Visiting 2 summer palaces in one day with a local private guide


In the begining of the 18th century Peterhof became official summer residence of Peter the Great and then it was used by all Russian emperors for official receptions, parties etc.

Tsarskoe Selo was founded at the same time and the palace there belonged to Catherine the 1st - wife of Peter the 1st (Great).

During the tour we will visit the Grand Peterhof palace and the Catherine palace in Tsarskoe Selo.

Customers pay cash to me for the tickets to the palaces I bought for them in advance.

In Peterhof we can visit just the Lower park with fountains (without visiting the Grand Palace) or one of the "small" palaces.

The Catherine palace is closed on Tuesdays and the last Monday of the month.

A Recent Review of this tour

Very good organised day tour of both Peterhof and Catherine Palace at Pushkin by Nikolay. He drives his own car and very safely so you can rest in between touring. Nikolay is a fountain of knowledge about Peterhof, Catherine Palace and Russia in general. My wife and I really gained a greater understanding of Russian culture and history, all thanks to him. We highly recommend this tour. Spasiba Nikolay!!!������
