Over the years we have dealt with a number of private tour agencies and I am sure that Horosho is one of the we have ever used. Our family of four enjoyed a delightful day trip of Peterhof with Olga. She is thoroughly knowledgeable, personable and has a good sense of humor. She was sensitive to our time issues (off to the railway station immediately after our tour) and managed to teach us an amazing amount about the building (Grand Palace) in Peterhof during 5 hours. This is a delightful tour which gave us a great overview of the history of the area. Of course it wasn't easy to organize this tour due to COVID restrictions but anyway we travelled from Moscow (where we worked) to St Petersburg to see famous sights before finally coming back home to the USA. My wife, our two sons and I felt it we learned and experienced a lot! Not to mention that Olga was delightful to spend the day with, answering all of our questions, so I highly recommend the tour. Stay safe, guys! Thank you for making this tour possible!

Sofia and the driver met us in the lobby of our hotel and we drove to Pushkin to see the Palace. Sofia provided commentary on the way to the Palace and escorted us around the palace and grounds. Great experience!

My daughter and I greatly enjoyed the tour of the Catherine and Peterhof palaces led by Irina who did a great job of providing details in fluent Engish. Alex, the driver, did an excellent job as well. The weather was unusually warm for St. Petersburg in early March and there were no crowds maybe because of the virus outbreak. Definitely bring an umbrella as it rained most of the day. A down side to coming in the winter/early spring is that the Peterhof fountains are not operating.
