Mesmerizing
The stunning interiors of the Peterhof Palace alone,made the visit worthwhile. But there were also the fountain cascades, Peter the Great's response to Versailles, and famed for bringing water under pressure from higher elevation and use of increasingly small bore pipes, all without pumps!

You can also seen at a distance across the water from the grounds of Peterhof Palace, the Gazprom Tower which looms as an iconic new structure in Saint Petersburg.

Enjoy these photos. I has to full from kver one hundred I took from this visit!

Beautiful place, better not in rain
Jun 2018
We had a wonderful time with the private tour to this fantastic summer palace. It's some testiment to the destination to say that we had a nice time, even in driving rain. I recommend better weather. You're pushed through the palace a little bit like cattle to slaughter, but we enjoyed it. Our guide knew a lot and gave us plenty of interesting information. Oddly, our guide also explained at a lavish lunch paid for by two couples in our group (some of which had argued law before the US Supreme Court) how uneducated Americans are. But that had nothing to do with the Palace...

Perfect private touring of majestic palace
We had the pleasure of having a most personable and caring guid in Ana to take us on a discovery of Peter’s palace!
From when we were first greeted at our hotel until the end of the 6 hours, Ana was full of information and sharing on the history of St Petersburg and Peterhof Palace. The tour was amazing, the palace and gardens enchanting.
Ana also made sure we had an opportunity to explore some fascinating sights on return into Saint Petersburg, stopping for a ride on the Metro to see station architecture and art that rivalled Moscow Metro. We also visited a most picturesque position on the canals.
I fully recommend the tour of Peterhof Palace and that Ana is your perfect host!
