"The three days spent with your guide and driver were the nicest tour we have ever had. Your company is lucky to have such wonderful, knowledgeable individuals working there. We will definitely recommend Insider Tours to everyone we talk to about our cruise. Thank you for a wonderful, memorable experience."

Tom Edenton, USA

"We all enjoyed our cruise and the different cities we visited but the highlight of our trip were our three days in St. Petersburg that we spent with Insiders. It was very special for us to have a private guide with outstanding qualifications during our visit. We were able to learn so much more about St. Petersburg than if we had been in one of those tour buses with 40 or 50 people. And were able to take so many more pictures too!"

Patricia Holland, USA

"We wanted to thank you for a great three day tour. We saw everything we wanted to see and more. We had such a great experience compared to our shipmates who booked the ships tours. I was a little concerned to book through the Internet, but Insider Tour was completely professional and Sasha and Sergei gave us a great custom tour. I would not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone cruising to St. Petersburg."

Don and Monica Peters, USA

"I would like to let know that we thoroughly enjoyed the memorable St Pete's tour. Everything was first rate. Natasha and the driver were extremely helpful, enthusiastic and considerate. I just can't praise them enough. We enjoyed everything in the itinerary. The two extra events, the boat tour and the subway visit were a pleasant surprise (everyone LOVES them!). Thanks so much for the wonderful job you've all done."
