Contact us and your personal manager will create the package offer or several hours tour according to your request.
You will be met by our guide and driver in the lobby of your hotel, and we will take you out of St Petersburg, to one of its most picturesque suburbs. You will drive through the historic part of St Petersburg and hear the exciting stories about St Petersburg from your guide. Then you get to the pier to take a speed boat – hydrofoil – and travel to Peterhoff. This is an experience in itself, and you can enjoy the stunning views and landscapes around the Gulf of Finland. You dock right at Peterhoff lower park and start exploring the Russian Versailles straight away. Touring the enormous parkm you will see dozens of beautiful fountains, each of them has its own peculiar shape and a story behind. You will learn the history of Peterhoff, see the Grand Cascade and the Grand Palace, and you will also have a chance to go inside one of the smaller palaces, if you wish.
Then you will have some time for a lunch or a snack in the park, and you will be met by your driver to go to another beautiful town just out of St Petersburg. This town is now named after Pushkin – the famous Russian poet, who had quite a few close connections with this place. This is the location of another gala residence of the Tzars, which was given by Peter I to his beloved wife Catherine. You will have a wonderful opportunity to walk through the halls and be amazed by the amount of gold in the interiors. You will learn how the Emperors lived, and will have a unique chance to see the world-famous Amber Room with your own eyes. Not only this small hall is a masterpiece of art, it also has an incredible history, which will be presented to you as well. When you exit the palace, you will have some time to stroll around the delicate Catherine’s park and see, how different from Peterhoff and yet how admirable it is.
After the tour we drive you back to St Petersburg to drop you off at your hotel, or wherever else you prefer.
