Natalia was our guide on this tour and she was excellent. Her knowledge of the content of the museum was impressive and her English language skills were excellent. She was very accommodating and couldn't have been more helpful. Even though the gallery is huge we did not feel rushed. Very reliable communication in the lead up to the tour and she went out of her way to help organise another tour for us the following day. Thank you Natalia you made the day memorable.

Knowledgeable Guide

Guide arrived on time and took us by metro and a walk to the gallery. He took us though all the eras of pre revolutionary russian art and was very interesting about all of it. Quite passionate about politics! Finished 30 minutes early - it would have been nice to have had used up this time in some of the rooms
