Catherine palace tour

catherine palace

A tour of the Catherine palace, the stunning former summer residence of russian tzars and home to the famous Amber room, is a “must do” for the majority of tourists . The palace is situated in Tsarskoe Selo, a small town about 30 km from St Petersburg.  During the tour you will see the stunning palace interiors and will take a walk in the picturesque park. Please note that a visit to Pavlovsk palace can be added to this tour.

Advantages of our Catherine palace tour:

  • We can do to the Catherine palace tour by public transport (which is really cheap) or a private car. Of course, private vehicle can be arranged upon agreement. Private car is a must for cruise ship passengers and is highly recommended for parties with children and groups of 4+ people.
  • If you choose public transport, we stay in Tsarskoe Selo as long as you wish, no need to hurry back after only half an hour of “free” time.
  • We take a walk in the gardens of the Catherine palace as well.
  • It’s a private tour. That means your company, your pace and your own guide.
  • We book tickets in advance, so you won’t need to waste your precious time in a line.
  • A tour of Pavlovsk palace can be added to the tour (in that case a car is needed)
  • During the tour we enjoy the Catherine  palace interiors and nature, not the “best in the area” souvenir shops (unless you require it yourself)
