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.

We tailored our tour with Nikolai for Petergof, the Ekaterina Summer Palace and the Hermitage Museum. He knew how to best use of our time; e.g. we entered the main palace easily whereas we could tell it was very crowded by the time we left out. Being a tailored tour, he was very open to tweak it and provided suggestions along the route about what to see and responded all of our questions demonstrating that he is very knowledgeable of these locations. Outstanding job!! Highly recommended!!
