  • The tour was fantastic. The tour guide, Irina, was knowledgeable and very energetic. She brought the tour to life with not only the history of our stops but also with personal stories. We had 24 people in our group and Irina kept everyone engaged and entertained. Our tour guide was able to answer all questions from the group. We all had a great time. I would, without hesitation, recommend this tour to anyone interested in learning about Moscow.

  • amazing

  • This is great introduction to Red Square and the surrounding area. Our guide met us in our hotel on time and led us through the magestic underground stations to Red Square. Her knowledge was excellent and she gave us an insiders view to all the local sights. She also gave us tips on other things to do, where to shop and when we got back to our hotel even took us to places nearby where we could get authentic Russian food. A great tour and highly recommended.

  • Great guide - I would have given this five stars, but the Bolshoi was canceled :
