Great tour and must see. Mita great guide!
This tour was amazing!
Everything went according to plan. Our guide Dasha, was highly knowledgeable and an altogether enjoyable person. Peterhof is a rare treasure and we are glad we made the trip.
Very good. We booked the tour to go there on a Monday then we learnt later that the palace is usually closed on Monday. We wrote an enquiry to the tour operator, who responded well and reassured that the tour would go on. Then we could really enter the palace on that day ! Along with a number of other guided tours
It was a great experience!
best trip everrrr!!!!
I don't think you can really say anything negative about Peterhof. It is such a beautiful place. And everyone else thinks that too. It is SO crowded. The only thing I didn't like about the tour was how we were pushed from room to room like cattle
The guide was knowledgeable. The palace was nice. The tour was a bit rushed, probably because there are a lot of tourists. I wished there was more time to roam around the garden and the fountain area. The garden would be nice during autumn/winter.
We had a very enjoyable day at the Peterhof. The car that collected us from our hotel was in good condition and the driver drove very safely both to and from the venue.
Our guide spoke very good English and was very knowledgeable about the both Peterhof and St Petersburg in general. The Peterhof itself was very impressive and even better than it looks in the photos. There is plenty to see and a half day makes for a bit of a rushed visit, perhaps more so in our case as the trip was cut short as the driver had to be back by a certain time. Apart from this slight disappointment we had a very good day. We booked this very last minute and this maybe why the driver had a deadline. A tour of the Peterhof should definitely be on your agenda during a visit to St Petersburg.
Peterhof is great but our tour guide was a disaster. We wasted nearly 2 hours shuttling through the city to different hotels to pick up other people. Twice she had the wrong address and walked aimlessly up and down the block! Then the driver had a run in with the police for being illegally parked - more on that later. Needless to say we got to Peterhof way later than expected so we missed the starting of the fountains. Moreover she then rushed us through the grounds and we only got a partial tour. Plus you could only hear what she was saying if you were literally right next to her and there were 10 of us on the tour. Unfortunately there was no time to eat or relax. Then she rushed us out to try to combine our return ride with another of the company's tours since our driver had to return to the city to deal with the police. Turns out there was not enough room for us to join the other minivan so we sat around in the heat for about an hour while she got two taxis to come take us back. Note we could not take the hydrofoil back because of the rough seas, which I am told happens regularly, so if you want the boat ride may be best to do it in the morning. We did enjoy seeing Peterhof but just wish it wasn't such a subpar tour experience.
