The most amazing thing in this tour is the guide herself “ Tatiana “, She will be very flexible about the places you would like to visit, She will not push you to select any specific places, by another meaning she is “ Aladdin’s lamp” just wish a place to visit and she will bring it into reality. Most importantly, she is too friendly and provides you by any needed information in details.

Daria was more than a tour guide, she was a friend in Moscow, wonderful English, knowledge of moscow and russian history.
I wish we had booked her for longer each day. She even messaged me the day after the tour finished with more trips and help.

My guide, Daria was excellent. She was patient, polite, knowledgeable, kind, well spoken, well dressed, polished young woman. I had an EXCELLENT tour with Daria and she made all the difference in my Moscow stay. I can't say enough about my Moscow experience with Daria for 2 days.

Daria was our lovely guide for our 2-day tour of this fantastic city. She really helped us appreciate all that Moscow has to offer. Very knowlegeable and impeccable English. She planned the days perfectly - from the sites around Red Square out to some of the other neighbourhoods via the amazing Metro system. It was our first time in Moscow - thanks to Daria it certainly will not be our last. Spasibo!
