We are a team of remote employees. We decided to gather at the online Christmas party and brought Olga and Anna to show us Moscow and share the main Russian traditions through an online tour!

It was super fun! Girls are sooo prepared, highly organised, and soulful!

100% recommended!

Girls, thank you very much! Wish you to only prosper!

Valentina was our guide and gave the excursion excellently. She told us a lot of interesting things and showed us historical photographs (this is a great idea, since the photographs helped to imagine what Moscow was like in different years). We also discovered new and unusual places for ourselves. Thank you very much for such a useful and fun pastime!

Our group was surprised to find out a lot of interesting facts and open new historical places. Our guide Valentina made her best to give us all information with the highest degree of clearness and even showed historical photos and maps of the city of Moscow. The narration was perfectly diluted with riddles and quests, so everyone was satisfied. At the end we felt warm (even it was a windy evening) due to happy atmosphere of a usefully spent day.

We booked the „Off the Beaten Path Tour“ and it was great!! Valentina, our tour guide, was super enthusiastic and motivated, spoke great English and made the tour very fun. I am not going to spoil much but there are some interesting surprises waiting for you during the tour and some interesting facts about Moscow and it’s history that otherwise you probably would not have discovered. You will also be shown some suuuuuper nice hidden places. Can totally recommend and thanks to Valentina again for the great experience 🤩

My friends and I recently enjoyed a fantastic evening touring Moscow by hosted Olga and Anna! Lots of laughs and fun while learning about traditions and history of Moscow. Highly recommend this tour if you're looking for a low key and fun way to spend time with friends and family virtually.

This is a superb experience - an online virtual tour of Moscow. It is absolutely perfect for work parties and groups of friends.

In advance, Anna and Olga send you a short shopping list (the most important thing is the Russian vodka, of course) and a link. At the time of your tour, you click on the link and suddenly you find yourself in Moscow...

Using their brilliant 3-D technology, Anna and Olga then show you some of the highlights of Moscow - including Red Square, St Basil's, GUM and many more. Along the way, you will be told interesting stories and facts about this beautiful and exciting city. The whole experience lasts about 1 hour.

You will also be told how to drink vodka like a true Russian - and there are plenty of chances along the way to have a toast or two...

We were a group of 15 work friends and every single one of us thought it was amazing. It is a shame that we cannot travel at the moment - or have any parties - so this is a great way to combine the two - all without leaving the comfort of your home.

Thoroughly recommended.

We've been on the tour "Moscow Walking Tour Through the Eyes of Locals" with Alexandra. It was a truly unique experience. Societ-style Georgian tavern (cheburechnaja), 1st McDonald's, moving buildings - I've never heard about these before. And Alexandra is easygoing and interesting to talk to, she has many fascinating stories to tell. But don't believe me - try it out yourself, you won't regret)

This was so much more than a walking tour. My guide, Daya was fantastic company. I got to see places only a local would know. It was more like a walk with a friend. One of the best walking tours I have done.
