Once again we were the only persons in the tour. Despite the weather - it was very cold for us - I'll do it again.
I really enjoyed my tour in Moscow. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. I just wish the tour operator would pick customers up at their hotels. I did not know the city or the language, and I had to pay for a taxi to go meet the tour and to come back to the hotel.
This was a great way to get around the city - enough time was allowed to stop for pictures.
Nice overview, very informative.
We got there right on time, but a couple arrived almost 30 minutes late. Not sure if this was the cause of the rest of the tour being rushed, but that was how it felt. We passed a lot of great sites but that was just it -- we passed by them. Only stopped at 3-4 sites to take photos for about 5 minutes.
The tour guide was satisfactory in pointing out the sights. In driving past, there was often only time to say: on the right we have x; on the left we have y. But the guide could have done more to engage with us and on the photo stops to give us a bit more information and historical detail of the buildings and location.
Nevertheless, reasonably priced for a Moscow tour and a good way to get an overview of central Moscow.
This could have been a total disaster. The directions given for finding the tour bus were so unclear that we spent an unhappy 20 minutes running round a square full of buses trying - and failing - to find ours. It was sheer luck that we eventually found the right one, almost 10 minutes after its scheduled departure. And then we wished we hadn't found it as the guide was an unpleasant woman who seemed to hate her job, and the bus was old and battered.
This was our only disappointment with Viator, and we couldn't possibly recommend this tour to anyone.
muy corto por lo que es moscu. el guia con un ingles muy limitado. aceptable pero nada mas
Somewhat rushed as we left a little late but guide was knowledgeable and pleasant.
It was a good way to see some key locations around the city... orientate yourself. We're glad we did it. It did make exploring this very big city a little easier.
First of all, please fire that bus driver, how rude! I said to him hello in Russian, he did not answer.Then I said, Hey driver there is a woman waiting (freezing) to get on the bus (please open the door), he said in Russian " so what?". The tour guide himslef was good, this tour is a very quick orientation type of tour, very limited stops and time.
We got off the bus at the convent and had to wait for 3/4 hour before it came around again. We rang the office but no-one could speak English. It might have been helpful if we had a mobile of the tour guide.
