Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Free tours by local guides offer visitors the opportunity to see the real Moscow! While each of these places are unique to Moscow and are on everyone's "must see" list – for a person to fall in love with the city and truly understand it, they must see it through the eyes of the person who lives here.

“The best way to see Moscow - with a local”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2012

I arranged for a greeter, having already used similar service in New York. The couple I met were very knowledgeable about the City and I found it fascinating talking to them about the City, Country, changes that had happened and the future.
They both worked for companies which dealt with English speaking firms and it seemed a good idea for them to improve their English. It was good already!
I gained great knowledge about the real life of locals and the way they saw their City through their own eyes. They were very enthusiastic and excellent ambassadors for Moscow and showed real interest in making sure that tourists enjoy their visit.
If you have already seen the main sights, they can take you to some of the less well-known, but more local ones. These arrangements can be made before you visit or flexible changes can be made on the day of the tour. T asked to be taken anywhere off the main tourist track and we went to Tsaritsyno Park, where Catherine the Great had a magnificent palace and grounds. We then went to some residential areas, has a snack in a local café.
A magnificent day; my best in Moscow and thoroughly recommend it to others – but they are popular so book early and be flexible.
