I did this tour a few hours after I arrived in Moscow on July 30th. It was fabulous. A great experience, showing me sights I wouldnt have otherwise seen, and giving me extremely interesting information. My guide was lovely and friendly, as well as being very knowledgeable. I really highly recommend this tour! It was excellent.

This is a perfect way to get an orientation of the city and at the same time learn about the history of Moscow. Tatiana was energetic, knowledgeable and spoke perfect English. I highly recommend this tour as the first thing you do when you arrive.

Had an amazing experience walking the streets of Moscow with Alina. She is very knowledgeable on details regarding key monuments, structures and historical events in the city. Great conversationalist, kept me engaged the whole time. It was a very fun three hour tour with her, she even offered to guide me on how to take the underground metro back to hotel at the conclusion of our tour, which I liked very much. I highly recommend.

Kate was great! It was Moscow's birthday the day I arrived and Red Square was packed! Kate tried her best in getting us front row for the firework show but they set them off elsewhere in which there was really no way of telling where, but it was a great tour especially when I had just arrived in the country earlier that afternoon!

An amazing experience! Anna collected me from my hotel and spent the next 3 hours showing me all the sights I wanted to see in this amazing city. Her knowledge was outstanding but far more importantly, she was a delight to spend time with. My childhood dream had always been to see St. Basils Cathedral lit up in the evening and so Anna planned our tour so that this was our last stop. I am so glad that I booked the tour and so grateful to Anna for her expertise and kindness.

We changed our Russia plans last minute to add a one day stop in Moscow. Given that you need to get tix for all these things (kremlin,armory, diamonds) and they are sold out well in advance, there was no other way to make all of this happen. This trip was like a magic wand that solved the problem.

I had a nice walking tour with a student to nice spots with good views starting at 4:30 pm and ending at 6:30 because my legs had enough. Even it was raining quite a lot I enjoyed it. Recommend this tour.
