Small-Group Tour of Peterhof: Grand Palace and Park

Anna picked me up from my hotel, I was the only one in attendance so it was a private tour. She drove me to Peterhof in her car, pointing out Stalinist architecture along the way and chatting to me about imperial and Soviet history. We toured both the palace interior and gardens, except it was winter, so we spent less time in the gardens. The ability to "skip the queue" was very helpful as we bypassed several large tour groups and it was cold outside. Anna was very knowledgeable and engaging when it came to touring the palace staterooms. I asked her for recommendations for Georgian cuisine, and she dropped me off at a restaurant close to the city centre on the way back. The tour was 4-5 hours in total, including travel time, and I think it would have taken me much longer had I decided to visit Peterhof by myself (and would have been less informative - audioguides are great, but a poor replacement for a real, live guide). Would recommend. Pro-tip: message the guide to confirm meeting
Great experience with this tour. Very impressive organization of the tour. In the morning just before start of the tour, Misha, co-founder of the tour organizing company to greet me. Kate, my guide, shared with me her vast knowledge about the city, the premises, history, insights, and many stories around the premises. She was friendly and a pleasant person to talk with. Valodjya, the driver, was also friendly, and he drove us thru very safely. Such a nice experience with the tour. I strongly recommend.
