On this tour we will see all the main must-see sights plus some off-the-beaten-track areas of Moscow.
With our degrees in art-history and a significant guiding experience we are sure to know the places and the stories, that even locals may have never heard of.

We are also into the food culture of Moscow, so we know the best cafes and restaurants of the city. Some of them we can visit on the tour. And we deliberately avoid touristy restaurants, where locals would never go. "Only genuine experiences" is our motto.

Of course, we will recommend you what to do after the tour: best museums, bars, clubs, parks etc.

Our priority is the best personalised experience. Every single one.
So, be sure, we can customise our tour according to your wishes.
We are more than just some tour guides, consider us your friends in a new city:)

Please note, that it's a walking tour (+ public transport or taxi).
If you would like this tour to be on a car, notify us in advance and we'll organise it.

It was a wonderful tour! We have different guide for each day, it just happened that they both call Kate?. We love this tour as you can customize it with your guide to fit your plan and physical fitness. We’ve been to many interesting places, eg the Kremlin( not in the itinerary but they were so kind to arrange it with additional entrance fee), the Red Square, the wooden Kremlin, a few lovely metro stations, the former KGB headquarters, etc. We highly recommend this tour, our guides are so knowledgeable and helpful. What a magical memory! Thank you Kate and Nikita!
