Elena and Oksana were both excellent guides. Elena met me at my hotel and walked me to the Bolshoi Theatre where we met Oksana. The tour is definitely worth it. I found it to be interesting and entertaining. I had opera tickets that evening so it was excellent to find out the details of the theatre prior to attending.
