The price for value makes this tour one you should book. Because this was a private tour, we were able to design our own itinerary. The best thing was there was ONLY 6 of us on the tour. We went where we wanted to go, got skip the line tickets and avoided a lot of the crowds. The price of this excursion including the admissions to Catherine Palace, Faberge Museum, Hermitage and the Church on Spilled Blood was over one third the cost of the excursion our cruise was offering. We had to move the tour forward a day because of bad weather on the Baltic Sea. The local tour operator - Ulko Tours - was amazing. Ksenia Manager re-scheduled our excursion one day later at no extra charge. Viator was great to book the excursion through and I like that they were another layer between me and the local tour operator in case something went wrong. It was very easy to book the tour and I got exactly what I purchased. The six of us couldn't ask for a better time. A private tour is definitely the way to go.

Our very own guide and driver and provides flexibility on where we wanted to go.
Booked out own Hermitage tickets and took us to a very nice Russian restaurant
for lunch with wonderful local food, the staff just wouldn't pose for selfies with us
which would have completed the Russian experience.

This was a wonderful 8 hr tour of St Petersburg with Ksenia as our guide and Archie as our driver. We rode in a clean, beautiful Toyota Camry anywhere we wanted to go. Ksenia was a wonderful, knowledgeable guide who was SO helpful with my husband who uses a wheelchair for tours. They took us to a wonderful Russian restaurant for lunch and showed us the highlights of the city. Very nice tour and very nice guides!

Our guide and driver were amazing. The company worked with our schedule and itinerary and we had a fantastic day. We had a shore excursion scheduled with the cruise company the following day to tour Catherine and Peterhof Palaces.... we now wish we used this company. It was a great experience!!!

Our tour guide made all the difference in this tour being just right for us. She made sure she knew our interests and tailored the tour so we were able to see all that we requested. She was friendly and provided commentary on how the average Russian lives. Our driver was courteous and drove safely.

This was a great tour. Nadia not how she spelled it was fantastic. Her English was impeccable and her knowledge of the sites was outstanding. She gave us great insights into Russian history and the people and places we visited. The vehicle that we traveled in was new and comfortable. The extras of water and a book about St Petersburg made the tour even better, I would recommend this tour to anyone and I recommend Nadia for any tour!!!!

Four of us traveling together. We avoided the NCL excursions in St Petersburg because of the costs and crowd. The private tour was a perfect replacement. Valentina met us at the terminal, took us to our picks of what we wanted to see. She was great. Spoke perfect English and knows her history. Took rides in subway and visited the cathedrals. Visited the fortress of Peter and Paul where we ran into a pickpocket. BEWARE. He runs the souvenir stand just to the right of the church. He lifted my iPhone out of my pocket and I had gone about 100 yards before I realized it. I returned and told him to give me my phone but he denied it until we called the phone and his souvenir stand started to vibrate. He meekly reached into a cabinet and handed me my phone. Take the tour peoples advice. Be alert. My fault entirely, I let my guard down.

Other than that, it was great, highly recommend ULKOtours.
