We chose this excursion the first day of 2 in St. Petersburg cruise port. It was well worth the cost. Transportation and timing was stress free and efficient. Just tell the crew you are going to Moscow and you get off the ship with the early groups. It was a great way to see Moscow and we learned much about Russian people and society along with seeing the amazing landmarks.

We loved this tour. Our time was limited so this was a great way to see everything we wanted to see and travel to Moscow. Anton picked us up from the terminal, flew with us where we met Max in Moscow who showed us all around all the highlights of Moscow. Then we met back up with Anton who rode the train back to St. Petersburg with us. Definitely do this tour.

This is the best excursion we have taken!!! When we went down from the cruise, we went through customs and immigration and a person was already waiting for us with a sign. They took us to the airport on a Mercedes van and a guide Olga came with us during the flight. After an hour we arrived in Moscow and another Mecedes van was waiting for us. They drove us throughout the city and we got a glimpse of all the important sites in Moscow. They dropped us off at the Kremlin and gave us an extense visit of all the main churches and buildings there. Then we visited the Red Square and St Basil Cathedral. We chose to skip lunch so we could visit the Space Museum. It was very interesting and we really loved it. After an hour-visit, we went to the rail station by metro.... what a beautiful subway they have! We stepped into our Sapsan train to get back to St Petersburg where our cruise was. We highly recommend this tour for anyone who takes a cruise and stops 2 days in St Petersburg. The guides of Ulko Tours were very professional . Thanks for everything.
