Great private tour- highly recommended. Save time in long lines

, Sep 2018
Our guide Ilyah is wonderful. He was very informative, had a good sense of humor and very gracious. He saved us so much time from all the long lines and crowds at both venues. Seeing the cost and time required for the individual tours to do Peterof and Catherine's Palace individually was about half as much but takes twice the amount of time. So if you can afford to do a private tour, I highly recommend it because all that time saved is the time in the lines and waiting for fellow tourists. Whereas, with the private guide your time is used more efficiently, especially if you only have a few days in St. Petersburg. Our guide gave us lots of information about the history of Russia, the wars, the complex political history and gave rich life to the architecture and city at large. We also engaged in what seemed like very honest and open conversations on all topics such as climate change and social commentary. Highly recommended.
