Peterhof Arrival

Two different guidebooks indicated that the hydrofoil trip to Peterhof was spectacular. . .that the estate would be revealed as you approached, much in the same way that it would have been to sea-bound travelers of the time.

Sufficed to say, we were disappointed in the view, pictured here. The Hydrofoil is neither cheap, nor convenient in its timing. . .so if there are two or more of you traveling, you might want to consider other options (taxi, car & driver, bus).

Unique Suggestions: If you choose to take the hydrofoil despite it's price and limiting timings, just don't do it for the view. Think of it as a means to an end.

Fun Alternatives: There are buses to Peterhof. . .and a taxi ride split by three people would certainly work out to about the same cost as the hydrofoil, so examine your options.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
