Daria was wonderful. She was very friendly and knowledgeable. We saw many of the main cultural sights. And she introduced me to the wonders of the Moscow underground. I had no idea. I'm grateful she included it in our tour.

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.

We booked this tour because we had a 13-hour layover at Sheremetyevo Airport, and we were not disappointed. Our guide, Katya, was incredibly knowledgeable and personable. When we met up, she listened to our preferences and built a customized tour based upon what we told her. She also gave us all kinds of extra advice and walked us through various things, such as where to store our bags during the tour, the timing of our return to the airport, and the best way to get back to the airport. She answered all of our questions and waited patiently while we did photography and took time to view the various sites. Our group was thrilled with our tour and felt like we were able to maximize our short time in this beautiful city thanks to Katya. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Moscow as a fine introduction to this amazing city!

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.

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.

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.
