About
On this tour we will see all the main must-see sights plus some off-the-beaten-track areas of Moscow. With our degrees in art-history and a significant guiding experience we are sure to know the places and the stories, that even locals may have never heard of. We are also into the food culture of Moscow, so we know the best cafes and restaurants of the city. Some of them we can visit on the tour. And we deliberately avoid touristy restaurants, where locals would never go. "Only genuine experiences" is our motto. Of course, we will recommend you what to do after the tour: best museums, bars, clubs, parks etc. Our priority is the best personalised experience. Every single one. So, be sure, we can customise our tour according to your wishes. We are more than just some tour guides, consider us your friends in a new city:) Please note, that it's a walking tour (+ public transport or taxi). If you would like this tour to be on a car, notify us in advance and we'll organise it.

How to see Moscow through the eyes of a local!
Feb 2020
Where do I start.... Katya was knowledgable, insightful and showed us places that as a tourist we would have missed! Who knew that what appeared to be a small restaurant was actually a beautiful supermarket... yes I know a supermarket... but you have to see it to really appreciate it!
Throughly recommended that anyone taking a tour of Moscow employs Katya!
Thanks again!

On the first day everything was closed because of the new tear but Katya was insightful and managed to show us everything and rearrang the schedule accordingly. Second day the other Katya wasn’t as knowledge but she was good and patient specially during the flea market..

Hello Haleemah! Thank you for your review:) We are glad that you’ve liked the tour. We have already started talking with the second Katya about what could have been the problem on the second day. We always thought of her as of one of the most knowledgeable guides, so your review is a surprise for us:) We won’t leave it unnoticed as our priority is to make every tour exceptionally good — not less. I am glad, that you have liked Moscow and hope you are returning back;) Nikita & team

An amazing and informative tour of Moscow
I can’t imagine a better introduction to Moscow and it’s surrounds than to have a guide such as Katya explain all of the sites as you walk around this vibrant city. The amazing and compelling mix of the old and the new was illustrated to us with insight, knowledge and humour during a day that we won’t forget. The city’s history was also laid out for us in a way that enriched the experience.

We would highly recommend this experience to anyone.

Amazing Moscow Experience
Jul 2019 • Couples
Katya made our trip to Moscow. We were there actually only for an extended week-end. She met us for 2 days of 5 hours each tour. The first day she showed us the "usual sights" - Kremlin, Red Square, St. Basal's etc and we had the BEST lunch, wish I could remember the name of the restaurant because I'd give it a 5 star review too. The second day she took us off the beaten path down into the LOVELY subway system, then walking through the statue park and to the Chocolate museum and up onto a rooftop, all exceptional. She encouraged us to attend a show at the Golden Ring Theatre the first evening, we all were entertained and thrilled. Our last evening she pointed us in the direction of the highest restaurant in Europe on the 84th floor in Moscow City, again just fabulous. Can't thank her enough except to say BOOK A TOUR, you will NOT be disappointed!

Excellent visit to Moscow!
Moscow is a beautiful city and we had a great opportunity to appreciate this with the help of our guides Katya and Luba. Both of them were very well versed with the historical significance of the sites. Katya kept us on comfortable first day schedule. We had in fact a 3 day tour and last 2 days with Luba. She gave us the four of the Kremlin and the Armory and it was amazing to see history of the cathedrals and priceless artifacts housed there. We also got a tour of the metro stations which are also unique. I think if you have 3-4 days in Moscow I’d highly recommend this personalized tour to make the most of your time and get a true appreciation of what the city has to offer. We made great memories from this trip!

Great guide made our visit to Moscow an unforgettable experience
Jul 2019 • Couples
With an abundance of information on the history of the city Kate (Polyakova) gave us a good understanding of this interesting town. She is knowledgeable in history, art, architecture, cultural life and a source of interesting anecdotes and little known facts. When we visited the museum of cosmonautics on the second day, she proved an expert on that domain as well.

The extensive tour of the metro system was a very worthwhile experience thanks to all the details that Kate pointed out. Without her we would have missed most of them.

Wherever we went, she came well prepared and always had additional pictures and photographs on her smartphone allowing us to compare current views with the historical pictures.

Oh and by the way, she speaks English perfectly.
