What to expect

Board a high-speed hydrofoil for an exciting ride down the Neva River, seeing St Petersburg from a unique perspective as you coast along the southern shore of the Gulf of Finland. The hydrofoil trip itself from St.Petersburg to Peterhof will take you only 45 minutes, which is three times faster than if you travel there by car.

You'll start the tour off strolling through the estate’s Lower Park, which lies between the Grand Palace and the shore and boasts more than 140 fountains to see. Stop at the impressive Grand Cascade with its golden statue of Samson holding open the jaws of a lion. Once you’ve seen all three cascades, you’ll understand why Peterhof is referred to as the “Russian Versailles.” From here, stroll through the Upper Garden, a typical French-style formal layout with five fountains, including one depicting Neptune – God of the Sea. Watch out for the whimsical creations designed to soak visitors, such as the umbrella fountain that sheds water whenever someone takes a seat underneath!

After your tour is over, take the hydrofoil ride back to St.Petersburg, admiring the beauty of the surroundings from the water. Then, when you've reached the pier in the city centre, you'll have the rest of the day free to explore it more for yourself.
