I am traveling solo to St Petersburg in early September. It seems recommended to travel to Catherine Palace via a tour, but most of them are really expensive. The South African currency does not hold up well, unfortunately.
Citybus tours seems to be the most reasonably priced option & has a 5 hour tour with an English speaking guide for 3500 rubles. .https://en.gocitybus.ru/cruise/suburban/ekskursiya-v-pushkin-na-angliyskom.html
Has anyone travelled with them and would you recommend them. If not is there another reasonably priced option.
Thank you for your assistance
