We had a Spanish guide named Johana. She was amazing! She was well informed, knowledgeable, kind, and very patient for our large group of 9, including children. I highly recommend this tour. We got to see a lot of the Kremlin and we got to explore the main attractions of Moscow. We at first weren’t sure if we should have contracted a separate guide to tour the Moscow metro but with this tour is was enough! Everyone had earphones and she talked to us through that which was key! This way we could all hear her and she didn’t have to scream through the crowds of people. The only thing I would suggest is for the company to find another meeting point because it was hard for us to find it and we had to call the company and figure out somewhere else to meet. Besides that everything else was great!

2nd part Metro tour was great!

The information that no German gide was available and that we would be picked up directly from the hotel the day before was great. The first part of the tour with the various points (7 sisters, basilica, etc.) was not so good, we would have found out on our own. But driving a car from the Soviet era made a lot of competition. The tour in the metro stations was very exciting and entertaining. Our guide Ilja enriched this with a lot of joy and background information. It was great including the snack at the end. Thanks!

Nice walking tour

The walking tour helped us to explore the main attractions in Moscow within 4 hours, our guide was a young gentleman, tried to show us around, I can’t say that they have the opportunity to skip the queue as advertised, it was crowded everywhere and had to be tricky to get into the queue when entering the Kremlin,

Excellent tour

The guide was so knowledgeable. The tour was excellent. It covered the most important attractions in few hours and gave a great insight of Moscow and Russia’s history.
