Really interesting tour with a local guide

We really enjoyed this tour. It was very informative and took us to places we might not have found on our own. We learned a lot from Andrew and we enjoyed hearing about the history of the Peter the Great Monument and also about some of the statues in the sculpture garden. Recommend highly.

Andrew was a great guide and made the tour so enjoyable. The tour was full of details about Russian history and many landmarks and monuments. At the end, I was able to get back to my hotel with his help on the metro. Moscow by night is totally different and so amazing.

Very good private tour!

Maria was an amazing attentive guide who brought us on a personalised walking tour through a few key areas in Moscow. It was a wonderful afternoon spent! Also many thanks to Artem from the company who also helped with the arrangements beforehand.
