What to expect
Meet your private guide and driver at your St Petersburg hotel. Then, travel by comfortable, air-conditioned sedan or minivan (depending on the size of your group) to the magnificent Peterhof estate, on the edges of the city. Upon arrival, gain early admission to the palace ahead of the main crowds of the day. Set off with your guide to experience the splendors of the interiors as you hear tales of Peter the Great and how he intended Peterhof to outshine the grandeur of Versailles. Admire the highlights, including the opulent Throne Room, main staircase and the stunning White Dining Room. Listen as your guide explains the architects and thinking behind each room, and hear how they have now been restored to their original glory having been severely damaged by bombing during World War II. After the palace tour, proceed outside for a guided stroll of the spectacular Lower Gardens, famous for their fountains, and in particular, the spectacular, gold Grand Cascade. If the timing is right, be lucky enough to witness the fountain switching-on ceremony  — an unforgettable occasion. Wander around the parkland to see highpoints such as Peter’s beloved, waterfront Monplaisir garden palace, and if you wish, break for a quick lunch (own expense) at one of the cafés. End your tour with a ride back to your St Petersburg hotel in the early afternoon. Please note: no fountains run and no early admission is available at the Peterhof during the low, winter season (October-April). At these times, regular admission is included in the tour cost.

This place really has to be seen to be believed! It is gorgeous.
Jun 2019 • Friends
We were on a two week river cruise with a two day extention in St. Petersburg, so we wanted to pick up additional tours. Our travel agent booked the several additional tours for us with Ulko. When we discovered we would have a private tour guide, driver and vehicle, we cancelled additional tours we had booked through our ship and re-booked with Ulko. It was a wonderful decision. As our tour was private, our guide was able to adjust our pace to suit two people who had had knee replacements.

Our guide, Katya, was knowledgeable, kind, and so helpful. She found us seats to wait while she got our tickets. She was very savvy about the way things run in Russia and always seemed to get us into the sites with the least wait and fuss. We were with Katya and Sergi, our driver, for five wonderful days. Driving in St. Petersburg is a nightmare between the traffic and double parking. Sergio handled it all masterfully and was always waiting for us right where expected and on time. How he ever found parking I will never know.

Visiting the various historical sites was wonderful, but our time was enhanced immeasureably by the fun we had with Katya and Sergei. By the end of our five days we were sorry to part; they felt like friends. There is no comparison between large group tours and these small, private tours and our Ulko tours were less expensive.
