We recently had the opportunity to spend a couple days in St. Petersburg, Russia as part of a cruise through the Baltic. We were traveling with another couple and we didn't want to participate in a ship-based tour group. We based our decision on the Trip Advisor highly rated Ulko tour company. This was one of the best trip decisions we made. We were assigned Marina as our tour guide and we couldn't have been happier. She was friendly and effervescent and she was very proficient in English. We didn't have too many days but we hired her for about 20 hours in total. She was EXTREMELY proficient with all the historical facts and she was able to adapt the time we had to as little downtime and drive time as possible. We were able to spend a little extra time in some places and cut some others short but we never felt as though we were missing anything at all. We requested to see the metro and she arranged for us to tour a couple stations and took us on a ride and we also requested some authentic food in a great restaurant and she made reservations and talked us through the menu. We have nothing but amazing things to say about Marina and ULKO Tours and we will recommend them to any friends and family traveling to St. Petersburg!!!! Well done, keep up the good work!!

We cruised 12 days on Adventure of The seas and prearranged the Ulko tour for a group of 16.
We enjoyed it very much with Marrianna as our guide. We pretty much saw what we wanted to see although the drive from port to SP was long and traffic jam was bad. Lunch was included on both days, quality of food was so-so, service was good. The restaurants were very nice and close to the points of interest. We did not have the chance to ride on hydrofoil due to weather condition. I don't really know how many people get to do it as I understand it is usually windy there.
I would spend more time there may be in future land tour and will recommend Ulko to others.

Enjoyed the tours in St Petersburg by Ulko Tours. Maryanne the guide was very knowledgeable and reliable. The tour was comprehensive and cover all the sights we wanted to see during the 2 days the cruise ship was in St Petersburg. We did not have the hydrfoil ride as it was not operating. The drive from PeterHof Palace was time-consuming due to the traffic Jam. They should have dropped us at a Metro/subway station on the outskirts so that we can take the subway into town and the tour bus could have fetched us in town
Notwithstanding this, we are very pleased with ULKO tours and would recommend ULKO Tours to others going to St Petersburg

I never thought that ULKO TOURS would provide us an excellent service from start to end. From a numeber of suggested tour agencies suggested by my fellow tourmates , I am SO GRATEFUL that i was able to convince our group of 15 pax to join ULKO> . All the tourguides are well mannered, pleasing pernonality and well knowlegeable in their fields of work. Even the increment weather in some parts of our Baltic tour can't disappoint us from the reliable service provided by ULKO TOURS. Very special thanks to Ms Elena Ulko , who had been very patient with all our inquiries and her swift response as well. TO MS ELENA, ... I am very POSITIVE that ULKO TOURS will continue to shine as one of the leading tour providers in Baltic and RUssia.. I will SURELY recommend ULKO TOURS to all Baltic tourists as their first choice. TO MS ELENA... thank you very much!
