Meet your guide in the lobby of your hotel for your private 7-hour tour and receive city maps, bottles of water, and a raincoat in case of rain. Travel in a private business-class vehicle to Pushkin. Visit the baroque Catherine Palace and take time to photograph the decorative architecture. Learn the history of the tsars who lived in the Palace from your guide. Admire the opulent Amber Room, with its amber panels backed with gold leaf.
Pause for lunch (own expense) and continue on to the Peterhof palace and garden complex. Explore the Grand Palace and look out on the Lower Park. View the fountain of Neptune in the Upper Park.
At the end of the day, return to your hotel.
