Our guide was Alex and he was fantastic.
The tour covered a lot of ground both physically and knowledge of Moscow sites and history.
We stopped for lunch each day at a different café and sampled Russian food and drink.
The tour is catered for you. Should you wish to see something or a site Alex would do his best to accommodate the request. Navigating the Moscow subway stations was made easy with Alex leading the way. This tour is great value for money!

Nikita was a very good guide. It was a sensation of being guided and acompanied but not feeling overwhelmed or having to fill every moment with chatter. Very comfortable, informative and complete. Saw many things I would not have seen on a masive tour.

This was a truly great tour. Alex was a very knowledgeable and friendly tour guide with extremely good English. He tailored the tour to suit our particular interests and made very good suggestions to cater for these.He knew of some friendly good quality and well priced lunch venues and happily chatted about life in Russia. Overall top quality tour and guide.

I was very excited for my trip to Russia and wanted to do a multi-day overview of Moscow to start to get a feel for the city before I ventured off on my own. I found a great, 3-day tour of Moscow on Viator. I really lucked out with my guide, Alina. She was kind, responsive, and had an exhaustive knowledge of Moscow and its many sites. Alina was extremely flexible allowing me to set my own pace and go wherever and whenever I wanted to go. I almost hate writing this review because I want to keep her all to myself. Alinas infectious good humor makes her a delightful touring companion, not just a guide. When I return to Moscow, Alina will be the only guide I seek. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Alina, you made my trip!! You are the best!!!

A terrific 3 days, certainly not the cheapest way to see Moscow but, the girls are great, very knowledgeable and helpful.

our tour guide was very nice and helpful. The tour was comprehensive and covered things we expected to see plus some hidden gems we would have otherwise missed. Katya also organised the tour to save us money by visiting attractions at the time of day when they were free to enter.
I would have liked a little more in depth historical background, though Katya answered all our questions frankly and honestly.
One thing that needs to be made much clearer in the trip information is that you are expected to pay for the guide to enter the museums and for their lunch too. We expected to cover our own costs but not the guides . don't think this is normal and so it needs to be very clear.

Walking about Moscow with English speaking local guides Julia, Kateya and Elena (3 days) turned out to be a great way to take in the sights and get to know the city on our first visit. They were professional and always on time. Their help during meals enabled us to enjoy some local cuisine.

No car afforded for tour, way too much walking, tour guide was late twice, tour guide had us pay for his lunch, and tour guide left my wife and I stranded at the Cosmonaut Museum (where we had to ask for help in getting a taxi back to the hotel).

Our guide was friendly but didn't understand our needs. We asked her several times to stop telling details about paintings, buildings etc and show more about Moskou, how they live, where interesting places where, interesting streets, shops etc. She kept on telling to much details about the history and wasn't flexible at all. She didn't listen to our wishes. We regret that we have paid so much money and only had three days of irritation. She was not at all suitable to be a guide.
