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.
The Communist tour was our first activity of our 5-day stay in Moscow. It was a great way to see a lot of the city, get our bearings, and learn a great deal about an important piece of Soviet history. Anna our guide had tons of information and was happy to answer all of our questions. I would highly recommend this tour to gain insight into this complex and beautiful city.
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.
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 learned new and interesting facts from our guide, who speaks excellent and well understandable English
