I can only recommend the tour "Moscow Metro & Bunker 42". The agreement to "pick up at the hotel" was a bit ambiguous, but then worked out in the end. The actual guidance was very interesting, the tour guide was very friendly, the German was very good. She answered all our questions with patience and in great detail. It was ultimately a journey through time in two ways. First, to see the stations in their original historical design and then to be more than 60 meters deep underground and to be reminded of the time of the Cold War.

The guide explained more eagerly and deepened my understanding of each place. In addition, I was able to enjoy it without doubling because I could choose a place to go around considering the places I visited so far.

Very good script of the Metro stations. Bunker 42 could be better. The guide Alejandra very efficient, friendly and worked hard to have a good tour.
