Fountains, palaces, charming pavilions, and much more await your arrival on this private guided St. Petersburg tour of the famous Peterhof Park.
Start your day when you meet your guide, who will escort you to your private, air conditioned car. Approaching Peterhof Park, you will be awe struck by the beautiful garden landscapes that offer a Versailles feel and look. Peterhof is known for its variety of fountains, including the Samson Cascade and the Joke Fountains. The park is dotted with countless styles, shapes, and structures, an amazing sight you do not want to miss!
See the Mon Plaisir, which is a small royal palace that's big in style. Even though this park was almost completely destroyed in World War II by Nazis, the restoration has brought it back to life in a most magnificent way. This day is a delightful and comfortable option to enjoy one of the most popular landmarks of St. Petersburg.
This St. Petersburg tour includes entry fees and an English speaking guide, and uses an air-conditioned, wheelchair-adapted vehicle for those who cannot get up from the wheelchair. Bottled water and snacks are available for purchase.

Please be aware that cruise lines occasionally mislead passengers by telling them that they are not allowed to disembark the ship in St. Petersburg unless they are on an excursion purchased through the cruise line. In addition, the cruise lines also sometimes tell passengers that they cannot disembark the ship until the passengers on the cruise lines' excursions have done so first. This is incorrect, and you are free to exit the ship as soon as passengers start to disembark because Russian law states that a cruise ship cannot hold passengers onboard against their will as long as they have the proper documents. In order to clear immigration, you will need to bring along: 1) Your passport; 2) A photocopy of the picture page of your passport; and 3) A copy of your tour tickets. We will provide you with your tour tickets as part of the documents we e-mail to you after you make a tour booking.
