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

our guide Daria was very knowledgeable and very patient with everyone. Only thing was missing was info about lunch and freedom to buy our own lunch if we want to upgrade.

Would like to thank everyone involved in making our stay in Saint Petersberg everything that we had expected. Prior to going on the trip, researching the Internet Ulko was def standing out to me, both on price and TripAdvisor reviews, saying that their website does lack professionalism and was worried at first when contacting them. This was my first introduction... More

Amazing! Superb company with an excellent tour guide and a driver. We were a group of 8 and had the best 2 days you could want including surprises and things that happened that we were not expecting or was mentioned on the Viator web site. We booked through Viator and they came up with Uklotours. Book, book and book! Don't... More

From the time we first inquired about a tour, we were impressed with ULKO. They responded to all our emails promptly and their prices are notably lower than the cruise lines and their TA competition. Our guide Nadya was unbelievably knowledgable and made our two days in St. Petersburg unforgettable. Our group of 6 (including 2 small children) jumped to... More
