St. Petersburg Catherine Palace Excursion Reviews

St. Petersburg Catherine Palace cruise excursion
Overall Rating
Catherine Palace, in the small town of Pushkin outside St. Petersburg, is a breathtaking example of baroque design. The bright blue exterior is gilded with more than 200 pounds of gold.

Another beautiful palace, loaded with fantastic stairways, art, draperies, fixtures, and shining floors. It is easy to imagine the rulers luxuriating in the beautiful rooms, welcoming diplomats, merchants, ambassadors, etc. A palace fit for a queen.

Long bus rides. Peterfof Palace, though beyond words, is a reconstruction looking new of an old bombed out palace. The garden is amazing even though new. Not enough time to see anything on the tour with any enjoyment, too many people moving too fast, too much shoving, etc. Expensive, paid $495 for all day tour, simple and not tasty (to us at least) food but with entertainment. Long days. Best part of the tour was return to ST Petersburg by airfoil boat.

Amazing place, and we were lucky enough to avoid queues to get in. Once inside though you're at the mercy of the crowds. Our guide was great, very informative and made sure we were all able to see enough despite the number of people around

This was a special excursion to Catherine Palace, 'An Evening with the Czars'. Only opened for our group so about 60 people. Great way to see the Palace and environs. Music, champagne, dancing, a meal all made this a fabulous outing.

Elenya our guide knew so much about the history of the palace and shared it with us. In before the general public, no line up, no crowds inside. A must see for any history buffs.

Beautiful palace. Tour guide was very knowledgeable about Russian history and the tour inside the Palace was very interesting. During the City Tour, bus broke down, but the efficiency of driver and tour guide got us a replacement bus within 45 min so we were able to have our complete tour of many beautiful sites in St Petersburg.
