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!

Yesterday my tour with Alex had. It was just great I saw so much of Moscow, we took a lot of photos and in the Soviet bus there was also delicious champagne ... What more could you ask for! I can only say: Absolutely recommendable. Thanks to Alex

The tour was very informative and you get a good overview of the city. What I found curious was that it was carried out even though I was the only participant. Kudos to both of my guides and thank you very much!

Excellent ride, the Soviet truck is too much fun. Excellent guide, Tim is very nice as well as super friendly and has a very good story. Highly recommended.

A very good tour to see the main points of Moscow.
