The guide Sofia was outstanding! She was friendly, came to pick me up at the hotel, and provided an excellent tour of the area. I enjoyed the historical insights as well as local stories about the main Moscow highlights. I strongly recommend this tour to the visitors in the city, with particular recommendation for the guide Sofia. Thank you for providing me with this unique experience.

We had Sofia as our guide on our Kremlin and Red Square tour. She was excellent. Her knowledge of Russian history was great and she was able to explain everything we had questions about. She was also very patient with us. She was also great with her communication before the tour. Would go on other tours with her and recommend her to other English speaking visitors.

Everything was reaaly good-the guide, the timetable and the service in general. Pick up was a good idea as I don't know the city well. Elena gave many "hints" regarding Moscow and especially the Kremlin. The tour was just 2 hours but it was what I looked for.

Our guide Evgenia was absolutely amazing! She was interesting, extreemly up to date with the russian culture and histore, she was likeable and very sweet.

Great experience with a knowledgeable tour guide. We learned a lot about Russian history and art. And everything on the Red square is beautiful!
