We were the only ones to sign up, in essence a private tour. Lenna not only gave us great historical information but lots of great insights into Russian people and culture through the ages. The metro stops have to be seen to believed truly spectacular! Kolmensoye was a bit chilly with fresh fallen snow, but very serene. All in all, a really great day!

This tour was by far the highlight of my trip to Moscow. The guide we had was incredible and thorough and the experience from beginning to the end was fantastic. I highly recommend this tour! One cannot leave Moscow without seeing the subway stations! They are nothing short of magnificent!

Very much enjoyed the tour. The Moscow Metro stations are true works of art and the Kolomensoye Estate was amazing! I skipped an organized tour with my group in order to take this tour. Lovely guide -- a great day out!

Excellent private tour! We lucked out. It was nice to get off the tourist track and head out to Kolomensoye Estate. Our guide was amazing and very generous with her time too!

This tour was excellent and exceeded our expectations in terms of the amount of remarkable things we saw and the attention and knowledge of our guide and there were only two of us on the tour.
The Metro stations have a very impressive array of art museum quality and the history and stories the art tells need a guide to totally appreciate. Each station has different art and the stations are clean with no graffiti. We then walked about 20 minutes to the Kolmensoye Estate which is on a hillside with great views into downtown Moscow.
At the end of the tour, our guide stayed with us on the Metro to the station closest to our hotel. Such service.

As a daily metro user at home, this was a great tour of beautiful stations and the history of soviet propaganda.

We had a very knowledgeable guide who was keen to help us make the most of it. The Metro tour was lovely as was Kolomenskoye Estate, however I wish we had the chance to visit the Church of the Ascension as well, which was the most unique building in the large park. If it had been on the tour agenda, I would definitely give this trip 5 stars! Still enjoyed it immensely!

Great tour guide. Weather was rainy so we did the metro first. Loved seeing the great Soviet architecture. She even taught us how to buy tickets and use the system which made the rest of our trip so much better! When we finished that portion of the tour, the weather had cleared so we had a great afternoon in Kolomensoye Park. The tour was well,paced and guide was wonderful. It was just the guide and ourselves so we were able to linger where we wanted to.

Do the tour of the stations - that was awesome!! Natalia was our guide and she gave us loads of info, pointed things out and guided us to the best stations. Visiting the Kolomensoye Estate was not worth it. When booking the trip I did not realize that the Wooden Palace I wanted to see was actually destroyed many many years ago!!

Natalia was a very experienced and knowledgeable guide. She was able to coney the full story behind all the subway stations we visited and covered the history well at Kolomenscoye Estate.
Make sure you have lunch and a drink before going on this 11am tour as there are no stops along the way.

The metro tour portion was amazing! Kolomensoye was interesting but not worth it if you only have a few days in town. Also, apparently the neat part of the Estate includes a big wooden palace that was not part of our tour.

The Metro was explained to us with high accuracy. Marvellous piece of work done.
Kolomensoye estate is unique. As the guide explained the stories well it became interesting.

2 hours before start they called to tell me the tour needed to be delayed for 2 hours. Guide still did her best but I missed most of Kolomensoye as this didn't fit my schedule.

Metro component Ok but too many trips. Park visit very very ordinary. An overrated tour. Moscow offers little for the tourist apart from Red Square. The Kremlin visit was overrated and St. Basil's just ordinary. An overall disappointing Moscow visit
