Our train from Moscow arrived at the Moskovsky railway station after 11.00pm (in June 2013), where we were met on the platform by our driver for the transfer to our hotel. Incidentally, the same driver looked after us throughout our visit and took us to the platform at the Finlayndsky railway station on our departure to Helsinki. Our Ulko Tour... More

We booked private tour, which turned out to be the most perfect we ever could have. I wish we could have same guide in Moscow and other cities we visited while in Russia. Tour guide knows history very well, being a historian myself, I was amazed how good our guide was. All monuments and buildings, museums and cathedrals came alive... More

Elena was very helpful in the planning process. Given the short time I had in St. Petersburg, I did a custom tour seeing Peterhof in the morning and the Hermitage in the afternoon traveling by hydrofoil. My guide made the experience extremely worth it. She was incredibly informative and provided a significant amount of insight. I would definitely recommend using... More

From our initial inquiry, the booking process and Elena, our guide for three days and the driver, it was a fabulous experience. The tours were custom designed to meet our needs and Elena provided us with a lot of insight from her broad knowledge of this fabulous city. The visit to the Gold Room at The Hermitage was a highlight... More

During our visit to Russia, Ulko Tours provided private guides in both Moscow and St. Petersburg. We arranged a customized tour through the company, and they were able to design something specific to our interests. They acquired all necessary admission tickets which saved considerable time and eliminated lineups, making our visit much more pleasant. In both cities, the guides were... More

Ulko tours made our tour of St. Petersburg the highlight of our Baltic cruise. We heard about Ulko Tours through a friend and after reading all the reviews, we made our booking online. I sent an e-mail to make some inquiries and promptly received answers to all my questions. I even made a free phone call to them...no problem connecting.... More

We had a great trip to the Baltic on a cruise. We decided to take small group private tours with Ulko rather than go with the large groups the ship offered. The guides were all very experienced and informative in all the ports. We particularly loved the 2 day tour of Saint Petersburg. Our guide Marianna was lovely, young and... More

We were pleased on all fronts with Ulko. Our guide in St Petersburg was Maria, and she provided terrific commentary and answered all our many questions. We are fairly independent travellers but we had some specific needs in St Petersburg and in Moscow and she set up the day perfectly and at a fair price. She is also very communicative,... More

On our last day in St Petersburg, Paulina and our driver Vlad from Ulko tours picked us up from our river cruise, and our tour began. Our original itinerary was to include a return visit to the Hermitage. However, we saw so much on our initial visit that Paulina quickly reassessed and made the day perfect. Our first stop was...

We arranged a Grand Tour of Moscow & St Petersburg in May/June this year through Ulko Tours. Dealing directly with Elena Ulko was very easy. She was very pleasant and helpful. According to the tour program we were expecting two days of accompanied guiding, one day with a driver, and with visits to the New Maiden Cemetery, Leo Tolstoy’s house/museum,... More
