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!

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!

Really interesting tours where you can see old items and also traditional souvenirs to buy at a real good price much better than Moscow central also the painting of your own doll was amazing. My tour Dalia was a ket factor in making this a real nice tour as she is well informed, has humor, humble and self aware
