Excellent tour! I love history and I grew up in America during the 80s during the waning days of Communism, so this interested me from a personal historical standpoint. Our guide took us around Red Square and the area and discussed the uprising that brought down Russia's last tsar and ushered in Communism, Lenin and his views of Communism that were never quite realized and Stalin's terror that cost millions of lives. She pointed our several buildings that were central to Russia's Communist government, some still in existence in a government capacity, some now converted to other uses. This tour didn't bang the drum for Communism nor did it demonize it completely impartial. Just make sure you dress warmly for the winter because it's a night tour that takes place mostly outside!
Tour guide was knowledgeable and engaging. She shared personal anecdotes and tied it to the way things are today and the differences. I learned a lot and the time flew on this tour. It also pointed out things I never would have seen or known had I not taken this tour. A must do tour!
Loads of information about propaganda and showed us some unique historical spots!
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!
This tour was amazing!
This was a great intro to Moscow. Our guide Malina was amazing. She shared stories from her own experiences, drawing contratsts between pre and post communist Russia which were entertaining as well as educational. The tour also cover some of the main sights in Moscow e.g. the former KGB headquarters, GUM, Tverskaya street, the Bolshoi theater from the outside etc.
Loved this tour of Moscow - was visiting on my own so great way of getting familiar with the city on my first evening. Tour guide was prompt, very friendly and knowledgeable. I did a second tour with her the next day!!!!
Great tour - thanks
our guide was amazing
