We loved this tour with Reilya. She knew lots of great insights and history. She was very informative and accommodating to our interests, questions, and requests. It was a cold and lightly snowy day, so we ended up being the only ones to sign up, a private tour!

I was so happy to take this fantastic personal tour! Because of a little rain that did not stop my guide Illija from a very detailed unique tour. He was very knowledgeable, answered all questions and made this three hour tour seem like minutes . This tour is a must!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

This tour was really excellent and I would recommend it to anyone that wants to see Moscow from the perspective of someone that lives there. The tour provides an engaging contrast from the sights you will see if you simply follow the tourist guides.

I really enjoyed this behind the scenes glimpse of Moscow- ending of course in the iconic Red Square. I was the only customer on the tour along with two trainee guides so the attention and amount of information I came away with was unsurpassed.
