The night before I received an email telling me what time was put up but not only that they called the hotel that night and spoke to me so that I made sure I had receive the email. Olga was our guide she picked us up at the Lo. Sharply at 830am with the driver as they drove to Peterhof she spoke about the palace and history of it as well as the history of Saint Petersburg. at the tour she went through each room speaking in good English and then she made sure we were outside with plenty of time to see the fountain show. Then leading us through the gardens, allowing my son to get ice cream or for us to shop at the sovenier shop. The. At the end driving us and leaving us right at the hotel door. We loved that it was only our family doing the tour so we could ask questions and wouldn’t get lost. Thank you Olga!!

I just returned from St. Petersburg where I had a lovely dinner with Katarina and Alexandra. The food was delicious, the atmosphere in their small apartment charming and the two women were delightful hosts, providing a warm friendly reception with great conversation.
Highly recommend this experience!

I was the only person booked on the tour, so turned out to be a private tour! The guide and driver were really nice, and because it was just me, a lot more time was spent checking out the different areas around the palace and gardens. I even got a mini tour of the historic metro on the way back to St Petersburg. I would absolutely recommend this tour!
