About
Muscovites believe that the underground system here is  the best in the world. It is by far the most convenient public transport in Moscow, which also looks like an extravagant museum. The stations feature the masterpieces of Russia’s great sculptors, painters and artisans. On this  1.5 hour tour you will see  jaw-dropping frescoes, sculptures, chandeliers and stained glass mosaics. We will show you the most beautiful stations of the underground as well as introduce you to the history and modern life of the most popular transport in Moscow.

What to expect
  • Meet our guide at Theatre Square at 3pm and explore the very best of Moscow underground. Big groups (10+) are provided with radio guides. This tour’s duration is 90 minutes. The metro ticket is included in the price of the tour, but the guide still explains how and where to get tickets, what the fares are.  After a short introduction to the busiest metro in Europe you will see the first line of Moscow Metro, that was open in 1935. Moving on a train from station to station, we get off at the award winning platforms of 1930s. Apart from seeing the most beautiful stations and taking photos, tourists will learn the history of Russia’s first metro system, the ideology behind the design and the modern tendencies in the development of the metro. The architectural styles vary from art deco to neoclassicism as we switch the lines. The group sees the largest and most oppulent stations of the Circle Line, decorated with mosaics, statues, stained glass. We speak about the metro during the years of the  Second World war, when it was used as bomb shelter by thousands of Muscovites. The tour finishes at Ploshad Revolutsii station, just across the street from where the tour started.

Excellent, Informative Tour
We thoroughly enjoyed your Metro tour this week. It was very well organized to make sure we stayed together and could all hear your presentations.
But we especially appreciated all the details of Soviet and Russian history you provided. One could simply appreciate the artwork and architecture in the Metro but you did a wonderful job of explaining what the artwork was intended to represent. We valued your explanations about artwork that was modified by Khrushchev to downplay references to Stalin. Very interesting.

Informative Metro Tour but poorly organized
Jun 2019 • Friends
I took the metro tour with MoscowMe on June 10. The metro tour was very informative. I would have given the tour a 5-star review but since MoscowMe overbooked this metro tour on June 10 but failed to provide sufficient number of headsets so a few people from the group was asked to volunteer their headsets. Also, I think the guide should be affirmative about starting the tour on-time. If people are late for more than 10 mins, the guide should not let these people hold up the entire group from starting the tour. Every attendant should be punctual so the tour can start on time.

I was born in Moscow, but have learnt there are many things that I didn’t know! I have visited Metro and City tour wish Sasha and it was very interesting. He is a great guide, these tours will be perfect for anyone who wants an insight to Russian history.
I also decided to expand my knowledge about communism and went on another tour - Back to Ussr with Ksenia. Awesome tour, awesome guide. Guys, you are doing a great job! Thank you!

Magnificent Metro station tour
Jun 2018 • Friends
Our group of 16 met Xenia at the first metro station and immediately developed a rapport with her. As a group of Americans visiting Russia for the first time, she made us feel very welcomed and was very professional. She was on time and supplied us with headsets for the station tour because the trains are very loud and talking above the noise would have been impossible.

We visited 8 stations to look at the spectacular decor which could have been in a museum. The chandeliers, mosaics, porcelain, etc. were gorgeous. We have seen nothing like that in the USA. We were escorted on and off the trains effortlessly and guided through beautiful, clean stations. The history lesson alone was well worth the tour.

I would highly recommend Xenia and this tour.

The metro tour is a MUST for your Moscow visit
May 2018 • Couples
We were on the fence about booking this tour, as we weren't sure of the value, and our local contacts were unsure as well. But you now what, when in Rome! Right?

And we're very glad we jumped on this! The stations tell a story that goes missed even by locals, and it's a phenomenal one. This experience was made even better by our amazing tour guide. She told the story well and was equipped with many historical images for comparison. She was very engaging, and a delight to converse with throughout the tour and train rides. She's featured in many of the review images on this page, so if she's your guide, you're in for a treat!
