    Excellant. Lovely informative guide who spoke perfect English. Took us to sites and areas we probably wouldn't have thought to visit ourselves. Guide also gave us general advice about other places/areas of interest to visit. Worth every penny and then some. Moscow must be visited at night it's so interesting and beautiful.

    Low key but fun tour around some of Moscow's lesser known parts. Nice to see real community events going on and also old printing office being reborn as local clothing store. Elena was a gem, and her stories of serial killers and so on were great. Fun to finish on an old tram with real Muscovites doing their own thing, and tour finishes in a cool area with lots of bars and eateries. Worth doing.

    we started the tour just after the hurricane. Bad luck, no tram trip possible. Good luck, we were only two guests, had possibility to discuss / place questions. She the guide had thorough knowledge of the region, also very motivated to tell us everything. Recommend.

    Wasn't able to take this tour in December as I had hurt my leg and couldn't walk. However, I took this tour the previous summer and it was great.

    This was a great way to see a part of Moscow that most tourists don't visit. We LOVED our guide she was knowledgeable and funny and helped everyone find a good place to eat after the tour. I only wish she told MORE stories we didn't hear about free masons and sorcerers, and sadly did not end at the Soviet era pub. Otherwise, my husband and I thought it was wonderful despite the cold!
