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

We were a group of six people on a cruise and decided to take a private tour with Ulko Tours and we were very happy with this company. They delivered what we were promised in a very comfortable way. Our new bus could accommodate 10 more people, we had a private canal tour and everywhere they took us we could... More

Our group of friends were taking a Baltic Sea trip in July that included two days in St. Petersburg, Russia. We were told many times that you had to take the cruise ship's excursions in Russia if you didn't want to have to get a visa. Through one of our fellow travelers, I was told about a company called Ulko... More

Our tour guides were very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. We covered a good deal of material, and they were very good at keeping us on schedule. I would definitely work with them again.

My wife and I were doing a Baltic cruse in early July and decided that we would like to have a personal guide for our three days in St. Petersburg. I am a amateur photographer and I did not want to be constrained by a busload of other tourists. Six months before the cruise a friend told me about Ulko... More

Although it was a 3 hour bus ride to Berlin from Warnemunde Port, it was well worth the trip. The bus was at the port waiting for us. There was a rest stop on the way to Berlin. Our American expat guide meet us in Berlin for the 6 hour tour. Brian did a great job of helping us understand... More

Had a great time with Marina our guide for 3 days in St Petersburg, she was amazing! I don't think there is anything she doesn't know about her homeland. Thank you Marina. The other tours were also very well done, we are very happy to refer Ulko Tours to everyone . Thanks again, Ann & Paul, Australia

We had one and a half days to see and do as much as possible in Moscow. My parents' in law recommended Ulko Tours who they had used previously in Moscow and St Petersburg. I got in contact via email and immediately received suggested itineraries and quotes. We settled on a 1.5 day walking tour in Moscow with a guide... More

We had a great two day tour with guide Mikhail. And our driver was excellent. But we wasted over an hour on the second day because of bad planning by the office. When I explained this to the owner, she made me an insulting offer of $35 refund and refused to take responsibility for the error made in the planning... More

Dear jmdskyline, Thank you for your review and comments. In no way it was my intention to suggest that your time is invaluable or to insult you with the refund offer I had made, since the amount I have offered was based on the hourly cost of your tour. Had we been an airline or a cruise line, instead of... More
