We booked a three day tour and Liz was our guide! She was fantastic, as was our driver. They were both very knowledgeable and nice. Having a private guide (and transportation) to many of the locations we visited was key! I can't imagine trying to navigate through any of these museums or sites without the background information and personal experience... More

We had an adult weekend for six of us in St Petersburg very kindly booked by our wife's with tours around the palace and museums, that alone was spectacular, but we landed on our feet having Mariana as our tour guide, so knowledgeable and passionate about the city and her job. We all agree this girl is a credit and... More

We booked a private tour of the Hermitage before we left Australia via AMEX. Our friendly guide Marina arrived at the specified time and walked us through to the Winter Palace, the Hermitage and the exhibitions we were most interested in. She was friendly, knowledgeable and genuinely happy to discuss anything we wanted to know about Russia's past and present.... More

We recently used a private guide, Marina, provided by Ulko Tours during a 3 day stay in St Petersburg. We were a party of 2 adults and 2 teenage boys. From my first contact via email with Ulko tours I had a very positive impression. Ksenia, the sales person whom I was in contact with to create a tailor made... More

We arrived by cruise ship in St. Petersburg on a horrible rainy morning. Ulko Tours made a bad weather day fabulous. Our tour guide and driver were unequaled. All connections were smooth, admission to all attractions quick, and the expertise of our tour guide was astounding. Our driver was also on point at all times. The cold rainy days, and... More

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

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
