I had a very short time in Moscow and wanted to get a good overview of the city sites complemented by history, culture and food. My guide Dasha met me promptly at the hotel. She had excellent suggestions on how to maximize the time and adjust the tour to my interests. We started near Red Square and then walked through Kitai Gorod and back to Red Square to see St Basil's and the GUM up close. We then went on the Metro circle line and stopped at several stations to see the post-revolution living art. She reminded me that the Metro is classified as a museum ... for good reason. We then headed to Novodevichy monastery area where we had a Georgian hachapuri and dumpling lunch. After getting tickets to the Kremlin, we said our goodbyes. It was the best half day tour I have taken!

The tour was fantastic! Irina met us on time at our hotel and she was fluent in English. We had previously emailed her to purchase tickets to the Kremlin and the Armory. Irina was a wealth of information and she told us the history behind everything we passed. The best tour with the best guide!

Our guide met us in our hotel lobby and after meet and greet we sat down and went through the tour. Her English was very good and we got to see many different beautiful sights of Moscow and try authentic Russian cuisine at a local restaurant. The guide was excellent and I highly recommend this tour.
