What You Can Expect
Our tour was well conducted by our guide Helen. Given that we were the only people on the tour we received exceptional and personalised information and service. The only negative was that it was a bit rushed as we did not get enough time to explore the beautiful gardens as we needed to be at the pier for our return trrip to St Petersburg.
Petershof is fascinating and beautiful. It was great to go with a small group and get to skip the lines. The ride back to St. Petersburg on the hydrofoil was a treat. The tour guide was knowledgeable on the history of both St. Petersburg- which he commented on as we drove through on the way to Petershof. I'm glad we booked a tour rather than try to do this on our own.
It was fantastic and very well organized! Beautiful Place and Must seen!
We had a wonderful tour with guide Veronika. She was knowledgeable, personable, and managed the time available very well. She is great. The palace tour rooms--the areas available to the public--are beautiful and fascinating. We were able to get through before most of the large groups of tourists arrived. It was a valuable opportunity to learn about Russian historical figures at the same time. The grounds are beautiful, even on a gray day. We found it easy to imagine traveling back in time there. We certainly recommend the tour.
Our tour guide, Margarita Maslova was excellent. She was able to answer any questions that we had. Her knowledge of English made it very easy to understand what she was saying. We enjoyed her company very much and through her thorough knowledge we learned a lot about Russian history and Russian way of life. We could not have asked for a better guide.
This trip was an special experience.I had the privilege to be the only one with your excellent guide.
A powerful intellectual personality she took me all over the imperial Russia history.
Thank you, Leta.
Fun and amazing and informative = great tour! Guide was interesting and added insights to tsarist personalities and historical context. Convenient hotel pick up and early (uncrowned) admission. Hydrofoil is a fun and scenic way to travel.
Well done, but a bit hectic. Drop off point was not clear in info. Catherine was knowledgeable and friendly. Overall quite good.
Our guide was very knowledgable , but note that the tour does not bring you back to your hotel.
Must see, but having a knowledgable guide is e key .
