Spectacular

Picked up the bus in St Petersburg. Small tour with our excellent guide Tatiana who spoke very good English and gave an amazing amount of information. Peterhof was spectacular especially the lower gardens with all the different fountains. The palace is well worth a visit to see all the gold decoration.
