I was visiting St Petersburg for the day and wanted a private and personal tour. My guide Marina was amazing! I was picked up and shown all the sights of the city. She was friendly, attentive and so knowledgeable. We visited The Hermitage museum together and I had such a wonderful day, I can't thank her enough, she truly is... More

We just spent two fabulous days in St. Petersburg with Marianna as our guide and Artem our driver. Marianna is extremely knowledgeable and an excellent guide. Artem kindly made extra stops for me to take photos! We also spent a day touring the city of Moscow with Anna. Anna was equally knowledgeable and a pleasure to spend the day with.... More

On our trip across Russia on the Trans-Siberian Railway, we found that Russia (a beautiful country) is generally not yet prepared for tourism in the 21st century. Our experience with Ulko Tours and Marianna was one the notable exceptions and our best tour by far. Marianna took us on a customized tour of St. Petersburg, which maximized our short stay... More

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
