Explore its grand state rooms, the superb white marble Grand Staircase and the spectacularly baroque Great Hall - an astonishing room of gilt, carved wood and mirrors - and the famous Amber Room.

We took a tour Pushkin and Peterhof on one day. Our guide Katya was so knowledgable and very informative and interested in our questions. This tour was exactly what we were hoping it would be. Everything was smooth and super great! May, 2009

The Amber room is worth the entire trip! The garden of the Catherine Palace is nice to stroll around if you have extra time. David and Rebecca, June 2009

We were there on a rainy day in April of 2010; but the experience was great. The artistry of the palaces, the molding in the rooms, the chandeliers (The Amber Room!) are all perfectly preserved and accentuated the art on display perfectly. The detail is complete down to place settings on the tables and displays of the clothing of the Czarinas. The guides know the historic and artistic background information in great detail, so they can provide a lot of useful perspective.
