ITINERARY:

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.

You will see the Grand Cascade with the largest fountain of Samson Rending the Jaws of a Lion. You will next tour Grand Peterhof Palace. Built on a hill overlooking the Gulf of Finland, Grand Peterhof Palace was the first summer residence of the Russian Czars to be built in the St. Petersburg area. Peter the Great oversaw the construction himself and spent most of his spare time in this palace. Entering this palace you will make your way up the Gold Staircase which is decorated with gold leaf and intricate wood-carvings. During this visit, you will view the meticulously restored lavish interiors of the early 18th century filled with original furniture, beautiful chandeliers, and authentic paintings.

LynP43.:  We recently used "Guide Guru" for a private tour of St. Petersburg. We could not have been happier with the entire experience. It started with Natalia, the administrator, who was quick, efficient, flexible and a pleasure to deal with in making the arrangements. Inna, our guide, spoke perfect English and was extremely knowledgeable. She is a warm, charming person and added immensely to the enjoyment of our time in St. Petersburg. Vladimir, our driver, was a definite asset as well. He was cheerful, helpful, polite and professional. Together, they made us feel like real superstars. In short, NOTHING COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER! 
LuizFortes: Guide-Guru was fantastic. Great guide and driver. Vera, our guide, showed enormous knowledge of Russian and city history answering every single question we had, besides her great sympathy. Beautiful city and awesome tour.  Read more reviews
