famous Amber Room plus Russian Versailles private tour
Don't want to miss "must see" suburban residences - Tsar's Selo and Peterhof? This tour is what you are looking for.
Tsar's Selo is the most beautiful summer residence built under Elizabeth Petrovna. The interiors of the Palace are breathtaking here you can feel the scale of the wealth of our country!
One of the gems of the palace is, without a doubt, the famous Amber Room. "The eye, unused to seeing amber in such quantities, is captivated and blinded by the wealth and warmth of the tones. . . "
A wonderful Park is divided for French regular garden and English landscape garden.
But if we speak about the gardens the best place we can ever find is Peterhof, formerly a suburban residence of the Russian Emperors and now the world-famous "capital of fountains". The principles of water supply discovered by Peter the Great are still in use today! The tour includes Grand Palace and fountain garden.

Irina was very knowledgeable, prompt and friendly. She is from the city and has both personal and historical observations of the city. I would definitely recommend a guide for the city to help with lines at key attractions and to get the perspective of a Russian citizen.
