Katya (Ekaterina) was great to have as our tour guide. She was very pleasant, kind and took a personal interest in my (elderly) mothers well being. Her english language skills are excellent. The tour was very enjoyable and we saw some amazing things. The museum was really good with lots of space history and exhibits. The VDNKh was a very pleasant surprise - totally unexpected and very pretty with all the Christmas decorations. Katya was very knowledgeable about all the pavilions and their history as well as Russian history in general. Thanks to Katya we had a really good day and can't thank you enough.
We got lost on the way to the meeting point but our guide waited for us which was much appreciated. We were the only people on the tour so he was able to tailor it to suit our needs. It was very useful having someone to explain the details in the Lenin mausoleum and the metro station, and to give us a potted history of communist Russia.
Elena was amazing! She was really interesting and made the experience so enjoyable. She didn’t rush anything even though we were over the allotted 4 hours by 30 minutes as I wanted to grab food and drinks along the way. Elena just wanted to make sure we saw everything we could whilst in Moscow.
The monastery and banya trip were both excellent. The activities itself felt very interesting and made Russian culture a bit closer to us. It was a pleasure to be guided by Timur and Anton - excellent guides and lovely, warm and friendly people. Well recommended!
Wonderful experience of modern histories and current culture made fabulous by a superb knowledgable guide
