We definitely recommend this tour, especially on the first day in Moscow if you can make it as it really gives you your bearings for the city. Very little English is spoken in Moscow so doing this tour we learn so much information from our guide. After doing this tour we then went back to the places where we wanted to spend some more time.
A good introduction to the city. We did not realise from the description on Viator that it is actually a hop-on hop-off tour. Also, we had some trouble finding the meeting point and the phone number printed on the ticket voucher was incorrect.
I almost missed this tour as I did not receive on time the mail telling me the departure time had changed 3.30 instead of 2.30. I fortunately called the agency in Moscow after 30min waiting and they told me I should wait 30 more min. I think you should have called me as you had my mobile phone number. Apart from that, I enjoyed the guide and the tour !
The tour was good, but the starting point isn't easy to find for someone who has never been to Moscow.
Guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Tour was interesting, and there was enough walking that it didn't feel like a bus drive-by tour.
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.
