Vasily was an excellent tour guide, helpfully putting together a plan for the day based on my travel schedule and must see locations. He was full of interesting information about the many wonderful things to see in Moscow and helped make good use of time by waiting in line for venue tickets while I explored close by sites. I definitely recommend visiting Moscow and Vasily as your guide!
Our guide Marcia was excellent. We discussed what we want to see first thing in the morning and set out for our walk about.
Katya texted me to say what time and where she would meet us. Super nice person who made suggestions to where we should go and what she thought we would enjoy. It was a walking tour but I had to cheat at the end and get an Uber ! But overall well worth it. Thank you.
Masha was perfectly helpful and was able to adapt well to our needs. She was quite informative but was able to have a few laughs with us also
My guide, Polina, did a great job of showing me the city of Moscow. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and seeing the architectural details of the city's subway system. Using the subway is difficult for westerners with the Cyrillic alphabet difficult to decipher. I felt I had a really unique experience and that the tour was worth what I paid.
Luba, our guide was fantastic. She was very informative. She truly enriched our experience with her thorough and knowledgable explanation. Highly recommend her
Very young boy - highly energetic and enthusiastic to cover maximum number of important places within the 8 hours of walking tour.
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!
