"Thank you for all the people and services that you provided for us! Sergei was a wonderful driver, always prompt and courteous. Alexandra was an excellent guide and very informative. We had a really lovely day on the Saturday touring around the city. And thank you for the Ballet tickets. To have a box next to the 'Royal box' was a fantastic experience and a night to remember. If any of my friends go to St. Petersburg I will highly recommend you."

Steve Bareham, Great Britain

"We are now back at home and wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our visit to St Petersburg. It would not have been so without your willingness to work with us on the procedure for doing so and most of all, without the outstanding service provided by our tour guide and driver."

Dean and Kathleen Olson, USA

"We are now back in Vancouver after a great trip. We must thank you for making our trip to your beautiful city such a great experience and introducing us to Russia in such a positive way. We shall certainly pass your name to our friends who will be visiting your area. Many thanks indeed!"

Keith & Marian Goddard, Canada

"It is rare that I am totally uncritical of service providers, but in the case of Insider Tour I have to say that their performance was outstanding. Our guide Marina was exceptionally well informed about all the sights, including the history of the city sights and the stories behind individual paintings and sculptures. On the first day there was a holiday and many city streets were closed to traffic, but through good planning between her and the driver we were not inconvenienced, whereas many of our fellow passengers who went on the ship's bus tours missed out on seeing several scheduled destinations. Top marks to Insider!"
