Don't know where to start with. My first impression of the tour was even before we actually started. Maria contacted me on email and then in whatsapp to discuss the details. That was not what I expected. I thought it was a standard museum tour. Maria offered different time slots, palace inclusions and time for shopping. At the end we arranged everything rather quickly so when the tour started I knew exactly what is coming. 

Catherine Palace met all my expectations. It was exactly what I wanted to see. But what I really loved is shopping after tour in the Amber shop nearby. 

It was amazing! Maria did a fantastic job
