Nikolai was a pleasant and informative guide who made the experience both interesting and easy for us. He picked us up right at the door of our apartment building and had arranged tickets so we didn't need to wait in a long line. He expertly guided us through the palace. We don't like to zip through, but really like to get a good look at things, take pictures and go at our own pace; he helped keep us clear of the enormous tour groups and helped us see the palace on our terms. Excellent experience.
