Excellent guide... knowledgeable, well-spoken, engaging, all the things you would want out of a guide for such a major collection of Moscow sites. Was always evaluating to make sure we were seeing things we wanted to see and was willing to go into more or less detail depending on how interested we were. Was also great to get such a frank and nuanced view on Russian history from a Russian themselves.

An enriching experience, the guide will talk to you about history, architecture, iconography and may also evoke interesting anecdotes. Dress accordingly a good part of the visit is outside
