Full description
Meet your guide and driver in the lobby of your hotel between 9:45 AM and 10:15 AM. Since there will be other people, be ready for pick up at 9:45 AM.  Depending on your hotel location, you will be picked up first, second or third in line.

Your guide will carry a sign with the lead passenger's name on it. Transfer by mini-van to the Imperial Residence of Peterhof located on the shore of the Gulf of Finland.

Guided tour of Grand Palace of Peterhof with special early admission to avoid crowds. The Grand Palace at Peterhof was designed to be the centerpiece of Peter the Great's "Russian Versailles".    The beauty of Peterhof could even be compared to the Palace of Versailles. Inside, the Grand Palace is considerably more lavish, and the fact that the interiors had to be almost entirely reconstructed after World War Two does nothing to distract from their grandeur.

After the palace tour, you'll proceed to explore amazing Lower Gardens with numerous fountains, and if you're lucky, you'll witness the ceremony of turning the fountains on.

If you are hungry, you are welcome to enjoy a quick lunch at one of the park cafes or just keep exploring with your guide.
1:00 PM -  journey back to St. Petersburg.
2:00 PM (approx) - return back to your hotel.
