Our tour guide Tanya was knowledgeable and engaging. She shared her personal experiences growing up in USSR and explained the differences between then and now. I learned a lot and the time flew on this tour. A must do tour!
I would recommend this tour to anyone who plans to travel to Moscow. The tour covers some of the main sights in Moscow e.g. the former KGB headquarters, Revolution Square, Bolshoi theater from the outside, VDNKh, etc. It was well-worth the money, and I will definitely book this tour or a similar tour the next time I travel!
