Two very different yet profoundly Russian capitals

  • By visiting St. Petersburg's royal palaces and Moscow's stately Kremlin with the world-famous Red Square you will get a Russia experience like no other

Travel in comfort

  • A luxury private tour of Moscow awaits you complete with your own tour guide, private transfers in both cities and VIP entry to all sights
  • Moscow is just a short train ride away from your cruise ship and these days you can travel very comfortably between both cities
  • We will even provide our representative who will travel together with you to ensure your Moscow adventure goes according to plan!

Use your time in Russia wisely

  • Visiting Moscow and St. Petersburg on a single trip is a great way to enhance your once-in-a-lifetime visit to Russia

"I wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU for a most wonderful two days in St. Petersburg. We were all exhausted at the end of the second day…..but it was a good exhaustion, having seen and experienced so much.I also appreciate your thoroughness and patience in working with me to set up the tour. Everything went so smoothly when we arrived. If you should need to calm any nervous cruise ship passengers (as you did me) please feel free to give them my email address."

"Our trip to St. Petersburg was phenomenal! All of this was due to Insider Tours and in particular Natasha. At the end of two days we had been exposed not only to the many historical sights but we learned a lot and we felt as though we had been in the company of real friends."

Terry Gabriel, Canada

"To say the least, AWESOME!!! The tour was informative relaxing and fun! We saw everything we wanted to see in the 2 days and more! In our opinion this is the best way to see St Petersburg and the cost is much better than the ship and you see much more as you are not waiting in lines or taking a horrible bus ride with 50 folks. Recommend Recommend Recommend.”

Jason Ponds, USA
