My friends and myself booked for a private tour of Moscow city's famous attraction : Red Square and Kremlim. We had a very informative and detailed understanding of the history of these great places. All thanks to our very knowledgeable guide - Andre Nobrega. He has very good knowledge of the City and gave us not only historical understandings of the city, but lotsa tips and guides to navigate around the city.

Our tour also includes a little coffee break which we had delicious russian pies made by nuns and an authentic russian lunch arranged by Andre. We had saved a lot of time by travelling on foot and the Moscow Metro as the traffic is always jam. I would strongly encourage anyone who wish to have a good sightseeing to do it via foot and metro rather than taking car.

Really good way to get the overview of Moscow.
Masha, a keen, well informed young women made my introduction to Moscow interesting and a great experience. She met me at my hotel and we travelled by Metro and walked to see all the big sites. The back room people are great and communicate well. I had text communicated with my guide even before I had reached the hotel the night before! Highly recommended.

It was our first visit to Russia and not speaking any Russian we were nervous about finding our way around Moscow. We thought that a walking tour, with a guide meeting us at our hotel, would be a good introduction. We researched a number of sites and picked Moscow Private Day Tours. Their First Day Moscow Tour seemed to be just what we were looking for. Booking was very easy, save for a slight payment hiccup which was easily overcome. We booked on the Sunday afternoon before our journey to Moscow the following Thursday and were very impressed that there was someone at the office until 7.00pm who we could contact by email to sort the problem out. We got instant confirmation of our booking and of receipt of payment.
Our guide was Masha who met us at our hotel which was a little way from the city centre. We travelled to the Bolshoi Theatre by metro. On the way we stopped at a number of the stunning stations on the metro and Masha showed us the artistic features and explained some of the customs associated with the stations.
Masha was very friendly with a nice sense of humour. She was always happy to explain anything we did not understand at the first time of telling. She was also genuinely interested in us and what we wanted to get out of the tour. She took us everywhere that was outlined on the website and more. She had good English and explained each feature clearly and informatively. She was always happy to take questions and we felt that she would try to show us anything we wanted to see.
We had a mid morning drink and snack in a small local shop and watched locals coming in and out. We continued our tour with Masha pointing out places we should visit and where to buy tickets, etc. (not as obvious in Moscow as one might think).
We had lunch included in our tour at a typical local restaurant. She explained the menu to us and described the different foods before we ordered. It was very different and very nice. We also did the vodka tasting and, whilst we are not vodka drinkers, that was very good also.
We hope to visit Moscow again and will definitely book another tour with Moscow Private Day Tours.

We had one day on our way to the Olympics. We had never been to Russia and we were very nervous. Andre put us at ease very quickly and tailored the tour of Moscow city center on the fly based on our interaction and preferences. He gave a great tour of Red Square and the GUM where he helped us find the Bogner store. He took us to a small shop for hot tea and what we called Kolachies. The shop also had some religious supplies and we wound up with some unique gifts for my sisters. Andre helped us get tickets to the Kremlin and told us what to look for. He also gave us directions to Hard Rock where we had agreed to meet for the night driving tour. We had talked Moscow Tours into moving up the starting time for the driving tour from 8:00pm to 6:00pm because we had a very early flight the next morning. Andre had to customize the driving tour on the fly as well because of the traffic which would be much less at 8:00. I highly recommend Moscow Tours and Andre. We made a connection to Andre and have emailed him about other matters since the tour and he is still helping us.
