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.
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.
From the first pickup at the airport, to the last drop off at the train station, this tour was fabulous. The drivers were professional and safe, as well as friendly and accommodating. The guides, Natasha and Marina were delightful to spend time with. Their knowledge of their country and their competence as tour guides was exemplary.
Thank you for making our tours in St. Petersburg so enjoyable. Irina Mitireva was our guide and she is a gem. My husband has a mobility scooter and she took wonderful care of him. She was very knowledgeable and her English was excellent.
Ulko Tours were so easy to deal with while we were planning our trip, they were very responsive to all of our needs and questions. They went the extra mile to make sure that we received the exact tour we wanted.
I spent a month in Russia, and was with an Ulko guide for two days in St. Petersburg and for two days in Moscow. Both guides were very well-informed, resourceful, spoke perfect English, and were fun to be with. They asked about my own particular priorities and made sure that these were included in the tour.
Konstatin war unser höchst kompetenter Guide durch die Stadt mit Besuch der Eremitage. Er ist mit Leib und Seele dabei. Beim abschliessendem Mittagessen konnten wir uns noch über allerelei spannendes Unterhalten<br>
...Our guide Marina with driver Yuri were excellent. Marina spoke very good English, was very professional and friendly with it. She adjusted our schedule to suit the weather, as it was spring time, gave us comprehensive information on every place we visited as well as making the trip a real pleasure....
During our Baltic capitals cruise Ulko tours organized several shore excursions in the ports we were visiting. I was amazed by super organizational skills, friendly atmosphere and ability to handle complicated itineraries. The guides and drivers were absolutely professional, knowledgeable, punctual, empathetic. Tour organizers were available 24/7. Love them.
