"I want to thank you so much for the tour you gave us. It was a real treat to experience the feeling of what Russia is really like and our wonderful experience with your guide will last a lifetime. I am sure we could not have found anyone with more knowledge of the sites in St. Petersburg or the history of your magnificent city. After 5 minutes, it was as though we had known her for life."

Ralph Mangum, USA

"Thanks to you and your team we had the time of our lives doing the Roll Like a Russian 3 day tour of St Petersburg. We can't speak more highly of our experience with Insider - everything was handled very professionally and we had complete confidence that all would be arranged as we wanted. Many thanks to you all, we are very appreciative."

Pam and Lindsay Hasty, Australia

"We were met every day at 9 AM by Natalie and her driver and given the VIP treatment. There were 4 of us in total and we were all very impressed with everything especially the amazing sights of St Petersburg. We had no problems with immigration though we didn't have our own visas. Best way to see everything short of a magic carpet!"

David Mears, USA
