“Thank you, Marina”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

We had only two hours left in Moscow and we were looking at the metro map (very difficult) when a very elegant, tiny (me and my husband are three times her size), very gentle lady, asked if we needed help. I explained her that we did not want to leave Moscow without seeing the amazing metro stations that I saw lots of times in different emails. This lady changed my opinion about Muscovites because, until then, they were not very friendly- even in stores – but she offered to show us the most important and beautiful metro stations. It was awesome, firstly because Moscow metro stations are really art masterpieces but specially because of Marina’s kindness and knowledge. She knew everything about each station – the story, the age of building, what is its soul representation. Thank you Marina for the two best hours in Moscow.

“Avoid rush hour!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012 via mobile

I am a seasoned world traveller but I have never had to fight my way off a train as I did in Moscow. Weekends the system is quiet and easy to use. I made the mistake of trying to get somewhere at 6 in the evening on a weekday. Even Ryanair would be shocked at the scrum that occurred at each station on the No1 line that evening!! Yes, the stations are impressive, long escalators that take you deep under Moscow, and the grey people of Moscow who have non existent queuing skills!

“Impressive Moscow Metro”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012 via mobile

Strangely impressive. Partly a dark symbol of Soviet hybris, partly a modern transportation system. Lenin statues all over the place.
