A great and informative tour from the moment the friendly guide picked me up at the hotel. He had lots to tell about Moscow and the sights - a great insight into life. As there is not much explanation in English at the Space Museum, it was great to have someone to show me around. A local is always the way to go! Highly recommend!

I have chosen this trip as I like cosmology and wanted to know about Russia's achievements in this segment. My guide Oleg was very knowledgeable and really interested to share as much info as possible. It was really a nice trip and you could expect to see some real and jaw-dropping pieces of used space-ships , broken part of some asteroid preserved there. Also can try space-food if you want.

Thanks Oleg and team.
