Our guide, Ekaterina from Walks with Folks was great. She was very knowledgeable about the history of the stations. She flexed the tour to fit our plans to visit the Cosmonaut museum afterwards instead of going back to our hotel. I wish I had done the tour earlier in the week as she taught us how easy it is to use the metro. She didn't rush us at all. We had some glitches before the tour with communication. Polina did not receive the responses to her emails from me regarding the name and address of the hotel. Since they had my cell number it was no problem, though. This tour is a great way to make sure you have the opportunity to see some of the most stunning stations and a great way to orient yourself with the Metro system.
Our guide Katja picked us up in our hotel and we started the tour at lubyanka station. Passing the KGB building she told us about that period in time when many people were imprisoned and killed by the gouvernement. Katja told us a lot about Russian history and showed us many many beautiful stations. She really knows all the facts and figures and we got a lovely souvenir from Moscow metro. Thank you Katja for a great underground tour, we enjoyed it from the start till the end.
Good service! Igor, our driver, very polite and helpful, spoke good English. He also helped us with luggage! I've heard from my friends that taxi drivers in Moscow cheat their clients. In this case the price for minivan was fixed, so it was really good Worth it!
The metro stations in Russia have been created as exceptional facilities for the masses, with unique theme and decorations. They reflect the country's history very effectively. A must see!
Kate our guide picked us up from our hotel and took us to different metro stations, explaining the history at each one. It was a really informative tour and Kate was helpful and friendly.
