The tour was thorough and insightful. Katya was excellent.

Our guide Irina was very kind and shared with us many details of the history of the Moscow metro line and showed us all the beautifully decorated stations. The only downside is the noise of the metro carriages, that makes quite difficult to follow the storyline.

Katya was brilliant - knowledgeable and friendly

This was a real eye-opener of a tour. Perfect length at 90 minutes to see 10 of the best stations. Katya is fluent in English and generous with her knowledge and tips for tourists. She also speaks Spanish.
