A very private tour. Was very informative. Took the afternoon tour. Wasn't busy at all at the Peterhof. Probably could have done it without tour guide but would not have learned much. Could have saved money but se le vie.

A beautiful tour of Peterhof, Peter the Great's Summer Palace, about a 45 minute drive SW of Saint Petersburg, Russia. Peter wanted to copy many of the features of Versailles in France, and even hired many of the same designers, artists, and architects. A stunning place,

Julia picked me up at the hotel exactly at the agreed time. We drove in a comfortable van to Peterhof (about an hour?). Meanwhile she told a lot of interesting things (e.g. residences used by the nobles to rest during the journey to Peterhof) and then we did an exquisite visit

Unless you have no other choice, you must book the "Small-Group Early Access Tour" if visiting Peterhof Grand Palace and Gardens. The crowds are ridiculously crowded. I could not imagine how bad it would have been if not for the van ride to and early access. Our guide, Anna,

Thank you very much, Scott, for the informative review and pointing out the advantages of a guided tour. Peterhoff is an extremely popular museum, especially in summer, when the fountains are on. Unless you have all the logistics details organized, it can turn out to be a very messy experience. Having a guide like Anna, makes the experience really a unique one. Being a small-group tour there is also a chance to chance to chat and ask questions. Kind regards, Marina Wilson
