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.

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.

Thank you, Alan for your review! It gives me great memories of the times before COVID, feels like it was in my previous life. So much time passed since you wrote your review, and so much happened. I moved to Canada, Calgary and will do my tours in the nearest future. If you will travel to Alberta once in the future, don't hesitate to contact me!

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.

We wanted to do the golden ring and hence contacted tony, right from the beginning he was very responsive through wats app and catered to all our needs. I would really appreciate his patience as we kept changing our plan every other day but he always catered and adjusted to our plans. He is informative and very friendly, thank you Tony...

I was touch with Tony almost 12 months before going to Moscow and could not rate his service high enough. He was readily available on email or skype, and if not responded very quickly.
He is flexible, knowledgeable and very customer focused. We did not finalise anything until we met in the hotel lobby in Moscow and planned our trip for the day.
What we enjoyed was not only did we do the touristy things but Tony took us to places, vodka cafes, that we would not have experienced with other guides or groups. He made getting around the Metro easier and allowed us to enjoy the experience.
Tony also saved us money by arranging transport to the station when we were leaving Moscow.
I would highly reccommend Tony if you are wanted a great Moscow experience.

I joined the trip to Kostroma region with lots of different activities. We did sight visiting, mud driving, fireplace cooking and much more. The story-telling skills of Anton are not only interesting but also amusing, so you won't have a dull moment during your trip.
This off-the-beaten track adventure was a great addition to my Russia experience and I can highly recommend it to everybody who visited Moscow and St. Petersburg already.

I am still struggling to fully explain the unique experience of exploring the disused artificial caves of the bygone limestone mining era. It was not just one of the best things I have done in Moscow, but one of my overall favourite experiences ever!! The trip is not a straightforward amble round some caves, it is a descent into another world with Tony as a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide who just bubbles over with passion for his subject. You will get some unique pictures and the experience wil stay with you. You will also hear some wild stores about the people that like to frequent the caves and as Tony said the phrase 'what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas' certainly applied deep below the surface at Domodedovo...

We spent six nights on a meandering road trip from Moscow to St. Petersburg with Travel Real Russia, experiencing not just the magnificent tourist sites, but also the small villages, back roads and real people. Tony worked with us long-distance to develop a custom itinerary, threw in a guided morning walk in Moscow and was invaluable in helping with various other travel arrangements. I'd recommend spending some time viewing the Travel Real Russia website and exploring possibilities.
Tony is good company, young, energetic and knowledgeable. Also honest. And funny. And his English is excellent, though he insists on pronouncing "Ruble" as "rubble."
Best compliment: We felt like we were visitors, not tourists.

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.
