Beautiful palace
, Oct 2019
Our guide Elle was very kind and competent during all the tour . She picked us up at the hotel and was very helpful all the time ,
Forgot or don't know or don't care what we booked

I booked a tour to the palace for a family of four (all adults and your choice of options below are too limited) to visit the palace at 9 am by Hydrofoil. It is more expensive than the one by SUV/bus. Then I got a message from the agent asking if it is OK I considered 10 am tour instead. I said OK to join without being informed that we would travel both ways by SUV/Car. after getting there by car, we asked the tour guide what happened to the Hydrofoil ride. she said she did not know. and she offered to call the office to arrange for Hydrofoil back but we have to carry our back packs all over the palace instead of leaving in the SUV. We declined and take the SUV all the way back. Is this how Viator look after your customer?. I have frequently joined Viator for my day tours in various countries in the past but and this time is really disappointing. we ended up paying more like US$70-80. The palace is great but this arrangement spoiled the tour. very insensitive.
Great trip

Ali was a great tour guide. We really enjoyed our time at Peterhof. The tour was a good mix of entertainment and education. We had plenty of time to see both the palace and the gardens.
Stunning beyond belief!

Igor was our English speaking guide and he made our trip carefree and most enjoyable, arranging transport and negotiating queues etc. He has an had extensive knowledge of the Peterhof Palace and its rich history. We marvelled at the authentic layout of the many rooms, all of which take one’s breath away. The exterior was equally impressive with several acres of beautiful gardens, fountains and pathways. After seeing all there was to see, we caught the hydrofoil back to the wharf near the Hermitage. A wonderful experience!
Very disappointed

We booked a private tour for Peterhof Palace and gardens for 4 people. We ended up in a bus going around to pick up more people from other hotels and going to Peterhof on a bus instead of a hydrofoil we had in our reservation. The agency said its a mistake and they will refund half of the money. Not very happy with the service provided and please be careful when booking with them as they are not reliable .
Peterhof Review

We spent about four hours at Peterhof. Our Guide Ms. Ulga was terrific. Very Knowledgeable and friendly. We thought Peterhof is wonderful (the furnishings inside and the gardens). A must see on any visit to St. Petersburg.
Je la recommande

Très belle visite, le guide est venu nous chercher à l’hôtel pile à l'heure. Très bon guide et agréable, retour en bateau sur la Neva ce qui donne un autre aspect de la ville.
