What people are saying about St. Petersburg

A great way to start your trip at St. Petersburg

(disclaimer: the itinerary differs from the description in GYG, but it is worth it anyway!) During the tour, we visited a doughnut shop (that has been around since 1959) and a railway station which has magnificent interior design, both of which we would have missed had we explored the city on our own. We also visited a few of the significant metro stations. Our guide, Anna, also treated us to traditional Russian snack and (a small amount of) liqueur. Adding on to that, Anna was also friendly and knowledgeable. She shared many interesting stories about the buildings we passed, and provided tips and recommendations for our trip (for the next few days). This is definitely a great way to appreciate St. Petersburg and its rich culture!

3-Hour Walking Tour: St Petersburg Like a Local Reviewed by Hwee Jian, 19/06/2019

Great value for rich history & time saved

Tickets were hassle-free. After our tour of the palace we saw the queue....... no wonder some people spend up to 4 hours waiting for tickets. Totally worth the price given the time needed to stand in line. Our guide, Alexandra is an extremely lovely girl. She told us the best spots for pictures and of course the rich history of Catherine Palace. She is very knowledgeable and helpful. (and she also gave us tips on best restaurants in St Petersburg!) Couldn't have asked for a better guide. Overall a great experience and would 100% recommend the tour instead of doing this on your own!

Pushkin: Catherine Palace and Gardens Guided Tour Reviewed by Anonymous, 27/06/2019

Well organized, accurate description of what included and what not

The palace is gorgeous and taking a tour like this was ideal for us: skip the line, small group (not really much of a group activity as the tour of the palace is with audio guide and then one explores the gardens on his/her own), independent transportation to/from the site (we took a taxi to the palace and returned with the hydrofoil). Allow at least 2 hours to explore the huge lower gardens, and come half a hour before activity start time to explore the upper gardens as well (free).

Sophia was a fantastic guide and made our trip unforgetable.

First of all I want to thank Ekaterina Povalkina form ULKOtours as her assistance and communication went excellent and she did everything to fulfull our wishes. Second we had a very good match with our guid Sophia. She was very friendly and had a good knowledge of the places we visited and in addition she was also very helpful when we had questions related to general information.

The tour was good, the guide she was perfect.

The tour was good, the guide she was perfect. BUT the company that sold it is tricking. I was under the impression that I am booking a privet tour for two and on the way to Peterhof I have found out that we are collecting one more couple. the tour description (probably intentionally ) does not state clearly that it can be shared tour for 2 to 18 people.
