I booked Bridge to Moscow based on recommendations on TripAdvisor. We travel frequently and always book private guides. Most guide companies in Europe are good, a few are great. This one is great.

Both Anna and Katerina were energetic, intelligent, knowledgeable and personable. They went out of their way to assist us with various requests, from booking restaurants to finding SIM cards.
The pricing was also reasonable. I highly recommend this company.

We planned this trip well in advance and decided to use a guide in Moscow as we were only going to be there for a short time. Our guide was Katerina - we knew before we arrived that she was efficient and knowledgable - her prompt replies to all questions were so helpful - and the day-tour she arranged was simply superb. She took us to all the sights we had asked to see and some more besides. Masses of knowledge is one thing but the ability to pass it on in an interesting and engaging way is a special gift - and Katerina is a gifted person. Lots of other writers have and will speak about her expert guide services but it was Katerina the person who made it so special for us. In a fascinating day there was one very special moment - whilst looking at Stravinsky's grave in a Moscow cemetery we heard his music coming from behind us! Katerina had saved pieces of his music to her IPad - as well as music from other people buried here - it was such a creative thing to do which was typical of the entire day.
Bridge to Moscow arranged transfers as well as this fabulous tour and we commend them - and Katerina of course - to anybody who wants to see, and understand, the great city of Moscow.

Our guide was Anna. She was a god send. She replied to our emails very promptly. She arrived on time, took breaks when we were cold and was a fountain of knowledge. She was very helpful with any little query we had. Anna made our holiday, cannot thank her enough!!!

Anna was my initial contact at BridgetoMoscow and very prompt in responding to all my questions (by e-mail from the United States) before our trip.
She assured us that Mikhail was a good tour guide with an excellent command of english.

Mikhail was an exceptional guide and we made a great connection with him.
He is a marvel at what he does and we were very pleased with his knowledge
and skills as a guide. He has a marvelous way of explaining Russian history and went above and beyond our expectations. High energy! The four of us were exhausted by the end of the day but Mikhail was ready for us to see more.

Highly recommended.

We arranged for a 2 day private tour for a group of 4 around Moscow. Katerina was our guide and she was professional, prompt, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, smart and spoke flawless English. We wanted a customized tour that included flexibility and specific sites. Katerina worked with us to give us the exact customized tour we wanted. She was also flexible during the tour and we changed a few things during the day. She is unbelievably smart (she was a Fulbright Scholar who was a teacher's assistant at Brown University in Rhode Island) and has the a most impressive knowledge of Russian and Moscow history. She also has a special way of explaining art in galleries, Churches and metros that will give you a unique perspective and appreciation that you have never seen before. Her enthusiasm about art is inspirational. Katerina also has a fun and bubbly personality and all four of us could not have enjoyed her tour more. She made our visit to Moscow one that we will never forget. Also, we contacted several tour companies prior to our trip and she was the most responsible, flexible and enthusiastic of all the guides we talked to. Bridge To Moscow also had the most reasonable pricing of all the flexible tours. We recommend Bridge To Moscow without reservation.
