Tour to Catherine Palace with VIP entrance, Paul's Palace in Pavlovsk and Lower Park of Peterhoff

This tour offers unique opportunity to see all the most beautiful summer Residences of Russian Imperial Family in one day! Built in different times, in reigns of different rulers, these palaces and parks tell you more about Romanoffs than any other museum, book, or movie. If you feel like exploring the city on your own and invite tour guide only for those sites that are harder to reach and book yourself - then this itinerary is a perfect solution. In the high tourist season the museums are very crowded and it is hard to book the tickets, you will need wait in the long queues. This tour includes VIP entrance to Catherine Palace and lets you avoid all the inconvenience of the trip to suburbs, you will enjoy site-seeing on the way to/from the palaces, have lunch at the authentic Russian place, we'll have time to discuss issues on Russian reality during lunch and on the drives, and you will get a feeling of everyday routines and city beat in the Metro. It will be the most memorable day of your journey! Welcome!
