Was in St Petersburg on business and emailed at least 7 tour companies trying to find a group tour to join. Since it was the off-season, there were no group tours and the private tour prices I was offered were out of my budget. Ksenia from Ulko Tours was the only one who came back to me with a viable...

When a friend learned that we would be visiting Russia, he emphatically recommended Elena and Ulko Tours. I thought it was some kind of find since I hadn't heard of Ulko. Turned out that once I contacted Ulko, I found their ads in numerous places. Recently, I ran across their ad in my college newspaper. The fact is, Ulko was... More

We were a group of 8 who found each other on Cruise Critic. I worked with Elena, the President of Ulko Tours to make adjustments to their regular 3 day tour. We wanted to see the Siege of Leningrad Museum (heartbreaking, but mesmerizing), have lunches in local restaurants and see the Gold Room in the Hermitage. Elena always was more... More

Knowledgeable and pleasant our tour guide Marina went out of her way to make our stay special. We really enjoyed her tour of the museums and her knowledge was extensive. It was really impressive to have someone who knew that much in such an extensive collection as the Hermitage. We also found her easy to understand and appreciated her flexibility... More

We booked our 2 day private tour with Ulko Tours for our overnight cruise stop on our Baltic cruise. Our email request was immediately answered and we booked the intensive 2 day tour. The price was very reasonable for a 2 person private tour, especially when compared a similar, large group tour itinerary offered by the cruise ship. Our guide,... More

Four of us were on a Baltic Sea Cruise in September. After having scoured Tripadvisor I booked tours for Talinn, Berlin, Helsinki and 2 days in St Petersburg with Ulkotours. I am very glad I did as our experience was above expectations. The cruise line had expressly stated that only people on ship organised tours would be able to enter... More

While in St Petersburg, Russia, I booked a one-day trip with Ulko, after reading the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. (They are very tenacious in following up to be sure these reviews are completed!) I requested a private guide for a one day excursion that included Catharine’s Palace and Peterhof, for our group consisting of four adults, including my 84... More
