Catherine the Great for her son Paul, was designed in neoclassical style.
It is a truly charming palace where you get the feeling that this was the well loved home of real people.
You will also visit the striking world famous Amber Room.

Our guide, Kate provided an excellent tour of the Catherine and Pavlovsk palaces. Her Engish is excellent and she delivered the tour in a pleasant, unhurried manner that was flexible to our interests yet efficient and highly informative. She arranged to go to Pavlovsk first and the Catherine's near noon, avoiding most crowded times. We were able to view everything as long as we wished, including the Amber room. All questions answered in pleasant, knowledgeable manner.
