Please note, that during high tourist summer season in Saint Petersburg it is highly advisable to inform your tour operator of your sightseeing preferences and specific interests because some venues/museums require advance reservation to guarantee your Fast-Track (no waiting) admission, for example: The Hermitage Museum, Catherine's palace in Tsarskoye Selo or Grand Palace in Peterhof, also Yusupov Palace.
Some places, like the churches, can be visited without advance reservations (though still highly recommended because ticket lines can get very long and upsetting).

This company catered to exactly what we wanted for our day trip. We wanted photo stops at beautiful places, rest breaks and lunch outside of the touristy areas, and the ability to maximize our short time on shore to see as much as possible. Marina, our guide, was AWESOME and provided a tremendous amount of knowledge and insight to the many places we visited. Highly recommended!

We visited St Petersburg during a Baltic Cruise and 4 or us booked this tour, we did not want to do all the museums, we just wanted to experience SPB. It was brilliant. UKLO made the arrangements very clear and simple and they met us exactly as they said they would. Our tour guide Violetta was amazing, really friendly, helpful and interesting. It was so much better being in a small group as we were able to avoid the hoards of coaches at the tourist sites and had much more time doing the things that we wanted or that Violetta recommended. I would recommend to anyone it was far better than the large group cruise line tours where you spend most of your time getting on and off the coaches at each site!

If you want to learn the history of St Petersburg then this is the tour for you. We had an excellent guide, Liza, who we spent two days with. I can't say enough about how wonderful she was. She was so knowledgeable and made sure that we saw all the important sights. She was accompanied by Sergei' who was the driver and worked as a team to get us to see all of St. Petersburg in comfort and a controlled pace that made this visit to Russia the trip of a lifetime. We would love to return to Russia and have Liza show us Moscow. She made everything so interesting even my 15 year old son cant wait to return.

We could not have asked for a better travel guide than Marianna with ULKO Tours for our private excursion of St. Petersburg. She demonstrated a vast knowledge of the city, excellent English skills,
and a willingness to be flexible in arranging our itinerary as the tour went on. She also demonstrated a genuine interest in us as tourists in Russia and a keen sense of humor. The driver Oleg drove us around skillfully and knew where to take us. You could not ask for a better tour experience. ULKO Tours and Marianna and Oleg provided us with an A+ experience.

Amazing day. Our sweet guide Ksenia helped us to perfect the program for our group of 6 adults and 3 children. We wrote together and we were safe from the start. It was so nice to have our own guide and chauffeur so everything was as we wanted. And then it was even far cheaper than the excursions the MSC could offer, so I can only recommend using Ulkotours
