It was a wonderful experience. Our Guide was very knowledgeable and patient with us. She showed us the City and brought us to a few iconic museums. I recommend this tour to anyone who wants to learn about the Russian culture.

Kathryn, our guide had extensive knowledge of all the sites, especially the castles and Hermitage. We were surprised by the beauty of St. Petersburg subway stations. The driver dropped us close to the attractions, adding to our sightseeing time and enjoyment. Highly recommend.

If you book an evening activity through them, do they provide the transport from and to the cruise ship? (Example: ballet show). Is it part of the fee.

HI Rachel, I am booking with Insider Tours for a trip in May. I am planning the Grand Slalom with them in St. Petersburg. I was wondering which tour you took? How much walking was involved? I know they are long days 9-10 hrs but how much of that is riding vs walking? Thanks
