Wonderful experience. Irina was a very knowlegable guide who, as a former history teacher in my other life, I could intelligently discuss the history of Russia. Alexandr our driver did a great job getting us around town and was extremely courteous.It was well worth the cost and I will defintely use them again when in St Petersburg which was an absolutely beautiful city. Thank You Elena, Irina & Alexandr.
Elena, I don't even know where to begin to tell you how much we appreciate all that you and your company did to make us have the trip of a lifetime. Everyone in the group was so impressed with your professionalism, organization, reliability and knowledge of the area. In fact, everyone commented on how the guides and excursions through the cruise ship did not even begin to compare to the service Ulko tours provided.
EVERY aspect of our experience with you was a success. From the quality and reliability of the transportation, to the extraordinary access to venues, to the selection of lunch and dinner locales, to the order of itenerary, everything was perfection. (The private tour of the Yusupov Palace was a particular favorite for many.)
Our Ulko guides were friendly, energetic and communicated with ease. Marinna was so patient and accommodating. She always went out of her way to honor our requests and answered any questions that we had. My mother-in-law has traveled the world and she said your guides and tours were the best she had ever experienced. Your hard work made my life so much easier since I was trying to please 24 people with different interests and ages. I was so relieved that we were in your competent hands.
Dear Elena and Marianna,
Sorry I am so late in sending this photos to you but better late than never.
We had such a wonderful two days with Marianna. This was truly the highlight of our Baltic cruise.
I have recommended Ulko Tours and Marianna to everyone I know as well as on the internet.
Thanks to you both for making our St Petersburg visit such a fantastic experience.
Hope that you enjoy these pictures, I will delete this website in about a month so feel free to download or use these before I erase them.
PS: Please let me know you received this OK and that you could view the pictures.
I want to apologize for the delay in getting back to you on our 8/27- 28 St. Petersburg Tour. We just returned from the cruise Thursday afternoon and have been trying to recover from accumulated agency work ever since (as well as during the latter part of the cruise).
Let me start by saying: It couldn’t have been better !! As you requested, I have submitted a Trip Advisor review, which really says it all (I am pasting in my Trip Advisor comments below this email and also attaching a completed ULKO form with the requested additional feedback).
Our group really loved the tour and raved about it throughout the balance of our cruise – it was the highlight of the cruise experience for everyone, I believe. If you receive any feedback forms from individuals in the group and are comfortable in sharing with us, that would be most helpful to us.
Elena, I can’t thank you enough for your patience and competence in working with us to set up this tour. And your choice of a guide for us was perfect – Mariana was outstanding. She really bonded with our group and did a good job of keeping us on the tight schedule. The restaurant experiences were also great – I knew that Podvorye would be good on Day 1, but also your choice of Palermo was perfect for Day 2 (they did a great job -- the food and service was excellent and very efficient, which was especially important for Day 2 – they even provided complimentary wine, which was not specified in our plan).
Elena, I also appreciate your taking the time to meet us on our arrival for the tour. We will hopefully be arranging similar tour opportunities (individual as well as group) on other Scandinavia and northern Europe itineraries and will certainly get in touch with you to help us on that where you are able to do so.
Thanks again for all your help and support – and for the great results ULKO delivered for our group.
Best regards, Nate
