Peterhof tour

from $55.00

A private Peterhof tour is the best half day trip you can take in summer. Peterhof used to be a summer residense of tzars. The place is famous for the Grand palace and an absolutely beautiful fountain park. It’s a rare occasion when the gardens are more famous than the palace itself. The main attraction are dozens of unique fountains created in the 18th and the 19th centuries. On a tour of Peterhof you will see all of them!

Try to feel the sense of humor of Peter the Great and avoid splashes of the “trick” fountains. Walk among cozy pavilions and small palaces. Feel a breeze from the Gulf of Finland on a hot summer day and find a quiet spot in the gardens to admire the beauty of fountains.  You’ll fall in love with Peterhof!

Advantages of  our  Peterhof tour:

  • We see all the fountains of the Lower park, not only the nearest (and the most crowded) ones,
  • You can choose between public transport (that is really cheap) , a private car or a hydrofoil to move around during the tour.
  • If we go to Peterhof by public transport or a private car, we will see some of the most beautiful metro stations on the way there & will see the Upper garden in Peterhof,
  • A visit to the Grand palace can be included upon agreement (it’s usually too busy to be enjoyable in summer),
  • We include a stop to see the functioning Peter and Paul cathedral in Peterhof (if we arrive by public transport or by car). It’s a very beautiful functioning church built in imitation of ancient  Ryssian style.

Peterhof has a huge garden, so comfortable walking shoes will be necessary. Also check the weather forecast in advance – it’s better to take an umbrella in case of a chance of rain as we will be outdoors most of the time.
