I traveled to Saint Petersburg with my family last year and I can say that those people from Insider tour company are real professionals of what they are doing! We were very glad to know that there is a 5 star service in Russia and thanks to Insider tour and specially our guide Marina (she has also funny nick - Peach) we could enjoy our trip without any paper problems. I recommend this company to everybody who wants to save their time and nerves by organizing a good tour in such a beautiful city like Saint Petersburg!

We got lucky and had great weather...it was really a lot for 2 days but worth it. So glad we did this compared to the large group tours from the Cruise ship, totally worth it. Highly recommended. Dimitri was great in helping us make our plans.

We used Insider Tour for a four-day tour of St Petersburg before a cruise. Our guide did a wonderful job, customizing it to our interests, limitations and timetable. It made our Russian visit easy and comfortable.

We visited St. Petersburg in July 2018 as part of a cruise. I chose Insider Tour after researching a number of tour companies on the Cruise boards (e.g. Cruise Critic) and am really glad we did. Booking was easy. There were 3 of us, including my 11 year old daughter. We asked Insider to suggest a 2 day tour, identifying the main things we wanted to see and asking them to suggest others. We adjusted the itinerary a couple of times to suit and nothing was a problem. Visitor tickets were emailed in advance to be used instead of visas. Once we cleared immigration (took almost 2 hrs), the guide and driver were waiting for us. Spotless car. We did a tour of the City, Church of the Spilled Blood, Hermitage & Winter Palace etc and Peterhof and Nevsky Prospect on the second day. We had a fantastic guide, Kate who was great with my daughter, was hugely knowledgeable and went out of her way to accommodate any additional requests. We never had to wait in lines, the car was always ready for us and Kate altered the itinerary to accommodate heavy rain on the first afternoon. It was a superb experience and a great way to maximise the time in St. Petersburg. A much better experience than taking a tour direct from the cruise line. From AIexandra in the office to Kate and our driver, communication was great and I would highly recommend the company. We chose to pay cash on arrival but there are other options for paying in advance.

If you like Northern Europe Saint-Petersburg is a must-see! This city is a cultural capitol of Russia filled with history, museums, churches, entertainment... alone, or a family there will be something to find for anyone... it's a yes, and no question!
