    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

    We had a very enjoyable day at the Peterhof. The car that collected us from our hotel was in good condition and the driver drove very safely both to and from the venue. Our guide spoke very good English and was very knowledgeable about the both Peterhof and St Petersburg in general. The Peterhof itself was very impressive and even better than it looks in the photos. There is plenty to see and a half day makes for a bit of a rushed visit, perhaps more so in our case as the trip was cut short as the driver had to be back by a certain time. Apart from this slight disappointment we had a very good day. We booked this very last minute and this maybe why the driver had a deadline. A tour of the Peterhof should definitely be on your agenda during a visit to St Petersburg.

    It was a beautiful day and we really enjoyed it! The tour was very well organized and our guide gave us very helpful and interesting historical information. It has nothing to do with the tour company, but I really wished we had more time. We had one hour in the palace and one hour in the garden. I wish we had time to visit other buildings - chapel and smaller mansion. Our tour did not include the visits to those. Since it took two hours, both ways for our round trip from the city center, I think it would have been more fun to stay there longer, to spend more time in the garden, especially, and visit the chapel. If I could do it next time, I would find a tour that gives more time, or even do it on our own. Nonetheless it was a good tour. I learned a lot about St. Petersburg that I would not have known if I did it alone.

    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.
