What to expect
Start your tour with a hotel pickup from St Petersburg and travel to Peterhof, the palatial residence and estate of Tsar Peter the Great.  With your guide, you’ll explore the vast gardens and Grand Palace, both of which are often called the ‘Russian Versailles.’ Explore the elaborate fountains that pepper the stretching Lower Park, and hear how the 18th-century water creations run without the need for pumps.  Have your camera ready for a snap next to the golden statue of Sampson, grabbing a lion’s jaws, and check out other noteworthy water features including a black-and-white chess board fountain and another featuring Chinese dragons.  Then, head inside to admire the interiors of the Grand Palace with its richly gilded halls and sumptuous furnishings. As you wander amid the opulence, listen to your guide’s commentary to learn about the extravagance of Tsar Peter the Great, for whom the estate was built.Check out more fountains in the French-esque Upper Garden, and search for the trick fountains that surprise the unsuspecting.  When your tour ends, finish your day trip with a drop-off back at your St Petersburg hotel.

Great tour
Aug 2019
We took the Peterhof tour in August 2019 with Lida as our guide. Lida was great and very knowledgeable; giving us insider tips, additional knowledge and some fun facts along the way. A very enjoyable day, professional company and great experience.

Fantastic tour of a beautiful place. Peterhof is unforgettable.
Apr 2019 • Solo
I had a wonderful tour experience with guide Anna of MariaRose Tours, along with our driver Vassiliy. I was the only person on the tour, and I really got the royal treatment. Anna treated me like a dear friend. She was very knowledgeable about everything we saw at Peterhof, as well as facts about St. Petersburg on the way there and back. We even got out of the car on the way back to take a two-stop Metro ride, to see how beautiful the stations are. MariaRose also helped me out when a problem came up: when I booked the tour on Expedia almost a year ago, I was booked for a date when Peterhof was closed. One phone call from the desk clerk at my hotel and I was switched to a different date. If you're going to St. Petersburg, don't miss Peterhof.
MariaRose Tours is a great way to see it. Very highly recommended all around.

ultra long queues in the cold under the rain with no protection what so ever
Aug 2018 • Family
This tour provides the transportation and the guide only, but it did not give us the major advantage which we were looking for i.e to be able to have the tickets in advance and avoid the ultra long queue which kept us standing for 2 hours in the cold weather under pouring rain with no protection but our miserable umbrellas.
The guide got the ticket once we got there and we all stood in line for 2 hours until it was our turn to go in the palace.
The palace itself is beautiful and the gardens are breath taking especially the lower gardens which over look the sea from where one can see the gulf of Finland.
This tour could have been more fulfilling and our time better consumed , have we not spent most of our time there standing in an amazingly long queue instead.

Terrible Service and organization!
Jul 2018 • Friends
Our tour guide arrived for us and was a French guide instead of English! We stopped at their tour agency to swithc guides due to their mistake, but there were no more guides so we missed all the city tour explanation because our guide did not even try to explain. I called the person responsable on severl ocasions from my home phone (paying roaming charges) since the tour personnel did not even bother. In the end, they added us to an existing tour from a different agency and it was a mess because our french guide would have to open the gates (with our tickets) and then we would wait for the other tour for the explanation. Furthermore, the return was not on boat as promised, and they packed a Sprinter van with over 25 people and no air conditioning! Worse yet, every time I called the person responsible he did not seem to care at all...

Beautiful Palace and grounds
I decided to book the half day tour of Peterhof very last minute as my partner is not the biggest fan of traipsing around museums and palaces and he opted to spend a day shopping and watching football! I wanted to book the tour so that I didn’t have to worry about finding the palace and I wanted to understand more of the history.

I was picked up by a guide (Lida) who was friendly and knowledgeable throughout the whole morning. We picked up four more people and then Lida told us a bit about the history of the areas we were driving through, which I found fascinating - I can picture how the road to the palace would have looked hundreds of years ago! The palace itself is amazing and the grounds were beautiful, even before the buds and leaves were on the trees. The fountains really are very impressive!

Overall a really nice morning and I’m so glad I booked. If I had the time and money, I would definitely book another tour, perhaps of Catherine’s Palace. Russian history is fascinating!
