Early Admission to the Palace and Park of Peterhoff Tour, visit with your local private guide


Welcome to the kingdom of luxury, water and a human being genius! Take advantage of early admission (before the general public open hours)! Though this is not a guarantee of your staying alone in the Palace it is a real way out to avoid crowds of visitors and get kind of skip-the-line entrance. At first we would be visiting the Grand Palace with its magnificent interiors listening to the stories of Russian royalties, intrigues of the court life, historical and political points of Russian history etc. After that we would be proceeding to the Lower Park with about 300 fountains! A little bit romantic feeling: every fountain has its own music depending on a pipe diameter, shape of a jet, the founder's authentic idea. Become the witness of everything that had been made for centuries on the place of an impassable swamps surrounded with dense woods. Get fun under the trick fountains and enjoy the beauty of flowers. Feed squirrel if you are lucky and much more!

A Recent Review of this tour

We very much enjoyed this tour with Valeria. She's very friendly and gave us lots of information about the Peterhof Grand Palace. With the early entrance we were able to see the Palace in comfort without the crowds. And had time to to get a great vantage point to view the fountains as they were switched on. Highly recommend this tour.
