Again SPB Tours were our guides. We visited all of the masters works of art. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and this added to our experience. A bit long for kids. Well worth a visit. Palace Square was absolutely stunning.

They have ramps and lifts for wheelchair users and I think they have free wheelchairs - it is a huge place with the Winter palace. As it is very busy there you should contact them in advance to arrange for a wheelchair and... More

It is really easy to buy them at the machines, so I would not spend double the price. Once you have the ticket from the machine you can bypass the line, same as with an internet ticket.
