I usually avoid group tours because I prefer to go on at my own pace. When I went to Versailles in Paris I saw bus loads of people show up and everyone on the bus had to go at one pace while a guide had a megaphone or headset. It seemed so inefficient and unpleasant.
Is it better for people to goto Peterhof on their or with guides?
If guides are better, what company do people suggest? Or, if there is not a guide/company you suggest, how much time should I allocate? Knowing how much time will help me pick a tour company because different companies spend different amounts of time. When I went to Versailles I spent all day there because I saw the equestrian performance, went to all of the little houses(which were not spectacular), saw the interior and the fountains.
Are the little buildings at Peterhof worth seeing?
