Oleg was a terrific guide. We visited central Moscow and I learned a great deal about architecture and Russian history I am a professional historian and I learned a great deal. It was nice to get a sense of the center of the city. Perfect for a first time visitor.
I requested a short tour of Kremlin complex as I was with my 12 yo son, and kids get bored quickly with history. Oleg, our guide picked us up from hotel on time. Oleg was energetic, friendly, and eager to show and explain about his city. We enjoyed our tour with him, and recommend using his services.
I had a marvellous tour. The guide arrived bang on time, spoke perfect English, showed me the fascinating sights of this wonderful city, and made the day so very memorable. The guide clearly knows his subject and feeds interesting insights at every turn. Money very well spent. Thank you – I enjoyed it.
