Customer Reviews about St.Basil's Cathedral and Red Square: Private Tour and Ticket
  • Ryan Short
    Nina was an absolute treasure to have as a guide. Incredibly knowledgeable and so much passion for Russia's capital Moscow and it's history. Thoroughly enjoyed my one-on-one experience, highly recommend. The tour of Trinity Church (apparently this was the original name of Saint Basil Cathedral) was very interesting and insightful. Thank you, Nina!
  • Elizabeth Dalton
    This was our first visit to Moscow and It was made a truly memorable visit by our guide Sergey Lutskovsky. I would compel anyone to ask for him personally as his dedication to ensuring you not only enjoy his tour but also have a bit of a laugh whilst doing it. During this tour we learned about the intricacies of Ivan IV (known to most as Ivan the Terrible), the story of construction of St.Basil Cathedral, the Khanate of Kazan and so much more. I would not hesistate to recommend Sergey personally as a guide but also the company, easy booking process and great response to requests. I wish I could take Sergey to St.Petersburg with us!)

    Nina picked us up from our hotel, gave us a fascinating two-hour guided walk around Red Square and St Basil's, with great stories and history en route. We all were enthralled by the Saint Basil Cathedral Tour and she made it especially interesting for our 7-year old grandson. She was kind enough to travel with us to our lunch venue. Highly recommended.
