Fantastic tour! Faberge collection and coaches are amazing!
Our tour guide Irina was lovely and very knowledgeable. The tour is great, would definitely recommend, but it feels a little bit rushed as it only covers a small part of the interesting stations. Perhaps a longer tour would be a good idea. Spasiba, it was a really enjoyable experience.
Doing what: Moscow Metro Tour
Great introduction to Moscow. This was out first morning haveing arrived late into Moscow - so this was a wonderful orientation to the city. We covered quite a distance but had repeated stops to learn about the historical significance of the buildings. Some great anecdotes of life in Russia.

This tour was very exciting, informative, and personal. We had an AMAZING time with our guide and truly learned a lot from our experience. I would recommend this tour and this guide to anyone who plans to travel to this area of Europe. The tour was well-worth the money, and I will definitely book this tour or a similar tour the next time I travel!
Doing what: Communist Moscow: Evening Walking Tour
was my first of many tours and loved it - thanks again
great way to say hello to Moscow
A wonderful visit to the Kremlin - our guide Tatiana was extermely knowledgeable and gave us just the right amount of information for our 13 and 17 year old. Amazing to see all the Russian treasures in the Diamond fund and Armory and inside the beautiful churches. Highly recommended.
I had a Sunday evening to fill in Moscow before a morning train to St. Petersburg, and this was a nice way to get a feel for a different side of the city. The tour departed from a statue in the park outside the Kitay-Gorad metro, which was great since I had spent the afternoon nearby. About 8 people had signed up for a Sunday evening. Our guide, Vicky, was a fun and free-spirited young woman who spoke excellent colloquial English although I pointed out to her that hunky-dory is not a current expression, and I added awesomesauce to her vocabulary!
This tour explores the somewhat seedy underside of Moscow, which is quickly disappearing with the gentrification of the urban core. We saw a church where the KGB had executed prisoners, walked through the old Ukrainian ghetto that is quickly transforming, saw some former brothels and illicit distilleries, and then took the tram to the now-fashionable over the river neighborhood. Vicky pointed out a number of good and affordable restaurant options, and gave other suggestions of nice areas to explore in the city. It was a nice way to spend a few hours and I'd recommend this as a supplement to the typical cathedral and Kremlin tours.

Tour just didn't happen. Directions for meeting guide very general - Biblioteka Lenina metro, Kutafia Tower of the Moscow Kremlin. Starting time 2pm. We were there at 1 30. Stayed till 2 30. Looked for guide, asked various tour leaders who assured us we were in the right place, walked round looking for someone identifying themselves as being from Viator. Back at hotel rang the company who told us guide was there from 2pm till 2 15. If she or he was then they made no effort to look for us and we were very disappointed and have paid for a tour that was supposed to happen and didn't. We couldn't do the tour the next day as we were leaving Moscow. Not happy!
Doing what: Moscow Metro Tour
Getting confused from losing track of which station to get and getting off the wrong stop, I was running late to the group at some white building with 3 brown doors at the Bibliotheca Lenin station.
Wondering how I got confused on the Moscow metro, let me break it down for you, 1 if you don't know the Russian alphabet, you are screwed as the signs above aren't in English and if lucky, the signs on the ground are if present or if an English speaking Russian if there to help you. And 2 the metro station names are on walls where the trains are - meaning, you have to listen to the station announcements which is helpful if you know Russian as they are in the Russian alphabet, look at the metro map and countdown the station stops to your stop or look for the station name thru the window facing the tunnel walls which are photographer in Russian.
So, now that we all are clear on the challenges of navigating the Moscow Metro if not knowing Russian, now are the 1-star review. The office could not reached the tour guild at all. I called the phone number provided to informed them I'm running late. They told me the right building to go to at the Bibliotheca Lenin station I was at the library side going to strange groups of people thinking they are the tour group and the tour guide would wait 10 minutes. OK, fair enough, but they could not contact the tour guide. I was minutes away and it was nearing 2:10pm, so I had to hassle, but you cannot cross the street to from library side to the Red Square unless one has a death wish, not doing what to do, eventually, I discovered realized that they underground pedestrian tunnels. So, I take it to cross the street, but got off on the wrong side. So, its back underground again, to the ride side where the white building with 3 wooden doors is, looking for the tour guide while making my way thru some Chinese tourists acting like children at Disney world to a tour group for a different tour, but of the same company, wh

Very knowledgeable tour guide. Fabulous. However the Kremlin was not too nice, did not allow her in with us and she tried to get a ticket and also to give us some audio headsets and they did not allow her in a certain area. They then wanted her info. It was very upsetting. She did not do anything wrong, I hope this got resolved. She is a very kind and smart woman.
As a solo female traveller, I opted for this private tour to help orientate myself on the first day in Moscow. Was so glad I did !
It gave me confidence to navigate the metro system alone and to get my bearings with a local who could give advice. It was great to get a feel for places and areas that I could return to afterwards but even if you did only one trip whilst in Moscow this would ensure you saw all the highlights. Perfect !
