Highlights
    What to Expect
    Start your tour with a hotel pickup from St Petersburg and travel to Peterhof, the palatial residence and estate of Tsar Peter the Great. 

    With your guide, you’ll explore the vast gardens and Grand Palace, both of which are often called the ‘Russian Versailles.’ Explore the elaborate fountains that pepper the stretching Lower Park, and hear how the 18th-century water creations run without the need for pumps. 

    Have your camera ready for a snap next to the golden statue of Sampson, grabbing a lion’s jaws, and check out other noteworthy water features including a black-and-white chess board fountain and another featuring Chinese dragons. 

    Then, head inside to admire the interiors of the Grand Palace with its richly gilded halls and sumptuous furnishings. As you wander amid the opulence, listen to your guide’s commentary to learn about the extravagance of Tsar Peter the Great, for whom the estate was built.Check out more fountains in the French-esque Upper Garden, and search for the trick fountains that surprise the unsuspecting. 

    When your tour ends, finish your day trip with a drop-off back at your St Petersburg hotel.
