    Some great quirky bits of Moscow, very flexible on itinerary too. Excellent background stories and historical facts too.

    We unfortunately did not do this tour as there was a mix up in the times. This is what happens when you deal with two different tour operators, and not centrally controlled. Took a Hop on Hop off Red bus tour instead.

    Anna was our tour guide. She was very nice and speaks very good English. We had a great time! Also, the value is excellent. Highly recommended. We learned a lot about Moscow and saw some excellent sights in a fun and efficient manner.

    Knowledgeable once arrived at location. However, between locations there was total silence, no interaction with us at all, unless speaking facts at location. Picked up on time and good command of English language.

    Gelena is a fun tour guide who will talk with you for any topics.

    My husband and I requested to peruse the VDNKh and Muzeon Art Park...Absolutely wonderful. We had Kate who filled our minds with the wonder of Moscow and the history as well as much of the architecture in passing! Thorough from beginning to end. While our driver was safe and competent getting us through the city. I was actually depressed when our tour ended but so satisfying to have incredible visuals along with a highly knowledgeable and charming lady. Truly our favorite time there. Thank you Kate and Viator!

    We arranged this tour at the start of our first day in Moscow to get an overview of the city. Good driver and a good knowledgeable tour guide. We made six scheduled stops a specific points of interest and we had driver stop and several additional areas we wanted to see.

    Great tour for anyone who wants a fully customised tour of Moscow. I requested to see specific landmarks and metro stations and the organiser was very accommodating. I was whisked in a nice and large car between the hotspots and my guide Victoria was very enthusiastic to show me all amazing buildings and squares I wanted to see. She was very informative and always happy to follow my preferred pace of the tour. Highly recommended.
