Such beauty and opulence. The czars had it all. I only wish that the tour included more about the how the ordinary people -- the servants -- lived.

The palace was interesting but our tour group was strung out to the point that it was somethings hard to hear our tour guide. This was caused to the many of the rooms in the palace are fairly small and the palace personal kept the tour moving fairly fast. However the real bonus of the palace is the palace gardens. They are spectacular. Read Less

Optional tour worth every penny. The grounds outside are as spectacular as the art on the inside.

Excellent, excellent one-of-a kind experience. A little longer bus ride (45 minutes) because it is well outside of the City but you have a lot of free time to wander the gardens after the tour.

The guide was fantastic and the combination of Peterhof and Church on Spilled Blood made for a nice long tour. My only issue were that one of the passengers had to use the bathroom constantly and this interfered with touring- we had to wait around for them twice besides the usual planned bathroom stops. This was not fair to the rest of us. also, inside the Palace you have to wear booties- and they wax the floors- so it was a horrible slippery mess. I don't know how I stayed upright. One little girl fell and couldn't get up. teenagers were skating around on the floors- very dangerous! but, the fountains at Peterhof Palace were amazing, so beautiful and worth the trip! the planned lunch at Peterhof was very nice.

Fantastic guide, Anna, led us to this beautiful palace and grounds. We enjoyed walking around it. Far cheaper to go with TJ Travel than the ships tour.

the interior tour of Peterhof is quite regimented. the docents keep the crowds moving, leaving little time to appreciate the rooms. the display when the fountains are turned on is very interesting, but also extremely crowded!
