    Had an amazing experience walking the streets of Moscow with Alina. She is very knowledgeable on details regarding key monuments, structures and historical events in the city. Great conversationalist, kept me engaged the whole time. It was a very fun three hour tour with her, she even offered to guide me on how to take the underground metro back to hotel at the conclusion of our tour, which I liked very much. I highly recommend.

    Kate was great! It was Moscow's birthday the day I arrived and Red Square was packed! Kate tried her best in getting us front row for the firework show but they set them off elsewhere in which there was really no way of telling where, but it was a great tour especially when I had just arrived in the country earlier that afternoon!

  • 18-Aug-2017

    An amazing experience! Anna collected me from my hotel and spent the next 3 hours showing me all the sights I wanted to see in this amazing city. Her knowledge was outstanding but far more importantly, she was a delight to spend time with. My childhood dream had always been to see St. Basils Cathedral lit up in the evening and so Anna planned our tour so that this was our last stop. I am so glad that I booked the tour and so grateful to Anna for her expertise and kindness.
