    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: City Break Tours St. Petersburg, St. Petersburg Russia

    Meet your private guide in the hotel and head for the outskirts of the city.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Park And Gardens of Peterhof, Razvodnaya st., 2, Peterhof, St. Petersburg Russia

    You will take a short hydrofoil ride to reach the Lower Park of Peterhof. This comfortable trip along the Neva River and the Gulf of Finland will only take 30 min. In Peterhof, you will enjoy the amazing views of the Marine Canal, the Grand Cascade and Petrodvorets (the Grand Palace) along with amazing fountains and gilded statues. The guide will show you the famous joke fountains that splash the passersby when they least expect. It's no wonder that everything in Peterhof is done with such luxury - this was the official summer residence of Peter I, who founded St Petersburg.

    Having strolled the Park of Peterhof, take your seat in a comfortable car/minivan and leave for the city of Pushkin.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Catherine Palace and Park, Sadovaya St., 7 Tsarskoye Selo, Pushkin, St. Petersburg 196601 Russia

    You will visit the summer favorite estate of Catherine the Great called the Tsar’s Village (Tsarskoye Selo in Russian). You will be guided through the luxurious gala salons of Catherine’s Palace including the Hall of Lights or the Hall of Mirrors widely recognized for being used in a Disney cartoon ‘Anastasia’. The interiors of the palace will surprise you with an abundance of gilded molding and decorations. The pearl of the visit is seeing the Amber Room, a unique interior created by the Italian architect Bartolomeo Rastrelli. The walls of the room are decorated with the panels made of amber, mirrors and gilded moldings.

    Before returning to St Petersburg, you will have time to enjoy the landscape park of Tsarskoye Selo, decorated with flowers, statues, pavilions and artificial lakes and ponds.

    Return to the hotel.

    Duration: 2 hours
