St. Petersburg Peterhof Palace Excursion Reviews

Peterhof Palace, Peter the Great’s imperial palace near St. Petersburg, features an enormous park adorned with fountains and statues.
Wonderful place to visit.
Wonderful place to visit. Celebrity offered a 4 + hour tour. It took about 3 hours just to get there are back. Go there but with a private local tour company, not Celebrity.

We voted as a group not to go to the garden and fountains because of heavy rain. We were able to admire them from a terrace before boarding the bus. No pictures allowed in the building. Postcards available in the gift shop. Entrance and exit areas become a madhouse as all groups are trying to fit in the same area. Amazing things to admire in the Palace. Read Less

Excellent trip we arrived by Hydrofoil which was a different experience but we had a guide for two days including all tickets to the various palaces transport and a head sets including super fast wifi on our mini bus. The guide was with us for two days and took us around all the places as planned we jumped all the queues . They are an excellent company to use and they sort your Visa out for you and you don't pay until the second day of your trip. Read Less

We just did the gardens and didn't actually go inside the palace as time didn't permit but what we did see was very impressive. Get there and get a position before they turn the fountains on (11am I think?)
