About
This private tour allows you to visit the legendary Catherine Palace with the Amber Room, take a walk in the garden of the palace and see some of the most beautiful metro stations afterwards. Traveling by public transport gives more flexibility, as you don't need to pay for a car while it is waiting for you. Beside that, you will be travelling like a local and will be able to see the most famous metro stations that are often nicknamed "underground palaces".

IT IS A MUST
Mar. 2020
My husband and I had this tour in March 2020, we LOVED it, it was MARVELOUS, and you should do it too!

I have to say my husband and I were stunned at how beautiful the palace was. Mind blowing as was the experience, we also realized we really would not enjoy The Catherine place much as we did without all the information our brilliant, knowledgeable and funny guide told us, about the Russian court dances, and fan language, and secrets of the royal court and personal life of the tzars and tzarinas.
It’s also totally worth it to to have a private guide and a private tour too, as you get into the palace in no time skipping all the enormous lines. (Yes, even in March this year!)

On the same day we did the metro tour. And again even if you know where to go without a guide it would be just a selfie-trip, with Alice however it became a true cultural experience and at times a revelation.

I always pick little private agencies for my trips and I always find out I’m right to do so because they have personal approach to clients and the guides are usually the best there because they value their reputation. I was glad that this agency really did their best for me and my husband and will surely be using them again! Thank you Alice so very much.

Catherine Palace
Our guide Nadya was one of the smartest and most knowledgable guides I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. She reminded me of a trip I had in Luxor and I found out after the trip that the guide was a world famous Egyptologist! She is very highly educated and if you’re looking for a really fun and interesting trip then this is the best you’ll get for this venue.

Excellent! Wonderful! The best!!
Our guide for the day was Nadya, who picked us up from our hotel early in the day. The tour has a great mix of palace and public transport, so you travel like a local. I loved it. The metro is beautiful and the bus transport authentic. Catherine palace was simply wonderful. Nadya is probably the most informed guide we’ve ever had, her knowledge is second to none and she is kind and friendly. We really enjoyed our day and I would recommend Nadya and this company without a second’s hesitation!!

Catherine Palace by public transport
May 2018 • Couples
Our visit to Catherine Palace was organised quickly and efficiently by Alisa, who also managed to reschedule our visit when, at the last moment, the Palace was closed on our chosen date of 26 May. Katya was our guide for the day and she proved to be excellent. Her enthusiasm and knowledge were evident, but she did not overload us with too much information. It was also a pleasure to bypass the very long queues of individual visitors waiting to buy tickets. Overall this was a very enjoyable experience and I would highly recommend Alisa and Katya.
