CATHER­INE’S Sum­mer Palace, lo­cated in the town of Pushkin, out­side St Peters­burg in Rus­sia, is one of the coun­try’s busiest tourist at­trac­tions.

An exclusive pri­vate visit to the palace, af­ter it has closed to the pub­lic, is a rare and unique op­por­tu­nity ex­pe­ri­enced by guests of The Cap­tain’s Choice Tour on their an­nual East­ern Europe by pri­vate train’ jour­ney.

The palace tour is one of a num­ber of exclusive pri­vate ac­cess events dur­ing the 23-day all in­clu­sive jour­ney.

Guests will also en­joy vodka and caviar on the ter­races of St Basil’s Cathe­dral in the heart of Moscow’s Red Square af­ter the site has closed to the pub­lic.

They’ll get to at­tend a pri­vate Chopin Recital in a the­atre in War­saw and ex­pe­ri­ence din­ner in a restau­rant in­side Prague Cas­tle af­ter the Cas­tle has closed.

The Cap­tain’s Choice Tour also fea­tures se­lect op­tions’; in each city the fa­mous at­trac­tions are al­ways in­cluded but guests can choose ad­di­tional sight­see­ing and ac­tiv­i­ties to suite their per­sonal pref­er­ences.

While in Bu­dapest, guests may choose to visit the artist’s vil­lage of Szen­ten­dre, an hour away by Danube River ship, or en­joy a tour in­side the stun­ning Gothic Re­vival Par­lia­ment build­ing or they can choose to take to the wa­ters in a fa­mous Hun­gar­ian bath house.

The choices don’t end with sight­see­ing; on many evenings guest may choose from a se­lec­tion of restau­rants and dine a la carte at any time of their choos­ing. The jour­ney fea­tures day time travel on pri­vately char­tered air­con­di­tioned trains, with stays of two or three-nights in lux­ury ho­tels.

The tour in­cludes all meals, drinks with group din­ners and is es­corted by an ex­pe­ri­enced Tour Es­cort Team which in­cludes a doc­tor.
