Other tours offered the show at the same price and the return was included.
To pay an extra $100.00 (american:crispy,undammaged,etc..),to me as a canadian,my price came up to 150.00 dollars plus.
The driver was very courteous to and from the show and we could have tipped him for his good service.
I do not understand this added fee.
I will not book again with Ulko Tours..with these kinds of fees and the no possibility of cancellations.

Tatiana was an excellent guide. Very knowlegable and got us into places earlier than we normally would have, particularly Hermitage, which had huge queues

Hot little bus with no AC . No wifi . Tours lengthy . Lunch on the first day was horrid , not palatable !! Too many palaces , see one you have seen them all. Tour guide tried to squeeze in all the points . It was way too many things to accomplish . There was hardly anytime for us to enjoy the sights or wander around.

Dear Diane,
Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to hear your impressions of our 2-day Intensive Join-In tour were not the most positive ones :( Not all our buses are equipped with wifi.
I would like to explain, that the program you have chosen is the most intensive and packed program for cruise ship visitors and it includes really a lot of museums, palaces and churches for people who would like to see as much as possible and cover as many sights as possible.
This tour does not allow for any free time or self-exploration of the city because of the general nature of this highly intensive and active tour of Saint Petersburg.
I believe a private 2-day Easy tour would have been a much better fit for your requirements, to take it easy, at a relaxed pace to enjoy the sights and wander around.

Thank you for your comment about lunches and a/c problem on the bus. I will make sure that these issues are taken care of and both restaurant and the transport company are advised about the faults in their operations.

Sincerely,
Elena Ulko

Couldn't have asked for a better private tour of St. Petersburg for our family. Our guide Nadia was wonderful, she had our itinerary worked out perfectly per my requests. She was our private guide everywhere we went, was engaging and an absolute expert! So glad I used Ulko tours. I would use them again without hesitation! I would defiantly request Nadia...
