A wonderful day tour of the Palaces and learning about what happened during WW II. We had the same tour guide Tatjana for 2 days and that made things a lot more comfortable, she is very knowledgeable about her history of these Palaces as well. A must do tour!

We booked a full day trip to Catherine Palace and Peterhof for out break in St Petersburg. Our experience did not fail to impress! Unfortunately we got our dates confused. We believed we had booked Thursday and were at our hotel planning our Wednesday with the concierge. After a leisurely breakfast the Viator official arrived looking for our group of three!!! Massive mistake on our part but the Viator staff came looking for us even though I realised later that I had at least 3 missed calls from them . They made a huge effort to ensure we did not miss our fabulous day. So very much appreciated keeping in mind we had prepaid and WE were the ones at fault
Our guide Sophia was fantastic! With her fab knowledge and easy, friendly nature she took us through the unmissable Catherine Palace sharing the history and splendor of this royal residence. Then we were whisked off to Peterhof where we were escorted expertly through the beautiful palace and breathtaking fountains. The manicured gardens were awesome. Sophia certainly knew her stuff. On our way back to St P she even coaxed our driver to stop at a little known souvenir shop where the little mementos sold at a fraction of the price than in the centre of this wonderful city. I cannot recommend this trip and company enough and thanks so much Sophia! :-

Excellent tour with Horosho. Our guide Glen, was a great , kind, friendly and very knowledgeable human being. He showed us the residences, expertly guiding us through these beautiful buildings and gardens. Srevice was excellent, showing respect and caring for the customer. The same goes for the driver, a true gentleman in all aspects. From the moment he picked us from our hotel to our return this tour was a magnificent experience. We even got a beautiful Thank you souvenir from Horosho. We highly recommend this tour provider and the guide and driver. Excellent service...! Good value for money...!

Fantastic! Before getting to the highlights of the tour, a word about logistics. Our tour guide, Catherine, was early and spoke excellent English. Our driver was friendly and polite and drove us everywhere in a spotless, modern car. When you see the lines at Catherine's Palace and Peterhof, you will be so glad you are on the tour and can walk right in. Catherine made sure we were well-positioned to view all the splendors of these magnificent palaces and ensured we spent plenty of time at the fountains and gardens at Peterhof. It was a real treat to see both palaces in one day without ever feleling rushed. Highly recommended!

Our tour guide Lina arrived on time and provided us with a very informative commentary on route. During the tour of both palace's, she gave us very good insight into the lifestyle at the time of the Romanov era. Our driver Alexi was a great driver and was always considerate. Highly recommended.

My Mum and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. We were picked up at our hotel by our tour guide and greeted by Misha, the owner of the tour company, who gave us a small welcome gift. Our guide and driver were great and Peterhof and Catherine's Palace are incredible. Strongly recommend!

kann ich nur empfehlen, wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt, eine Menge gesehen und gehört das wir so nie erfahren hätten.
Da wir eine Ferienwohnung hatten wurde ein individueller Treffpunkt direkt an der Ecke vereinbart und wurden superpünktlich abgeholt.
Die Führungen waren echt interessant und dadurch das wir an den Warteschlangen entlang geführt wurden auch wirklich Stressfrei.
alles in allem ein echt gelungener Tag.
