Tour for History Lovers Visiting Moscow

The highlight of the tour is... history! And our discussions about it. I'm highly interested in Russian history as well as its heritage and influence on modern Russia. During the tour, we may customize our itinerary and choose the places you want to visit and discuss.

Why this tour is unique? I know a lot about bustling Moscow, its secret places and their stories. Even more I know about the Russian countryside, where epochal monuments neighbor with abandoned churches and desolated villages showing you severe traces of the 20th century. I hope that with me you may explore one of the most complex, confounding and contradictory countries... Russia.

We booked Tony from Australia and we could not have had a better guide. Extremely knowledgeable about Moscow, took us to local places, such as the vodka bars, very flexible in arrangements. Highly recommended.

We had two day-trips with Tony. The first day we did a walking and metro-tour of Moscow, the second day we went to Sergiev Posad and a datcha belonging to friends of Tony. Both days were great. We learned a lot about local life and saw places we would never have found if we had done everything by ourselves. Tony is very talkative, has a good sense of humour and speaks excellent English. We have planned to go back to Moscow in the future and for sure we will use Tony's service again then.

Super interesting from 1st minute until last. We have dicovered a lot of places of hidden Moscow. Our guide was exceptional. Effectively Moscow was completely different during soviet period. That we knew before.... But so deeply different it was not possible to imagine before this tour. Also the bar to drink shot(s) of vodka. Looking like 30 years ago. A great and unforgettable discovery.

I booked Tony for the six day Golden Ring tour (there is not an option in the tour selections above). Tony was very easy to correspond with beforehand and arranging the visa documents which was a pain from my first Russia trip and has very good English. It met Tony in Moscow after arriving from Kazan. We had the six days penciled in and improvised the trip as we went along depending on interest. At Tony's suggestion we went further north of the traditional Golden Ring at Kostroma into the frontier towns of Galich and Soligalich, which are time capsules and normal road access ends. We then detoured into the wilderness from Chukhloma to the Lesney Terem Astashovo Wood Palace hotel which is a museum hotel. We then hiked thru logging mud trails and crossing a river to get to a second run down Wood Palace where a local still lives and was happy to show us around. There are videos of all our experiences on my youtube channel [departures1]. After rejoining the Golden Ring route from Yaroslavl we finished in Moscow and did a driving tour of the Soviet architecture. I really enjoyed the six day trip and this is the type of adventure if you want something more original and authentic. We spent time visiting abandoned Churches and inside derelict homes that other guides may not take you to so you can be as creative as you like with Tony. We also visited Mosques in northern Russia which I would not have expected. I would highly recommend touring with Tony and planning a great adventure together.

Do you want to have an extraordinary experience in Russia or Moscow? I highly recommend Tony with his amazing UAZ! Tony is super friendly, funny & smart. We really enjoyed travelling one day in forest with delicious bbq forest near the river. It’s a new experience for us and priceless! Keep do your best man!
