Tour of Catherine’s Palace. Highly recommend!
Lydia & our driver picked us up from our hotel in the morning and took us out to Pushkin to Catherine’s Palace. There were just two of us and it was an intimate and engaging tour. The tour started from the moment we got in the car and we learned so many interesting things about the history of St Petersburg and the architecture of the city. Once we got to Pushkin we visited Theodore’s Church and then went to Catherine’s Palace. Lydia was a wonderful guide and filled with so much interesting information! She was happy to answer all the questions we had and tailored the tour to our pace. After doing the interior of the palace we went walked around the grounds which was a little cold, but worth it to see the beautiful park. There was still ice on the water and none of the fountains were working, but because it was slightly off season we didnt feel overrun by other people. On the way back to the city Lydia was able to recommend places to us for our specific interests which was helpful. I don’t feel that we would have been able to get as much out of going to Catherine’s Palace without Lydia. An amazing tour, would highly recommend!
Amazing trips to Peterhof, Pushkin and a city tour
Found this company on an internet search and love them. My 1st visit to Russia and only have a couple of days. Booked Pushkin, Peterhof and a city tour. All 3 were great.
Picked up at my hotel and dropped off which is awesome. It was just me and the guide each time. They spoke amazing English.
I cant even decide which trip was best. They were all great. I’m a total WW2 geek and my guide pointed out lots of really interesting places along the way.
Will be back in May with family so have said to my mum she needs to book several tours. Highly recommend.
We are glad that we booked the group tour through Grandpetersbourg. Julia was very patient to answer my questions and explain the tour details. The tour cost is reasonable. Our tour guide Lydia is a very nice beautiful Russian girl. She is knowledgeable, kind and considerate. All our group members ( 9 people) like her.
We give Grandpetersbourg a 5 star and will refer to our friends.
August 18-19, 2017 St. Petersburg
We, a group of 8 seniors from California had a private tour of St. Petersburg for two full days. Our guide, Lidia, was very knowledgeable, professional and caring. Besides enjoying the lovely city, we learned so much of the history of St. Petersburg. We had a jammed pack itinerary. We were fascinated and yet did not want to stop for fear of missing out on important scenes. Our driver, Slava, though speak little English, cared for us every step of the way. They performed their job well and treated us as family members. I would highly recommend Grand Petersburg as a first rate tour company and its our guides are truly outstanding. outstanding.
“Three lovely days”, June 5-7,2017
Though I’m an old hand in St. Petersburg I’m not good with historical overviews, so I hired this company to guide Four dear friends of mine to the Hermitage, Peterhoff and on a long Canal ride with a guide. Julia was my contact, and she was easy and agreeable to organize details. Each event went as planned, and the boats, drivers and guides were friendly, knowledgeable and well organized. We enjoyed the experience. I would use Julia’s organization again. Our guides were Julia, Anna and Elena.
