We are so fortunate to have the best guide to see St. Petersburg- Peterhof and the Gardens by Hydrofoil,, Anna, our guide is so kind, knowledgeable and very pretty, explained to us everything about Peterhof and the garden,, she patiently answers all our questions and even enlightens us on the culture and traditions in Russia.. Thank you GetYourGuide for this wonderful experience.


Our personal tour to the Peterhof gardens was excellent since there were only 3 in our group. Our guide knew so much about the history of all the fountains and the Peterhof in general that she made it a fascinating couple hours. She took care of all the details, in my opinion, this was the best way to tour the Peterhof gardens.

The tour was carried out convincingly by Nicolai. The organization also went very well.
