Escorted tour to St Petersburg and Moscow

I would like to spend 6-7 days exploring these two cities. Any recommendations for a good tour company? I usually travel independently and want free time, but I think a group is better for Russia. Thanks.

Why?

PS To clarify, have you arrived at that conclusion after, before or instead of reading all the independent travellers' reports in this forum?

Agree that if you usually prefer to travel independently (as I do!), you should consider this as an option for Russia - particularly for St Petersburg and Moscow which really are not all that difficult to see on a DIY basis. As Marassa mentioned, there are numerous trip reports and lots of general advice on the forum from people who have travelled there independently - browse through the forum or try using the search function to find some recent examples.

Why tie yourself down to a tour if you don't need to do so and like to do your own thing?

when booking a group tour you will normally have free time in the afternoon to explore the sights on your own.
