We will be arriving in April for 4 nights, and are looking to visit Peterhof & St Catherines Palace. As there are only 2 of us we are looking at trying to get to the above places with the aid of a guide. How much per hour would the average guide cost? Is it worth booking in advance or waiting until we get to hotel inorder that we may be able to share with other people?
I have read that you may pick up English language tours from Gostiny Dvor. Has anyone used these & do they include an English language tour around the properties without having to queue up for tickets, or do they just drop you off & pick you up? How much do these trips cost?
Or are there any other organised trips we can go on to reach these with tickets included? As we don't want to wait in long queues if it can be avoided & would want an English language tour of the palaces.
