We had a fantastic 2-day tour of Moscow with Nikita this past weekend. Nikita met us at our hotel and took us all over the central historic district of Moscow he also added a few other stops that we were interested in seeing. We did most of our tour walking around Moscow, there was no driver provided, which was what we were looking for , except for the tour of the Moscow Subway. Also given our time constraints on Sunday, he expanded our time on Saturday and shortened our time together on Sunday. He was also able to get us tickets to the armory museum and Kremlin so that we were able to squeeze that in in our short but jam packed visit to Moscow.
Nikita was great very knowledgeable and had wonderful suggestions for places to eat and see outside our tour. I would highly recommend this experience.

A place so rich in history and culture. Daria was an excellent guide, patient and well versed in Russian History. There is so much to see and do. I wish I had given myself more days - two days were rushed, but I enjoyed every minute of it.

It was an unforgettable tour of Moscow. Our two day program was carefully chosen. We discovered old and new Moscow. Our guide Svetlana was extremely knowledgeable about the history, the architecture, the different events and cultures surrounding the foundation and development of Moscow. Additionally, Svetlana very thoughtfully linked historical and religious events to the building of the different monuments.
She was very courteous, helpful and customer oriented. We will ask specially for her when we come back to Moscow. We recommend her to anyone who wishes to visit Moscow.

A private walking tour of Moscow's highlights, truly indicated especially with our Guide Alex, who was extremely dedicated and knowledgeable and took time to cover all what we needed to see in 2 days.
It was a bit tiring with the heat in Moscow at 29*C, but our considerate guide gave us the breaks and time needed.
We strongly recommend this tour and cheers to Alexander Yambars for his good work.

We are a family of 4 that enjoys traveling a lot.

This was our first trip to Russia and Moscow and Viator and Friendly Local Guides did a great job with this tour. Tatiana and Lucy were excellent guides who knew the city very well. Both spoke very fluent English. We particularly enjoyed those little stories and legends about places that we visited. Their suggestions of itineraries, places to eat and where to shop were highly appreciated.

They were really friendly and made the tour very enjoyable!

We were a bit hesitant about visiting Russia, with the political events transpiring around us, but we were immediately put at ease by Anastasia. She was a real honey and tried her best to show us as much of her beloved city as we could take in. We walked about 30 km in the 2 days, but never noticed as we were entranced by the beauty surrounding us. She took us to unforgettable places like St Basil's, the Kremlin with it's magnificant cathedrals. What a surprise! Then the armoury, which was breath-taking. GUM was amazing, around the fantastic Metro stations and eventually to old Arbat street where she steered us away from the normal exorbitantly priced souvenir shops. She arranged restaurants to cater for my wife's gluten and lactose intolerances, which had been a major worry. Our very best thanks to Anastasia. She was amazing and made our trip a trip of a lifetime.

My guides, Julia and Anastasia are both good. I enjoyed their company for the 2 days I spent in Moscow.
I would improve the communication prior to the visit because I replied 4 times to Alina before the date confirming the tickets for Kremlin and Armory but she claimed she didn't receive my replies. Using emails when travelling is not ideal, suggest maybe using WhatApp as a better option.
