Pushkin and Peterhof (or Pavlovsk - up to your choice) in one private tour

The tour will take you 7 hours that we'll spend in the country side.
Tzarskoe Selo and Peterhof (or Pavlovsk) - 2 absolutely different residences of Russian Tzars. Tzarskoe selo (or as it is called also Pushkin) is first of all splendid, bright, gilded barocco palace that was created to amaze, and it is still amazing with its unique Amber room and peaceful garden around. Here we visit both palace and garden.

Peterhof is famous with its kingdom of powerful fountains. It is another wonder of the world because fountains here are based on gravity only. We explore here only garden.

Second residence for your choice is classic Pavlovsk - sophisticated and cosy residence and huge garden at the same time. In Pavlovsk we will go inside of the palace and a little bit around of the garden.

I am looking forward to meeting you!
