We spent 2 action packed days in St. Petersburg & saw all the major sites. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable & did an awesome job of getting us to the must see sights BEFORE the big bus groups arrived, this made for a very pleasant experience. Our trip to Moscow was pleasant, well worth the early morning departure and two... More

Insider Tours organised 2 days of tours for us in October 2016. They were excellent, efficient and well organised. I would recommend them.

It's absolutely worth doing the private tour of the city. Our guide got us in everywhere, bypassed lines, answered our specific questions and didn't let other large tour groups get in our way. Get the most out of your two days and even more out of your money. Incredible trip.

We travelled to St Petersburg on a cruise ship and had 2 days in this city. We wanted to have a small group tour that not only took us to the main sights, but also allowed us to experience a little bit of the lifestyle in St Petersburg. We were looking for getting a taste of what it would be... More

We've been on many private tours before but nothing beats this, Simple, helpful communication before arrival off Cruise Ship. Can it get easier. Yes it can. Our 2 day visit to St Petersburg was simply awesome. Our driver got us through the traffic using back streets as required and we arrived in plenty of time for each stop (of many).... More

Insider Tours was extremely helpful in customizing our "Roll Like a Russian" 3 day private tour in Sept 2017, so that my husband and I could see and do everything we wanted in St. Petersburg.
