Our guide, Valentina, was knowledgable, funny, intelligent and accommodating. The Diamond fund was closed but we enjoyed our tour of the Armory, Red Square and the Kremlin. I couldn't have asked for a nicer experience. Thank you Valentina!

Had a wonderful tour of the above and on all levels it exceeded our expectations. Ekaterina was our guide...she was knowledgeable, fun and exercised skill in getting into places that were less busy at the time. We had a brilliant day, thanks to Ekaterina. Viator was easy to book on line and hassle free, will certainly use again!

Choosing a private tour was a great idea. Our guide Ekaterina not only gave us a brilliant tour with lots of information about the Kremlin and Russian history, but also chatted about living in Moscow.

For my husband and son and I, we felt like we were visiting with a friend and really enjoyed a marvellous time - even though it rained the whole time.

As Scots, the rain wasn’t a problem and the friendly, helpful personality of Ekaterina made us feel welcome and at home.

Excellent job Ekaterina !

A truly outstanding tour with a consummate professional guide who was knowledgeable, courteous and made this the highlight of our visit to Moscow!! Oleg met us at the hotel and we quickly bonded while headed to the Metro. His energy, enthusiasm and love for his country was most evident and he shared interesting facts about everything we saw. We were met by someone near the ticket office who had already purchased our tickets which saved considerable time. We walked through Cathedral Square and visited several churches then headed to the Armory/ Treasury where Oleg ensured we saw every hall. He pointed out the highlights and while not rushing us through the exhibits. This personal tour by Oleg sure beat the herd mentality of a large group. We enjoyed Red Square, Alexandria's Garden and the Kremlin and gained an appreciation for the country, its history and culture as a direct result of Oleg's knowledge. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone and hopefully who will be blessed to have Oleg as your guide.

Oleg was an excellent guide, friendly, easy to understand and knowledgeable. He took care to cater to our wishes (as we had been to the Kremlin previously but missed the armory on that occasion). We saw all the highlight of the Kremlin, and we (couple) were very satisfied with what we saw in the time available. He conducted the tour at our pace, and went out of his way to enhance our visit as much as possible. We enjoyed very much lunch with Oleg and he even helped us afterwards to locate a suitable store for some shopping to take home to friends. Highly recommended tour and guide. Thanks!

Oleg was fantastic. We moved at a great pace that he adjusted to my wants, and we covered an amazing amount of the city. Not only knowledgeable about the sites, he also showed me local spots that I would have never found on my own. He stayed in touch throughout my entire time in Russia and made sure I enjoyed the entire trip, not just my tour.

As for the tour, the expedited access to sites is great, and I had a 1:1 tour, which can't be more personalized. Cannot recommend this tour highly enough. Made me feel so welcome and local to the city.

Great for skipping the lines! However, When you book a tour, you expect a guide with some experience and knowledge to make an experience of the visit beyond reading the signs.

The visit of Diamond Fund was included in our voucher, bit the guide didn't have the tickets since her russian agency. She gave us money to buy the tickets and so we have had to visit the DF by ourself in a different day. In fact to buy tickets and go to visit DF on same 24th July could spend about 1/1,5 hour since the long cue
