This was one of the most enjoyable and worthwhile tours we did in Moscow. Our guide, Anton was excellent and he took us to some incredible places and we ate some interesting and delicious food. It was more than just a food tour though, it was a history tour too - I learned a lot! It was fun, there was a great group of people, we walked in the snow. It was great and is a MUST if you are visiting Moscow!

My guide, Alexander, met me at my hotel and a little early and he started a history of the Moscow metro on our walk to the nearest station. He was friendly and full of knowledge and taught me a lot about Moscow and the history of the underground and several beautiful stations in particular.

We are happy and contented with our russian girl guide named anna - she explains well in english and is very kind and helpful to our needs

This is a boy's dream come true. Nice folks; great experience. A reason by itself for travelling to Russia!
