This was my 7th visit to Moscow, and probably my last one. I sought a private guide because a general group tour would have told me what I already knew. My guide turned out to be perfect. She listened to my goals. It also turned out that she had done research on me, even watching a You Tube recording of one my talks. Her background matched well with mine. She had studied and worked in journalism. An intern, who also had studied journalism, joined us. My guide concentrated on showing me things that had changed in recent years. Several hours into the tour, we stopped for drinks, and spent almost all the rest of the time talking. Ultimately I appreciated the conversation the most. But I have no doubt that if we had focused on sights the guide would have done a superb job. I ended the tour after 7 hours because I was tired and it had gotten dark. The guide was concerned that I wasn't getting my money's worth by cutting off an hour. For me, the bottom line is that I had a great experience....The only challenge I faced is that I wasn't staying in a central hotel, so arranging a meeting place was difficult, especially because my mobile phone isn't equipped for international service.

Our guide, Lyia was amazing. It was our first day in Russia so she was able to provide us valuable information on everything about being in this country with a completely different alphabet and difficult language. But mostly provide us with the basics for getting around, understanding local customs, and tips on where to go - especially how to avoid long lines. We enjoyed our time with her very much! A+ experience.

We did an 8 hour private tour with LENA and it was the highlight of our trip to Russia on a Viking River Cruise. We took the metro and met Lena in central city. She spoke excellent English with no accent and was so knowledgeable. Wish we had spent all our touring days with her. She was very flexible and took us to a local restaurant for lunch where she continued to give us information and answer questions. She would have showed us even more but we needed to get to the ship since it was our last day. She took us to some amazing places we hadn't even heard of in any literature. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

This tour was perfect for exploring the city and understanding the history, culture and architecture of Moscow. Luba was so engaging, knowledgeable and friendly. She also spoke perfect English and provided excellent insight about the local must-see sights. She made sure I saw it all in a day. Wear comfortable shoes as you will see much along the way!

I didn't know what to expect when I signed up for this tour. Tanya, our tour guide, spoke great English and had great passion for the city and its incredible history. She brought historical material to show us about the sights we saw so we got an appreciation of events past. She also took us to local spots, affordable stores where we purchased souvenirs, and cool lunch and snack places. Tanya covered all of the sights on foot and metro despite the snowy weather, so we really experienced the city the way the locals do it. What a fantastic find! I would definitely recommend to anyone who want to tour this amazing city in a short amount of time.

Highly recommend this tour! Tanya our guide spoke perfect English and was very knowledgeable about the city and it’s history. She showed us some of the most beautiful metro stops and all of the main attractions around the city, as well as some local spots we wouldn’t have known about otherwise.

Kids were bored, we were bored, we didn’t see anything! Total waste of money! No idea how they got high rating! Do not ever book! ! We had 8 adults and 10 kids who knew more then the guide!
