The tour was really a lot of fun! The ride on the bus was awesome. Something you must have just joined times. Our guide was really great. He explained everything well and answered all our questions. And Moscow at night is also something very special. The stops we got off were also very well chosen. There was a mega view of the city. And the mood in the bus was very pleasant with a great music selection! The tour was a lot of fun. We could get to know Moscow from a completely different side. Privately we would probably never have come to these corners of Moscow. I would recommend this tour to anyone!

Yesterday my tour with Alex had. It was just great I saw so much of Moscow, we took a lot of photos and in the Soviet bus there was also delicious champagne ... What more could you ask for! I can only say: Absolutely recommendable. Thanks to Alex

The tour was very informative and you get a good overview of the city. What I found curious was that it was carried out even though I was the only participant. Kudos to both of my guides and thank you very much!
