Our guide, Sergey met us at our hotel and walked with us to the Kremlin. All tickets had been arranged and he led us straight in. Our guide was professional, friendly, very knowledgeable and told us about exhibits and buildings and answered our many questions with perfect English. I have always wanted to visit the Moscow Kremlin and and our Armory Tour was more than I ever hoped for. An experience not to be forgotten.
Choosing a private tour was a great idea. Our guide Ekaterina not only gave us a brilliant Kremlin Armoury tour with lots of information about Russian history, but also chatted about living in Moscow. For my husband and son and I, we felt like we were visiting with a friend and really enjoyed our time - even though it rained the whole time. As Scots, the rain wasn't a problem and the friendly, helpful personality of Ekaterina made us feel welcome and at home. Excellent job Ekaterina!
Oleg met us at the hotel and we quickly bonded while headed to the Metro. His energy, enthusiasm and love for his country was most evident and he shared interesting facts about everything we saw. We were met by someone near the ticket office who had already purchased our tickets which saved considerable time. We walked through Cathedral Square and visited several churches then headed to the Armory/ Treasury where Oleg ensured we saw every hall. He pointed out the highlights and while not rushing us through the exhibits. This personal Diamond tour by Oleg sure beat the herd mentality of a large group. We enjoyed Red Square, Alexandria's Garden and the Kremlin and gained an appreciation for the country, its history and culture as a direct result of Oleg's knowledge. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone and hopefully who will be blessed to have Oleg as your guide.
