    A quick and pleasant glimpse of the riches of Moscow.

    We were very happy with our visit with Put-in Tours. We were thus able to see monuments that, alone, we would not have had time to approach. Our very friendly guide picked us up from the hotel and was able to adapt the circuit to compensate for the closure of Red Square (May 1). The little stopover with drink and toast was very pleasant. Taking this tour in a Soviet vehicle adds spice (and allows for great photos!).

    Excellent ride, the Soviet truck is too much fun. Excellent guide, Tim is very nice as well as super friendly and has a very good story. Highly recommended.

    The tour was very informative and you get a good overview of the city. What I found curious was that it was carried out even though I was the only participant. Kudos to both of my guides and thank you very much!
