Our party of six spent 3 intensive days in St. Petersburg, guided by Margarita Kabakchi of ULKO Tours. We were delighted with every aspect of the ULKO operation, especially our incredibly knowledgeable guide. Margarita responded to our greater-than-usual interest in arts and culture, to such an extent that by day 3 we were actually trying to stump her with a question, but she answered all (being Russian-born and a university professor helps, apparently). We had good tour-guide experiences in all the Baltic cities, but ULKO was the stand-out company. Based on our experience, everyone in our party would recommend ULKO without reservation.Stuart Laughton

A tour of the Kremlin (including Armoury and Diamond Fund)
The Kremlin used to be a fortress then the residence of the Russian tsars. After the Revolution of 1917 the USSR Government moved in it. Now it is the seat of the Russian President and a unique cultural museum complex compromising palaces, cathedrals and museums.
We will tour the grounds of the Kremlin and visit its cathedrals striking with architecture, ancient frescoes and icons: Assumption Cathedral where Russian tsars and emperors were crowned; Archangel Cathedral - the burial vault of the Russian tsars until 18th centuries; and Annunciation Cathedral, a home church for the royalty. You will get to meet the 2 prominent Russian tsars in person: the Tsar Bell and the Tsar Cannon, the biggest in the world.
While touring the Kremlin we also visit Armoury museum and Diamond Fund.
Armoury museum is famous for the Tsar's regalia such as jewelry crowns, orbs and scepters, clothing of the Russian tsars and tsarinas, royal carriages, collection of arms and armour, gifts to the Russian Tsars from various countries of the West and the East, and the illustrious collection of Faberge Easter eggs.
Kremlin is sure to reveal you some mysteries of the Russian state and soul.
