Absolutely brilliant. We were taken to 10 different stations by our helpful tour guide and were given plenty of time to take photos. Was given interesting information about the symbolistic artwork and history. Also we were able to request where we wanted to be 'dropped off' at the end of the tour.
The metro tour is totally worth your time and money. Oleg was our guide. What we saw would have been much less relevant without his knowledge and his willingness to go above and beyond so we could understand. To whom History matters, as it did for us, we should say that we had a great combination: the choice of the tour and the Guide that was allocated. Highly recommended.
We had a terrific metro tour with our guide Sergey. He gave us very profound insights into the history and architecture of the various stations. Also, all other questions about life in Moscow he answered very informatively. I highly recommend the metro tour!
