"As I look back on our cruise, the time that stands out most is our Insider Tour of St. Petersburg. We were very impressed with both the warmth and professionalism of "Irene" and Vladimir. I will never forget them. I don't think we could have seen more or had a better experience in the short time we had in your beautiful city."

Hollis Mason, USA

"I want to thank you for arranging the wonderful day we had in your city! A person always goes on trust when they make arrangements over the Internet. They are not sure what they are getting and how it will work out. But ours worked out even better than we expected. Marina was a terrific guide, the car was new and comfortable and Sasha the driver was very good. We were able to do the things we wanted to do without the big crowds from the ship's tours. I hope a lot of people find you on line as I did because it was well worth it."

Joyce Zweig and Jack Halberstadt, Canada

"The experience on our cruise stop in St. Petersburg was superb. We were met promptly, didn't have any delays, and the tour was excellent! We went every place we wanted and then some; including a ride on the subway, a walk along Nevsky Prospect, a visit to a "fresh" market, lunch in a little out of the way place with no tourists, etc. One of the best parts was that we didn't have to wait on a single line, and therefore got to see more with less inconvenience. It was a great trip, and we heartily recommend Insider Tour for anyone wanting the best experience in St. Petersburg."

John Horsting, USA

"Our tour of St. Petersburg was GREAT! Our guide and driver were wonderful, knowledgeable and fun. The tour was everything you said it would be and more....it exceeded everyone's expectations. Our "hats off" to the Insider team. I will not hesitate to recommend you to any/all of my friends who travel to Russia. Thanks again and all the best!"
