Throughout the booking process, Elena was excellent, promptly responding to my e-mails and arranging our tour based on our feedback. The Driver (Igor) & our Guide (Maria) where very... More

In preparing for our Celebrity Cruise of Scandinavia and Russia, we decided to book 5 of the port cities through Ulko as a single package. Communication was great, no deposit was required (!) and we have just now returned from that trip. The tours (and the knowledgeable, friendly guides) were fantastic in every way. The company stated that the number... More

Group Tour Guaranteed Tallinn:True to their word Ulko Tours met us in Tallinn even though we were the only ones to book their tours on our cruise liner. We had therefore our own personal guide for the day! We also had our own personal driver who took us the short distance into town. As we were in the rear seats... More

Booked directly with Elena who was easily reached in St. Petersburg FL. She answered all my concerns and questions about visiting Russia and accommodated our request to have Marguarite as our guide. Booked two day intensive tour which exceeded all of our expectations. All visas and information was promptly emailed and the visit could not have gone more smoothly. Marguarite... More

Excellent 2-day tour using the guaranteed group tour option, booked as a package with a second city for the discount. Saw all the possible sights, much more than we could have gotten through any one excursion from the ship for a much better price. Katya did a great job as a guide, excellent Enlish, and Sergei was always waiting for... More

Our guides, Marina and Artem, showed us all of St Petersburg's most famous landmarks. Their English was exceptional. They sped us to the front of all lines. They spoke knowledgeably and engagingly about St Petersburg's history. They answered all of our questions - not an easy task with four different travelers. They accommodated special requests like visiting a few of... More

Our tour guide met us at customs with a sign with our names on it. Out tour was in an Infinity. Our guide was a wealth of information. As a travel agent I highly recommend Ulko Tours! A plus!
