Alexander took us to Tsarskoe Selo (Catherine the Great's summer palace) and the Peterhof. The Mercedes wagon was perfect for the four of us and the timing of the day just right. For instance we did not go inside the Peterhof because the over-the-top decor was similar to Tsarskoe Selo and we took the time to walk through the grounds to see the little house on the water where Peter and his wife Catherine actually preferred to live. Alexander is a strong guide with lots of historical knowledge.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear James, Thank you very much for being my customers. It was my pleasure to show you around these two Imperial summer residencies in one day.
