A terrific way to see Peterhof and Catherines's Palace. Our guide Lida was delightful, extremely well studied and her excellent English made our day a day to remember. I would highly recomend this tour.

as both Palaces are located south of city center it is very efficient to combine the tour to the palaces; well organised tour; very positive: we had a private tour (guide, driver and we two). With Margarita we had a very good guide (excellent English, avoiding crowds, always on time, presenting her personal highlights to the tourist, gives a lot of extra information regarding life in Russia).

my only dissapointment was we didnt get to Grand Palace and feel we are entitled to a rebate.There were 6 of us. I know security would not allow us to go there so thereforeyou didnt have to purchase tickets for us
However our guide was brilliant!!!!.

This was our second day which was very disappointing. We were driven around for 2 hours to pick up other passengers and then began our tour. We did not see both palaces on same day. We had a rush tour of the Hermitage, lunch at the same restaurant as the day before with minimal choices of selections and the afternoon at Catherine's palace. We had not been informed that we would not return to our ship until 7 PM and we had reservations that evening for dinner at 6:30 PM. Leida , our guide, was very informative and did her best. The van was a good size for 6 people but definitely not 9. Very hot and crowded. The other passengers we picked up at the hotels did not get the tour they were to have had as well. We believe the local company was trying to make money off all of us by combining the tours and switching the itinerary without us being aware of this. We have good success with Viator in the past but were not happy with this tour.
