Had the best tour with Jane who was extremely knowledgeable and was a lovely person very attentive even when we were walking in all that snow. Boris our driver was brilliant on time and loved the Mercedes. the horse drawn ride at the end was great and the driver such a character. Well worth paying for a private tour such a wonderful day thanks to Jane and Boris.

The Pavlovsk palace is definitely worth a visit. The guide (Jane) was so fascinating and full of passion that even the children were not bored. We visited Katarinapaleis on the outside, after which we ended the tour with a trip in a horse-drawn carriage. Cold (early November) but super cozy.
