Use your time in Russia wisely

"We would like to thank you for all your hard work in arranging our tour of St Petersburg. We all had a fantastic and fascinating time in your wonderful city and Irena and Andrew were both wonderful people and a pleasure to spend two days with. We are all very pleased we booked our tour with your company and not with the cruise ship and would certainly book any tours with you again should we be so lucky as to return to St Petersburg."

Anne Marie O’Donnell, Great Britain

"Let me say that I and my two friends all enjoyed our visit to St. Petersburg. Scheduling a private tour with Insider made a real positive difference in our visit there. We felt like there was never a wasted moment. When other cruise passengers heard about all we accomplished in our two day visit, they were sorry they hadn't gone with us."

Sanda Bailey, USA

"We would like to express our gratitude for the excellent travel arrangements you put in place for us. Sasha our tour guide and David our driver were both excellent ambassadors for your own organization and your City, and Sasha`s mastery of Russian history was something to admire. Our group of 8 spent two of the most interesting and enjoyable days of our quite wide travels and in thanking all of you we would also like to commend you to any Australians who may choose your services in St Petersburg."

John YS Mair, Australia

"It was a terrific two days thanks to your very professional staff. Your flexibility in shaping the trip to add some items of interest to us was one more reason why a personally established guided tour is superior to a cruise ship package. Considering that the price was comparable to what would have paid for 3 people for a group of standard cruise line excursions it was well worth the price."
