We had a private tour with Maria and Archy, and it was wonderful! Maria is a wealth of knowledge, and she helped Russian history come alive for us.

We were on a Baltic Cruise. St. Petersburg was one of the ports with a two day stopover. We had visited St. Petersburg before. The only tour we required was to Peterhof. I checked out other companies but Ulko was by far the most reasonable price. They offered a discount for payment by Credit Card in advance which we took... More

What a wonderful team to show you this beautiful, richly historic city. Archy picks you up at your hotel, then skillfully maneuvers through the traffic and delivers you to the door of each site, and Marianna describes the history of the location, bringing the buildings to life. With her lively descriptions, you can picture the events that took place in... More

St. Petersburg, Russia Planning cruise ship excursions for four adults and one child that included family members with medical and mobility problems was challenging. Using excursion bus transportation was not feasible. Discovering Ulko Tours and discussing our needs with Elena set our minds at ease. Organizational Plans suited our needs and schedule including a private van that accommodated our group,... More

We visited St Petersburg, Russia on the 14th September 2015 by Cruise ship - Ocean Princess. A private 2 day tour for the two of us with ULKO was only slightly more expensive than that provided by the Ship for a group. Fortunately we had fantastic weather - warm, sunny and blue skys. The chauffeur car driven by Yuri was... More

Unlike a 48 hour cruise passenger, we spent 9 glorious days in St. Petersburg and really learned the nuances of this beautiful city thanks to the guidance of Elena. She helped us book two distinctly different hotels in two unique neighborhoods and assisted with our Swan Lake ballet tickets. Next, she arranged two of her best guides, Nadya and Katya,... More

In August 2015, ULKO Tours organized and executed a truly outstanding 2-day private tour of St. Petersburg for our 28-person group, which arrived via a cruise ship. ULKO was extremely knowledgeable, efficient and easy to work with in setting up tour arrangements. They selected and timed the pre-arranged itinerary to best fit traveling conditions in the city and ensure safe... More

We visited St. Petersburg, Russia on August 16, 2015. Aside from the fact, the weather could not have been better, sunny, warm and no rain, our tour guide, Maryanna and driver Andrej were a joy to be with. We got to see so many beautiful sites in St. Petersburg. The 2 day schedule was filled from 7:30 am to 6:00... More

On a recent Baltic Cruise my wife and I utilized Ulko Tours for shore excursions in Berlin and St Petersburg. Some had recommended taking the tours offered by the cruise line, but after hearing of Ulko and doing some research on line, we chose this company and were very pleased with the experience. Dealing withUlko on line to set the... More

I first got in touch with Ulko tours as a cheaper option in St Petersburg, rather than paying for a tour directly off the cruise ships. For 4 of us, we had a fabulous 2 day tour, plus I added a couple of extra hours to day one, we had a private (Italian speaking) guide and driver for the whole... More
