Payment information  

  • A 50% deposit must be paid at the time of reservation. The remaining balance is due upon your arrival to St. Petersburg. In St. Petersburg you can either pay in cash (only Rubles are accepted) or by credit card;
  • After completing your online payment, you will get a payment confirmation.

If you or any other member of your party decides to cancel your confirmed booking you must notify us in writing.

Availability and Notes

  • Price is calculated for guests staying at a hotel/apartment
  • The tour is not available on Tuesday due to the museum’s operating hours. During the off-season, the museum is closed on the last Monday of the month.
  • Please, dress appropriately for the weather.

Tips and Discounts

  • Children (7 - 17 y.o.)/students get 5 USD off the tour price. Students must have an ISIC card, otherwise the discount is not available.
  • Gratuities to the guide and driver are not included in the tour price. The sum you wish to give to your guide and driver after a well-done tour should be up to the western standards (approximately 15%). It is a good idea to divide gratuity between your guide and driver and give it separately to them: 10% to the guide and 5% to the driver. Please have some cash with you (USD, EUR or RUB) for this reason, but it is always up to you!

The Catherine Palace Tour

The abundance of golden decorations is one of the most striking features of the palace interiors. Crystal gilded chandeliers, priceless parquet floors, multiple mirrors, blue colored delft tile stoves, bright silk on the walls – all that will leave you breathless and charmed. The most well-known room in the palace is the Amber Room. It looks like a large jewel-box all covered with amber panels and decorated with mosaics. Its history is very intriguing: while the Room was fully restored in the 21 century, still many people are trying to discover the original one.

 1.00 pm – 2.00 pm

Guided tour of the Catherine garden

After you finish your tour inside the palace you will get a chance to see the picturesque garden. Walking down the terraces you will admire the Cold Bath Pavilion and Cameron gallery that provides a beautiful panoramic view of the surroundings. However, the best view awaits at the Great Pond that unites small pavilions around. A relaxing stroll in the garden enveloped in lush greenery will be a perfect ending of the tour.

Back to your hotel or any other place in the city center
