  • Our guide Margherita and driver Edward from UlkoTours were fabulous! We had a wonderful informative and interesting three days in St Petersburg thanks to Margherita's extensive knowledge of St Petersburg as well as Edward's amazing driving skills in heavy traffic. We felt very special being picked up at the cruise ship each morning and dropped back each night in a beautiful Mercedes. The itinerary was great and we saw beautiful palaces and museums as well as unexpected treats like riding the fabulous subway system of St Petersburg and having a private cruise along the beautiful canals. Nothing was too much trouble and unlike the usual rushed guided tours with bus loads of people, we were really relaxed and were able to determine the time spent at each attraction. I would strongly recommend this tour as it not only provides great value for money esp compared to cruise ship tours but as a lovely way to explore the beautiful city of St Petersburg.

  • Those three days were fantastic! There were four of us in our group. Daria, our tour guide was outstanding. She spoke excellent English and was friendly, informative and flexible. If we went back to St. Petersburg or travelled to Moscow I would definitely try and get Daria to be our guide. Super nice lady.
