We visited on a day that Peterhof was closed. Since we had tickets, we were permitted entry. WOW!!! No tourists and the palace almost to ourselves. I could not have requested a better guide. The day was perfect. Highly Recommend!!
The Guide was very helpful and showed us lots of intersting sites.
She also helped by knowing where to access the venue and ensure that we did not have to queue for a long time, we also managed to view special events when they happened rather than miss them.
Overall we were very pleaed with the tour of Peterhof and would use Viator again.

One of the most impressive places to visit in the world.
Don't miss it.
Friendly and informative guide- would highly recommend this tour!
This trip was all I had hoped for. I missed the Peterhoff in 2010 when I was here. Our tour guide, Lyda, was incredible, sharing her knowledge and patiently answering questions.This was the highlight of my stay.
Excellent Tour!! Lidia our tour guide was very kind and knowledgeable, so we learnt a lot during this trip!! additionally, it was amazing being able to see the fountains!! it is really something worth to see!!
LIda, our guide again, took us to Peterhof which is a fascinating and beautiful compound. She highlighted the key elements of the estate, providing sufficient time to walk around the gardens. Lida has a good command of English.
FYI -- When available, go by hydrofoil instead of car because it is a shorter ride and allows additional time at Peterhof: the highlight of St. Petersburg.
Excellent tour. Guide very informative, efficient and personable.
Always could be better, but it was good. I liked this trip and our gid Katya.
Vladimir the guide was really informative - length of time of tour is not long enough to fully absorb the sights
Happy with the tour. We had time to go through the palace and to tour the gardens though it might have been nice to have a lttle longer to spend wandering in the grounds. The small tour group was good.
We had a tour guide for just the two of us, Marina from Marie Rose tours spoke very good English and was very knowledgable about the history of the Peterhof. We really enjoyed it
My family of 4 (2 adults, 2 small children) truly enjoyed the 5-hour tour of Peterhof Palace. Thank you very much to Lida, our tour guide! Even the kids enjoyed her stories of the history while inside the Peterhof Palace museum. We all liked the Peterhof Palace gardens and fountains.
We very much enjoyed the half day tour to Peterhof. Lidya was an excellent guide. She was knowledgeable about her subject and sensitive to our needs. The palace was very quiet, due to the time of year and the fact that the fountains were not yet working. This meant that we could take our time in looking at the palace and could see the rooms at their best, without being full of visitors. The trip to Peterhof was interesting and Lidya pointed out various places of interest. We were transported to Peterhof in a clean,comfortable car, driven by an excellent, courteous driver. It was an excellent half-day tour.
Our guide was very personable, fluent in English and extremely helpful and informative.
wonderful, the tour guide was terrific,came right to our hotel for pick up and drop off
This was an excellent trip. The guide was very pleasant and very knowledgeable.
This was a very good tour which provided exactly what it said it would. The guide was excellent. She explained everything well in an interesting way without overloading us with information. We would have preferred to have extra time to wander the gardens by ourselves but did not have the confidence to let the car go and use public transport later.
A very friendly guide with good English and excellent knowledge, an altogether most satisfying tour.
