Nikita was a super friendly and easy-going tour guide for our Moscow trip. Despite the short hours we had, Nikita was able to fill us with the main location history and information that helped us to know the city of Moscow a lot better. Considering the fact that our visit period was over Christmas time, there were road blocks around Red Square main areas, which might be a little inconvenient to commute from one point to the other. Thanks to Nikita, who guided us through short cuts and routes that required minimal detours while showing us the main key visit points. The tour was very enjoyable as Nikita was able to answer most of our questions, will highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a good tour guide in the city

My trip was a business trip and there was no time during the work week to visit or see any of Moscow. To that end, I booked a City Tour to maximize my last full day in Moscow. I thought this tour was a group tour. Imagine my surprise when the guide, Nikita, met me in the reception area of my hotel and told me this was a one-on-one "private" tour. He asked me what I wanted to see and I told him he knew the city better than I and to go where he thought I might like seeing. It was a cool but beautiful morning and we visited a Harvest Festival in Red Square where I got to try a local dish and a hot drink which reminded me of "Russian Tea" that I had remembered from my youth. In the afternoon, it started to rain so he gave me a choice as to where to go next. There is a separate tour of the Moscow Metro Stations so I chose that. Each station had different architecture and mosaics, paintings, statues etc and each station was pristine, unlike some metros that I have used in the past. You could literally spend a day just visiting different stations, with some being named after Russian cities and the decor reflected that. Again, I highly recommend anyone booking this tour and to ask for Nikita.
