  • The trip was wonderful. The guide was very friendly and professional. In short you get what you paid for.

  • A relaxing way to see Moscow sights. A pleasant tour made all the better by my awesome guide Gelya who was a constant source of interesting facts and expert at pointing out sights of interest I'll never forget the 'Golden Brains' building. Unfortunately the mango smoothie at Gorky Park was mixed with milk but with our abundance of cheap mangoes during the summer in Brisbane maybe we will get a chance to share one there one day. Thanks again for helping me fall in love with Moscow

  • We wanted to see Moscow from the river and experience cruising on frozen water.
    The boat cruised along the Moskva River was very relaxing and we had an unobstructed views of several main tourist attraction sites without walking. We had coffee and snacks on board while enjoying the view of the Kremlin which is the UNESCO-listed fortress comprising of the palaces, the cathedrals, and the official residence of the Russian President. We passed by several bridges, the infamous Peter the Great statue, Luzhniki Stadium, where the World Cup finals will be played in 2018 and the Gorky Park. We skipped walking at Gorky park as the temperature dipped to -18 deg C that evening and weather was too cold. Our guide, Daria, phoned a day before the tour to informed that tour was postponed to 2pm instead of 10am. Daria fetched us from our hotel in a car. After the tour, we wanted to go to Arbat Street for dinner on our own but she insisted to send us in a car straight there. She was pleasant and friendly.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Our tour was really smiley and positive. We liked her a lot. I think she was a little bit nervous though and she didn't speak a lot. Also we expected a little bit longer tour - like 3 hours and the trip on the boat was just an hour. Although - it was amazing, the views were great, we did amazing pictures, she took us from the hotel, she took us after the river to a Gorky Park which we love so it's 50/50. You can try it if you have time.
