Absolutely wonderful guide, I won't embarrass myself by trying to spell her name collected us from the hotel on time with our driver. She made the car journey very interesting pointing out many interesting locations en route. Her knowledge of the Peterhof was superb, as was her enthusiasm during the entire 4 hours or so we were with her. A genuinely lovely time with a delightful guide. Please pass our thanks to her. Thank you
We thoroughly enjoyed this magnificent and beautifully restored palace. Illi our guide was knowledgeable, funny and made the experience a brilliant tour for us. Illi suggested a delicious restaurant we've since visited twice. Thank you for a great Russian experience.

Peterhof is must in Petersburg! But reserve for the whole trip more time because within the given time is only fast track! Visiting the Grand Palace is a bit marching tour be prepared for it. You will go through really beautiful rooms but in quite speedy mode because is it small and so many people want to see it. The gardens are really nice and great! You can spend there hours next time I will do so!
Very nice tour guide! Good English, explaining all the history.
A great day with a great tourguide, Elijah Ilya. He had a very keen sense of humor and was quite knowledgeable about Russian history, politics and culture. Answered every question. I might have wanted a bit more time to just wander the gardens, but I assume we had to make the 1:15 hydrofoil boat back to St. Petersburg. As with all the tour guides I have had with Viator, Elijah was so informative and truly provided us with a great experience learning about Russia.
Great tour. Totally worth it.
Our guide met us at our hotel and we had a driver to take us the hour ride to the Grand Palace. The driver was friendly and excellent and so was our guide for the day. It was a crazy day with lots of people getting into the place but our guide walked us through with no problems.
Excellant Guide, Perfect Arrangements,We are now Viator fans.
Fantastic tour of Peterhof Grand Palace! A word about the taxi driver, he was really cute :
Our tour guide Ilya was great helpful, spoke good English, and was very attentive and knowledgeable! The boat ride back via hovercraft was interesting as well and certainly worth every cent! Thank you again!
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.
