My guide Tachiana (sorry, if I spelled wrong) and our driver MichaelI came to pick me up at my hotel and after less than one hour's drive in a comfortable car, we entered the Catherine's palace without any quequing and started our tour. If you really want to skip the line, go for this tour! When we were done with the tour, the waiting time to the palace was four hours! I was mesmerized by the beautiful palace and the garden where Catherine Ⅱ cherished and took a stroll, maybe with one of her lovers. We were lucky the weather was lovely, and I took many memorable pics.
Our lovely tour guide met us under the Alexander column and we took an airconditioned bus out to Peterhof. The gardens were beautiful, and we walked around the fountains and enjoyed the views. Our guide told us about the history of the palace and gardens. When it was time to go into the palace it was very busy and crowded. The museum employees herded us through, which was annoying. However the palace is beautiful and still well worth seeing.
From the welcome to the goodbye it was a wonderful day Our guide met us right on time at our hotel and took us to meet our excellent driver who made St Petersburg driving seem easy Daria's knowledge opened the secrets of the Palace and many other aspects of St Petersburg even introducing us to Eliseyev. The day went so smoothly and quickly and we had a lot of fun on the way.
Anna, our guide, was early, took us on a tour through St Petersburg on the way to Peterhof. She was very knowledgeable about the history, the architecture and anything thing else we could ask. She was prepared with tickets and guided pass most of the crowds. Anna spoke excellent English and I would highly recommend this tour with Anna.
There was a problem with timing and the entrance to the Palace was not allowed at first. But I must emphasize the creative efficiency of our guide Darya in solving everything the best way for out group. Cordial, attentive and helpful at all times, she gave us precious information about Peterhof Palace.
