I had a one on one city tour with the most fabulous young man who took me to places I would never have seen with anyone else. We walked the city for almost four hours and I consider it a highlight of a five week European adventure!

Had an amazing experience walking the streets of Moscow with Alina. She is very knowledgeable on details regarding key monuments, structures and historical events in the city. Great conversationalist, kept me engaged the whole time. It was a very fun three hour tour with her, she even offered to guide me on how to take the underground metro back to hotel at the conclusion of our tour, which I liked very much. I highly recommend.

Kate was great! It was Moscow's birthday the day I arrived and Red Square was packed! Kate tried her best in getting us front row for the firework show but they set them off elsewhere in which there was really no way of telling where, but it was a great tour especially when I had just arrived in the country earlier that afternoon!
