It was an amazing experience. Very recommended. Victoria and Larisa were very friendly and showed lots of knowledge of the city and designed the tour following my interests in the city. Also perfect english. The weather helped it a lot beacuse it was not so cold. Moscow would not have been so good if it wasn't for them. Thank you so much :)
