Full description
Your private guide and a personal driver will meet you in the lobby of your hotel. After a one-hour journey, you will reach Peterhof, the grandiose summer residence of the Russian Imperial family.

Established by Peter the Great, who transferred the capital of Russia from Moscow to St. Petersburg, Peterhof is comprised of a magnificent ensemble including several luxurious palaces, lush parks, extravagant fountains, and jaw-dropping cascades.

It is often referred to as a Russian Versailles, less famous but even more spectacular. Your tour will start with a fascinating journey around the magical Grand Palace. Admire interiors decorated in baroque, classical, and oriental styles, filled with objects of art, splendid furniture, and stunning sculptures.

The highlight of your tour to Peterhof will be its fascinating Lower Park, boasting more than 100 fountains and four magnificent waterfalls. The main and the most impressive of which is situated in front of the Imperial Palace, which was the summer residence of the Russian tsars for 200 years, from 1714 until the October Revolution in 1917 when the whole estate was nationalized by a special decree issued by Vladimir Lenin.

Take advantage of amazing photo opportunities in a truly picturesque place while walking along with the gardens of Peterhof towards the Gulf of Finland. To complete the tour, your guide will accompany you back to the hotel or a preferred location in St. Petersburg.
