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?)

Peterhof Palace is magnificent especially at 11 am when the fountains are turned on. The tour of the palace is beautiful with many different types of rooms to see. The grounds are amazing too. .

Shame it was raining as the gardens looked great but unable to appreciate them fully. Tour of the palace could have been better organised as we had to queue several times, sometimes in the rain - as a result we left late and arrived back at the ship late, however the beauty of booking the tour with Princess meant the ship waited for us!

Absolutely beautiful and well worth seeing. Unfortunately it was very wet and we had a very young inexperienced guide who thought we could follow her black umbrella amongst hundreds of others. She walked far too fast and didn't allow sufficient time for photos. Difficult to hear her too. Read Less

This was our favorite palace. We were hustled through. That was fine. The gardens were fabulous. Be sure to be in the gardens at 11:00 am when the fountains come one. I wish we had had more time to wander. An hour was not enough.
