I do not start programs with a transfer to Pushkin or Peterhof as it is about a 1½ hour trip. In the beginning of the day it is just boring, but in the middle - after you have already been walking and sight-seeing for few hours it will provide a well needed rest, so you are refreshed for the next stage of the tour.
Standard programs can be changed in any way to meet your personal requirements. However the daily rate of a customized tour - depending on the inclusions - will come to 300-400USD per person per day against 245USD for a standard one.
You will see me waiting for you once you have disembarked and cleared passport control.

Marvel at the magnificent interiors of the winter palace while viewing the stunning collections of European art which are displayed in the museum. I am happy to adapt the tour to your interests: it can be focused on the history of Russian royal family plus the most impressive interiors OR on the art collection - we can agree it in advance.
