Commence your small-group tour with pickup from your St Petersburg hotel and climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan destined for the town of Pushkin, formerly known as Tsarskoye Selo. Receive a fascinating introduction to the rich history of the regal residences as you travel. 

On arrival at your first palace, marvel at the colossal Baroque façade of Catherine Palace and delight in the vibrant swathe of color that decorates the structure. Embark on an informative guided tour of the gilded interiors, seeing opulent rooms like the White Vestibule, the Great Hall and the Throne Room.  

Be mesmerized as you stroll into the Amber Room, a chamber considered the palace’s spectacular centerpiece; gaze at amber mosaics that were reclaimed after being lost in World War I and listen to fascinating facts from your guide. 

After strolling through the pretty gardens, head next to Pavlovsk Paalce, if time and weather permit. Enjoy the splendor of the neoclassical structure as you explore grand rooms like the Egyptian Vestibule and the Italian Hall. 

Relax in the gardens and then return to your vehicle for the journey back to your St Petersburg Hotel.

This tour was very informative. The guide and the driver were great. The Catherine Palace and the Pavlovsk Palace were spectacular and Olga, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and able to answer all our questions. Much to our surprise we found that we enjoyed the Pavlovsk Palace the most. The crowds were much smaller and the gardens peaceful. Highly recommend this tour.
