In the morning your car will take you to Peterhof which lies on the southern shore of the Gulf of Finland, 18 miles west of St. Petersburg. Your journey to Peterhof will take about 1 hour each way. During this time you will pass through the residential and suburban areas of St. Petersburg and see the apartment houses of the local citizenry. Upon arrival, you will leave your car at the parking lot and walk to Peterhof Fountain Park to view the numerous fountains and gilded statues of the main cascades. You will see the Grand Cascade with the largest fountain of Samson Rending the Jaws of a Lion. Besides the Grand Cascade, you will explore other beautiful parts of the Lower Park: see major Peterhof fountain cascades: Golden Hill or Chessboard, experience the 'trick fountains' that shoot at unpredictable intervals and soak passers-by. Anywhere you go here there is something to admire, the grand waterfront landscapes, shady green alleys, sparkling jets of fountains, perfection of park sculpture and architecture.
Remarks: You should be able to walk about 1.5 miles. Peterhoff Park is wheel-chair accessible and equipped with a ramp in the eastern part of the Lower Garden. Comfortable footwear is recommended for this tour as in some areas you will have to walk on cobble stones.
Inside visits: Peterhof Fountain Park.

Robnnata: Great tour of Peterhof and Catherine's Palace. Both are outstanding and have incredible opulence as well as rich history. Peterhof is worth the visit for the gravity powered fountains alone. Very impressive. You might consider taking the Hydrofoil boat back to the Hermitage instead of your tour car as well and you can get a unique perspective of St. Petersburg as you come in (also a short ride). 
Our guide was Svetlana. She was incredible with facts and interesting stories. She knew the grounds of both palaces very well.
The company was easy to work with, very professional, and accommodating. For example - we mixed up the time and were 30 minutes late but Svetlana & the manager patiently waited and did not make us feel in a hurry at all. Overall - worth it and customer friendly.
