What people are saying about Moscow

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.

Good service! Igor, our driver, very polite and helpful, spoke good English. He also helped us with luggage! I've heard from my friends that taxi drivers in Moscow cheat their clients. In this case the price for minivan was fixed, so it was really good Worth it!

The transfer was excellent. Everything went on time, without delays, comfortable transport and a friendly attitude. We were satisfied, thank you!
