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

On the half day tour you get to go thru the palace and the lower gardens. While these are spectacular, on busy days you will be rushed thru the palace. If possible try to see the lower garden first and then the palace later in the day.
Our guide was very good the the transportation back and forth from the hotel was also very good. The only bad experience was having to wait in two entrance lines because they were giving our guide the run around on which entrance to use. This easily wasted a half an hour of our time there.
If you want to see more than those areas then look at a longer tour because there is lots to see.

Out of all the tours, the Midnight St Petersburg Cruise: Drawbridges and Canals and this one took the cake for me and my family. Petrodvorets is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING. The best manicured lawns, and prettiest fountains I have ever seen. And also... HAND-FED SQUIRRELS! Bring some nuts with you to feed these cute little animals. It's quite an experience. I can't recommend this tour enough.
Bring a camera, lots of photo opportunities. If you're staying in St. Petersburg CBD, then there is a bit of a drive involved and you can fit in some sleep.
The tour guide was also very good and incredibly knowledgeable. Afterwards, he even showed us where to buy souvenirs, and a nice place to get food for a reasonable price at restaurant DEL MAR. Highly recommended, well worth the price.
Also, bring some rubles with you to buy some GLINTVEIN at the start of the journey. It's an amazing drink, and really warms you up from the cold. 5/5- an excellent experience.
an unforgettable experience! Excellent car and driver. Our personal guide Ms Daria Yakovleva can be highly recommended. She is very knowledgable and very polite and goes out of her way to show us the most possible in the short time available. Thank you for all - VIATOR and Ms. Daria Yakovleva
Anastasia was our English speaking guide, very informed, eagerly answered questions and kept us to time and schedule. Her sense of humour fitted well with our party of 4 and whilst sharing all relevant information did not take the lecture pose but more of a relaxed conversation. Thank you for your warm welcome Anastasia!
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.
