At a convenient prearranged time, depart from your St Petersburg hotel in a luxury, private minivan destined for Peterhof, home to the resplendent Peterhof Palace. Inform your guide of any particular attractions you wish to see and adapt your itinerary accordingly before arriving at the site.
Marvel at the magnificent façade of the palace as you draw closer in your private vehicle; admire the colorful frontage and beautiful gardens that surround the landmark that is often compared to the Palace of Versailles. Enjoy illuminating commentary from your private guide as you enter the grand entrance and embark on your comprehensive tour.
Amble through the Lower Park past 140 distinctively ornamented fountains and exotic flowers. Stop to photograph the Grand Cascade, considered the palace garden’s centerpiece, and then head inside to marvel at the opulent chambers decorated by extravagant Russian royalty.
Revitalize with lunch (own expense) at a convenient time during your tour and then return to your minivan after you have finished exploring the gorgeous grounds of Peterhof Palace. Bid your guide farewell after drop-off at your St Petersburg hotel.
