Highly recommended

I would highly recommend this tour. Our guide Alexandra had an extremly good knowledge of the sight and gave us a lot of background information on the history of the building, the Romanows and the city as well. She also guided us through the park and showed us the best places for taking pictures. Finally she even helped us findung the fastest way into the eremitage. All in all we really enjoyed the tour and had a great day in Peterhof! 5+ stars
