Touring St Petersburg Russia has been a life long dream for me so I was very nervous about booking just the right tours so to enhance my experience.

We booked with Ulko Tours after reading several reviews of various companies. We booked a two day intensive tour for seven people in St. Petersburg. Connecting with our guide was very easy. Our driver was fantastic in negotiating the city, and adjectives can hardly express how knowledgeable our guide was for the tour. She even helped up us with our... More

Ulko Tours were so easy to deal with while we were planning our trip, they were very responsive to all of our needs and questions. They went the extra mile to make sure that we received the exact tour we wanted. Once we went on the tours, at the 4 different locations that we set them up for, everything went... More

We were on a Baltic cruise and wanted to organise walking tours in most ports of call. Ulko were very responsive and helpful with our email enquiries. We said what sort of tours we were interested in and they sent us a set of descriptions of possible matches. They were also very open and honest, saying which ports they thought... More

We arranged a private tour of St. Petersburg with ULKOtours. We were provided with tour guide and driver. The car was spotless and very comfortable. CEO Elena was very responsive and easy to work with. Price was very reasonable. Our guide, Maria, was beyond outstanding. Her English was flawless and knowledge boundless.

My mother and I arranged a private three-day tour in late August of St. Petersburg with Ulko Tours. We were a little anxious about the "visa-free" service coming off a cruise ship, but thanks to Ulko Tours' very specific and complete instructions and documents, we had no issues with customs. Our tour guide, Margarita, and driver Edward, were the ultimate... More

We were a group of six who had a private tour on August 12/13 with the most knowledgeable tour guide Margarita. You could see her love for the city in her presentations. She was very flexible to our wishes and adjusted accordingly. It was great how we were able to get in and out of all the major attractions without... More

My wife and I took a 2 day private tour of St. Petersburg 2 weeks ago. Elena custom-designed a tour for us, and we were thrilled with it. Having a car drop us at each place we visited, then bypass virtually all the lines, and then pick us up at the door afterward, was a wonderful luxury. Our guide, Margarita,... More
