The tour was just marvelous. We didn't know Moscow had so much culture, and so much history. We really had a wonderful time.

Our guide Olga was absolutely wonderful. She knows everything and explained us in details, speaks English very fluently and a great help.

Definitely recommend! Do ask for Olga as your guide.

We were in Moscow for only one day and wanted to make the most of our stay in Moscow and so decided to do one day tour of the city. The 5 hour city tour is very well planned out. Our guide was Svetlana and she picked us up from our hotel and ended up spending over 7 hours with us. She is very knowledgable about all the sites she took us to. We couldn't believe how much we learnt and got to see after the day was over. We fell in love with the city and plan to visit Moscow again. Svetlana is a fantastic tour guide and is very fluent in English.
We were impressed by the time and effort she spent to make the tour enjoyable for us.

It was a great experience, I didn't thought that is possible to see so many things in one day. Sirine, the guide, was absolutely great!

I booked the private tour of Sergiev Posad which lasted for about 6 hours due to the hour and 1/2 traveling time required from central Moscow. My guide for the day, Maria, was prompt and arrived at the hotel at the stated time and we made good time to the ancient monastery of Trinity Lavra.

Along both train rides, Maria was a flood of information regarding ancient Russian history regarding the site, as well as many anecdotes about living under the Communist government. It was almost like a quick lesson in Russian history, from the time of St. Sergius to the present.

While it was snowing when we arrived, we were still able to quickly connect with the local monastery guide to walk us through the entire compound, with both guides easily able to answer all questions I had about the place. The Trinity cathedral holding the body of St. Sergius was a powerful experience, highlighted by the countless worshippers paying their respects as haunting hymns echoed through the dark, smoky halls.

I would recommend this trip to anyone with an interest in Russian history and would like to get out of the big city feel of Moscow.

My tour guide was Maria and she was excellent. She knew her stuff and was very pleasant to be with for the two tours I took. I would highly recommend this company and her.
