The dancers and singers are very good, very funny show and some songs touch the heart !! Finding the palace is not difficult, the aperitif is well served and good. As already specified by the others, the guys on the show deserve the biggest stage !! I recommend to everyone !!
Second visit to St. Petersburg and second visit to the show. Will always come along to experience this entertainment whenever I return providing J don’t have to queue up again to obtain a paper ticket when I’ve got one downloaded on my mobile app. Ridiculous.
Fun Way of exploring the city! Saving so much time, as on wheels :) Eli and Konstantin take good care of u, making sure u r in safe hands! :) Strongly recommend this way of sightseeing! Safe and Fun!
Very nice show. The snack was light but correct. There is no signage for the palace. If you can't read Cyrillic. even with WAZE it was difficult to find. A passerby helped us.
Very beautiful show as much by the costumes, as by the dances and songs ...
