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

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.
