We hired Victoria for a one day guide for Moscow. She was great! She allowed us to customize our day, which was a huge plus for us. She toured the Armory with us, as well as the Kremlin and 3 of it's cathedrals, Red Square, the Metro, and Izmailovsky Market. She was very knowledgeable and has a good command of... More

We took a river boat tour from St Petersburg to Moscow, and added on an additional 3 days in Moscow to travel on our own. For the first two days of these independent days, we hired Viktoria to show us her town. From the start of our planning for this time, Viki was helpful and professional. She reviewed the tours...

We used Viki last week (7/14/14). We arrived on a river cruise which did not give us the option of booking a tour of the Armory. We found Viki on TripAdvisor, and booked her for a tour of the Kremlin. She arranged for a friend to pick up our tickets for the Armory (available only 30 minutes prior to one... More

We arrived in Moscow two days before a river cruise and booked a day tour with Viktoria Smirnova. Because we were going to be seeing the main tourist sites on our river cruise, we asked her to show us other parts of Moscow. She took us to the Izmailovsky market as my friend wanted to see it. Her expertise in... More

"My trip to Moscow was greatly enhanced by the tour service offered by Viktoria! She enriched my time there and I can give her an A plus. If you visit Moscow, I encourage everyone to contact Viktoria and see and learn about Moscow and Russia. She met us where we were staying and made sure we arrived back safely. The... More

My wife who is a long time docent at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC said she would be hard pressed to identify a better guide than Vicki Smirnova. Vicki is well versed in Russian history, art, architecture and religion. Her command of English is excellent. Perhaps her most distinguishing characteristic is her warmth and the excitement she conveys (it... More

I visited Moscow as a single female lone traveller in Feb 2013, I found Viki via your web page and found she was an excellent, extremely friendly, knowledgeable guide. She showed me Moscow at it's best in the depth of winter and I found her and the Russian people who spoke to me through Viki to be open and friendly.... More

We were in Moscow the first week of September (2013) for the second time. The first time we were in Moscow was on a Viking River Cruise in 2011. Instead of going on the tours with Viking, we opted to hire Viktoria to show us Moscow. She was great! We saw about twice as many sites as those passengers who... More

We were fortunate in finding Victoria through Tripadvisor and arranged to spend a few days on a return trip to Moscow - a frenetic, fascinating city but one which really needs the insights of an excellent guide. Victoria was extremely good and we enjoyed her company as well as the insights she shared and we learned a great deal about... More

I simply found Victoria thanks to TripAdvisor. I emailed her only a few days prior to my visit as it was a quick visit. She emailed very. Promptly and I told her what I wanted to see and she made sure all of the highlights were on the trip. Unfortunately Lenin's tomb was closed but that did not deter my... More
