Ms. Newman was impressive, knowledgeable, and caring, Excellent A+!

To whom it may concern: For the Communist Tour on Saturday, July 14, 2018 at 11:00, I encountered Ms. Tanya Newman at the St. Regis Hotel. In her initial explanation, Ms. Newman went to explain Moscow, Russian history including the monarchy, the late 19th, early 20th century, Russian revolution, Lenin, Stalin, the Soviet Union era, and the post Communist era. It was an impressive number of facts that still have an impact in Russia and around the world today. After my history lesson, Ms. Newman went to describe Lubyanskaya building and square with photographs and details. She described the history of the KGB, the statues honoring its prominent figures, the KGB's modus operandi, the number of victims, the old secrets and the lack of transparency until this day. Ms. Newman indicated that the Solovetsky Stone was one of the few monuments dedicated to the victims. After Lubyanskaya building and square, we proceeded to Red Square and entered the Lenin Mausoleum before it closed.

A great way to learn a lot about this amazing city

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.

Very good tour to know the communist history

Will be interesting for those people who would like to know a bit more on the communist history from the point of view of the local. I always wanted to see the Lenin's mausoleum and with Vladimir as a guide, it was great experience! I was not so impressed by Worker and the Farmer statue but I like the metro station, which looked like a museum, and Vladimir told me nice stories about it. I would recommend it for sure!

Anna was informative, interesting, and incredibly nice. Recommend!

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.
