I have used Ulko tour services multiple times since 2008. This is a first class, wonderful tour company that is thorough with details, anticipates needs and flexible with change of tour itineraries, time frames etc. I used Ulko tours on 2 separate occasions this past summer. I had one family member that experienced an accident prior to the trip (a... More

Visited Hermitage with very attentive, patient, and sweet guide Kaesinaja, who was full of historical, artistic, and architectural detail. Made sure we did not miss important art and architectural detail. Also was driven across city to famous resturant by UKLO boss Elena, who was stunningly attractive area historical guide. Most enjoyable true Russian pork/beef borsch meal, shaslick (sic), sturgeon, and... More

We only had one day in port on a cruise and wanted to see specific things without the hassle of a large group excursion. So we booked a private tour for myself, my husband, and our two children age 18 and 20. Nadya, was our tour guide, and she was FANTASTIC! She gave us insight about Russsia, and the history... More

I'll admit that I was a little nervous about booking with a smaller company for our private tour. But they were very responsive (via internet) to my questions, honest in their dealings, and offered better prices...so I decided to give them a try. It was definitely the right decision! Our guide (Liza) was such a pleasure to deal with: knowledgeable,... More

Visited St Petersburg on a short hop visa free overnight stay with 4 friends cruising from Finland. We booked a private two day guided tour to try to see as much as possible in the time that we had. We couldn't have asked for anything more from Ulko tours. They were prompt in picking us up, our guide Nadya was... More

An absolutely amazing two days made extra special by our guide, Nadya, whose knowledge of both English and St Petersburg were outstanding. She kept on track for both days of a very intensive tour of the city and nearby palaces. She even managed to find time to fit in an extra request of mine to visit the Bronze Horseman. Also... More

We enjoyed a Baltic Cruise on MV Magellan, the highlight of which was a two day stopover in St Petersburg. The cruise company recommended their in-house tours, but they did not cover all the sights we wanted to see. After some research, we chose Ulko. Making this kind of decision is really a pig in a poke job, as one... More

After WEEKS of research, I selected Ulko for our three day visit to St. Petersburg because (1) they offered the greatest flexibility/ability to customize our itinerary, (2) had the best feature-for-feature pricing of any of their competitors, and (3) Elena's (the owner of the company) responses to all my email and phone questions left me feeling that I was working...

We went to Saint Petersburg with 25 people ranging in age from 15-months-old to 75 years old in August 2016. Many in the group have traveled to multiple places in the world over the years. Ulko tours is by far the best tour group any of us have ever had. I cannot say enough good things about them. From the... More

We visited The Hermitage with Marianna from Ulko tours. What a fantastic tour she gave our small party. With perfect time management of the long queues, she had us inside and ready to walk round round in no time. Her knowledge and her enthusiasm for all the works on display was fantastic. We also did all the major sihts with... More
