If you wish, choose to focus on themes like landscapes, architectural detail, local life, or even rooftop scenes. Your shoot ends with some photos at leafy Gorky Park and a hotel drop-off. You will then receive a set of beautifully finished photos, including 10 professionally edited shots — all precious keepsakes of your time in Russia’s capital.

Amazing experience - highly recommend
Sep 2021
I chose this tour cause I was on a solo trip and had nobody to take my pictures, however the pictures taken by Vasily were so professional and amazing. We walked to all of these places, he made metro rides so easy and understandable and would also give me constant posing ideas. He told me about the places and was indeed very friendly and punctual. He also dropped me back and went out of his way to help me buy a band aid as I was struggling with the language. Lastly, the edited pictures were sent to me by Alina who was so sweet. Her email made me smile, I saved her email. If you want a friendly experience and do not want to feel like a tourist, you should go for this tour.

Had a great time exploring the city and getting myself clicked in the process. My guide was courteous, fun and helpful.
In my opinion though, 3 hours is really not enough as for me it was a walking tour.

Leuke fototour met vriendelijke fotografe, heel mooie foto's als resultaat!
Dec 2018 • Couples
We booked this tour because we don't usually take pictures of our travels, and this time we definitely wanted to have a nice souvenir of Moscow.
Our guide Kate picked us up at our hotel at 11 AM sharp. She immediately took us to a less touristic spot close to our hotel where she took our first pictures in an idyllic scenery. She put us at ease, as we are not used to pose in front of a camera. My boyfriend in particular didn't really feel comfortable, but Kate gave us directions on what to do and how to pose for a nice result.
We saw the most touristic spots of Moscow with her, which we liked a lot. She also told us interesting info about all the spots we came across.
We got the first pictures quite fast, but because of my email account (my server blocked the mail address) I didn't receive the rest of them. As soon as I contacted the organization about it, they tried everything asap to make sure we would receive them.
We had a great experience with Kate and are so pleased with the results. We definitely recommend this tour for a nice memory of Moscow.

Nastya took me around moscow for a few hours and shared with me lots of interesting facts about her city. she was extremely knowledgeable and passionate! She also took the initiative to snap many pictures of me along the way. It was really nice to see moscow through her eyes and lens. I strongly recommend this! Thanks so much for a lovely morning Nastya!

Super friendly and accommodating
Nov 2017
Firstly, I was half hour late to my appointment. After tracking down the guide, Anastasia, they agreed to keep my appointment. The photographer was great and super knowledgeable. The whole team was very kind and easy to work with. As I do not speak Russian, it was very helpful that both management and the guide spoke impeccable English.
