Irina was very professional and we were able to tour the Palace without waiting in line. She was very informative and we had time to also visit the gardens and listen to the singers in the outdoor dome. We highly recommend this tour!

Tour guide wasn’t very knowledgable and talkative.
We could hardly hear what she was talking about
The overall feeling is that she doesn’t enjoy this profession.
Luckily Catherine palace and gardens were so pretty
