What people are saying about Eliseevsky
We loved this tour. We enjoyed being told about the recent history of Moscow by a local guide. Elena described events in the communist history very well, and her description of these events was made even more interesting with the anecdotes she told about specific people's experiences. She took us to places that we simply could not have found on our own without doing a lot of research. We not only learned a lot but it helped us to become familiar with the city centre and so I think it’s a great tour to do early on in your visit.
Rodolfo is one of those tour gides that is passionate about history and enjoy sharing his knowledge! He is not the typical guide that just wants the tips! That being said, he showed us amazing points in the city, he made it fun and entertaining! He is from Venezuela so his Spanish is clear and perfect! He showed us the best point to take pics, give local recommendations and even thaught us some russian! The tour was over and he even walked us a little bit more to a beautiful view! He even waited until everyone got a taxi. What an amazing guy! As I mentioned in another review, company oberbooked tickets and started tours almost an hour late. It was the world cup and we were al tired and moody, but Rodolfo’s energy is contagious! During the tour we bumped into people who took the that mornig and they keep cheering Rodolfo and saying he was the best! Over 12 hrs later from his firs tour and this guy was still giving us the best tour we took in Moscow! We learned a lot and took nice pics!
Elena had the perfect level of knowledge and experience for the tour. Elena brought photos of the buildings in history and gave local knowledge about her family and events that made the tour come to life. thank you
We really loved the tour! While giving information on history and events, our guide also told us about her and her family's experiences and thoughts of the communist era. She was very informative and enthusiastic. It was a joy. (I'm not sure about our guide's name, I think it was Marina.) We were really happy with the tours we booked with the Free Moscow Tour.
We learned new and interesting facts from our guide, who speaks excellent and well understandable English
