Nina picked us up from our hotel, gave us a fascinating two-hour guided walk around Red Square and St Basil’s, with great stories and history en route. We all were enthralled, and she made it interesting for our 7-year old too. She was kind enough to travel with us to our lunch venue. Highly recommended.

good tour

a very informative guide, showed us lots of places and gave an very interesting insight to the red Square and St Basils. One comment that this was not a "pick up" we walked to the metro, not a problem for us but perhaps someone with mobility issues could find this a little hard. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Many thanks

Above and Beyone Your Standard Guide!

This was our first visit to Moscow and It was made a truly memorable visit by our guide Sergey Lutskovsky. I would compell anyone to ask for him personally as his dedication to ensuring you not only enjoy his informative guide but also have a bit of a laugh whilst doing it. He understands 'westeners' and has an immense knowledge of the sights. Sergey even gave us further information whilst we were travelling which just made the whole tour even more special. I would not hesistate to recommend him personally as a guide but also the company, easy booking process and great response to requests. You can't go wrong! Book it!
