Super tour with super guide
Mar 2020
In one day we saw whole the city most valuable sites on foot. By car would have taken us more time. Don’t forget the metro tour!!! Impressive.

Great way to see Moscow!
Nov 2019
My tour was conducted by Alex and I can say it was worth every minute of it. And even though an 8 hour tour doesn't do justice to all there is to see in Moscow, Alex helped me figure out what made sense to squeeze into the one day I had for site-seeing on my very short trip to Moscow. He is very knowledgable about the history, traditions, local culture and practical tips for Moscow. Alex has good command over English and could answer all the questions I had. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting for the first time!

Moscow is a very beautiful city and had lot of places to see.
Jul 2019
Moscow is a beautiful city, though it does suffer from the impact of modernisation. We spent 4 days there and found them to be less. I would advise the fellow travellers to engage Private Tour operators to see the city before venturing out on your own. Lot of places to see.

Aug 2019
We would highly recommend this tour, it really helped make the most of the visit, we would have missed so much if we hadn’t done it. Our guide Vasily was hugely informative and very knowledgeable as he pointed out the sights and gave us the relevant context from Russia’s long history. He knew every fact on any topic, there was no question he couldn’t answer! We also were joined by a second guide Igor for the first few of hours. The logistics worked well on a very hot and sunny August day, although the break for lunch was very late.

A fabulous day
Aug 2019 • Family
Our tour guide Luba met us at our hotel and gave us a day to remember. Luba was an absolute gem! Her knowledge of the history and of art was outstanding. Luba went above and beyond she spent extra time with us ensuring we got to see everything. Her English was outstanding she answered all our questions and we really got to experience the whole city and all the sights with an amazing history lesson. I highly recommend this tour and if you can get Luba it will be an extra bonus.
