A great, iconic tour well-led by Irina. She was very knowledgeable and responsive to my interests for this private tour. A definite 5-star rating for the guide and tour. I look forward to touring with Irina again and highly recommend her.

Irina has an incredible local knowledge which makes a day at the palace & fountains the most interesting of days. She manages to bring to life the interior of the palace before a most relaxing time wandering in the grounds discovering many things that we would never have found on our own. Irina manages to time her tour to beat the crowds which gives more time to enjoy this wonderful place. We travelled with elderly parents and Irina went out of her way to ensure that they were not rushed or tired.

A fantastic tour. Irina was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. The pace of the tour was perfect, there was enough time to stop and enjoy the gardens and the palace. To take photographs where and when we wanted. We never felt rushed or that we should move on to see more. I suppose the best thing I could say is that if I'm ever fortunate enough to go back to St Petersburg I would certainly book another tour and would hope that it was one that Irina is a guide on. A really great day out.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Danny! It was my pleasure to guide you.

Irina was extremely well informed and guided us through Peterhof at just the right pace for a family of 5. We all thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the awe inspiring palaces, for the appreciation of the restoration , the history of the families through to the fun of the trick fountains. We were all impressed with the organisation, collecting us from the port and making sure we found our hotel in the city centre at the end of the tour. It was a really enjoyable day.

Totally enjoyable, vey insightful, and absolutely worth every Ruble to have met Irina on our tour of Peterhof and St. Petersburg. This day with Irina and the driver was a highlight of our 10-day trip to Russia. Our family of four simply experienced so much more at a significantly greater depth than had we tried to tour Peterhof on our own. Thanks again Irina! We totally recommend you a for anyone seeking a high-quality tour experience in your home city. Regards, Doug, Vicki, Graham & Paula Welling
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Doug for your great review! I'm very glad you enjoyed the day and it was a pleasure to meet your wonderful family!
My experience of ToursByLocals was great. Irina was a marvellous guide, extremely knowledgable and so interesting to listen to. She helped me greatly at the end of our trip, the driver was great driving us through rush hour traffic in St. Pete's, Igor was his name. I would highly recommend your service as it was hassle free, relaxed and informative. So glad I found you on the net. I would give Irina and Igor 5 stars for everything. Thanks Brenda
