Our recent trip to Moscow was wonderful, in great part due to our excellent guide, ELENA. She made us feel welcome, spoke pefect English and understood our needs with no fuss. She even understood my brothers sense of humour – not always easy! Elena showed us a very ‘real’ picture of Moscow and her organisation was invaluable when it came to queuing and entry to sights. She has comprehensive knowledge and an obvious pride in her city.
Our cruise ship stopped for 3 days in St. Petersburg and we opted to travel by high speed train for a day in Moscow. ELENA met us promptly and welcomed us in perfect English. The tour was beautifully organized–van took us first to stunning view points to get the lay of the beautiful land, then we zeroed in on the magnificent cathedrals, the Kremlin areas, the State Armory, Red Square, even a metro tour, with Elena’s knowledge of art and history making every site come alive. We covered a lot of territory, including a fun lunch stop in the famous Gum department store. Elena took us back to the train station and made sure we boarded before she said goodbye. All in all, a breathtakingly informative and awe-inspiring day.
ANNA was so knowledgeable about so many different things — history, film, culture –the art museum tour was incredible — I was blown away by her knowledge. She is a must – Tretyakov Gallery, the Kremlin tour was also a highlight and the metro visit. I can recommend her highly enough!
Just had 2 great tours with Moscow city tour. I would say it is a must to have a guide for the Kremlin as there is so much to see and Moscow City Tour did us proud with their private four hour tour. We had a lovely guide NADYA who was very knowledgeable and gave us plenty of time to ourselves to take photos etc. The next day we had a private tour by car with ELENA from the same company and again had a great time finishing with coffee at the GUM store. Great guides and their website was easy to use.
Wir sind sehr beeindruckt vom Moskau, nicht zuletzt dank einer guten Führung von ELENA und kompetenten Erklärungen. Nochmals vielen Dank – wir haben es sehr genossen. Am Samstag gingen wir nach dem Nachtessen (Bison Steakhouse) nochmals auf den roten Platz – wir waren dann wirklich die letzten um 12.15 Uhr die vom Platz gingen – es war einfach super mit der Beleuchtung. Lenin Mausoleum, GUM und Arbat haben wir auch noch am Samstag gemacht – auch sehr toll – mit der UBahn hat alles geklappt.
We had 3 days with our Moscow City Tour guide ELENA and covered a lot of ground. She was very friendly, spoke very good English and worked hard to show us everything on our planned itinerary. The tours worked well for us as we had half day tours and lunch before being free to explore and do our own thing. Elena was very good at providing information as we looked at the city, metro, Kremlin and visited Sergiev Posad where we also had an excellent guide. Overall we would highly recommend Moscow City Tours and Elena.
We came to Moscow with my family and all enjoyed our time here. It will remain a beautiful experience in our minds, thanks to professional knowledge, availability and kindness our guide SVETA on scouting us through Moscow.
Our group came from the South of France, from Arles. SERGEY was our guide in Moscow 29.of May to 01. of June 2015. We were discovering the gems of this amazing city with a great pleasure. We are happy that Sergey promoted for us his love to Moscow.
My wife and I took a Volga river cruise from St. Petersburg to Moscow. We extended our stay in Moscow to see more of what the city had to offer. One of our days there, we went on the Moscow subway tour and the Arbat excursion. Our guide was ELENA for this portion of our tour. She met us at our hotel and we enjoyed our both tours. She also made recommendations for nice restaurants near our hotel that we might enjoy, which we later did. We enjoyed our time with Elena and hope someday to have her show us more of Moscow.
ELENA has a lovely English with an extended and accurate vocabulary that make very easy to follow and understand the entire tour.
She was capable to engage the group during the all tours. She also has a very good technique to mix history, gossip and tips about the Russian and Moscow history, creating an interesting experience that I highly recommend to anyone that would like to know more about Moscow.
