We are a family of 4 that enjoys traveling a lot.

This was our first trip to Russia and Moscow and La Vacanza Travel and Friendly Local Guides did a great job with this tour. Tatiana and Lucy were excellent guides who knew the city very well. Both spoke very fluent English. We particularly enjoyed those little stories and legends about places that we visited. Their suggestions of itineraries, places to eat and where to shop were highly appreciated.

They were really friendly and made the tour very enjoyable!

We were a bit hesitant about visiting Russia, with the political events transpiring around us, but we were immediately put at ease by Anastasia. She was a real honey and tried her best to show us as much of her beloved city as we could take in. We walked about 30 km in the 2 days, but never noticed as we were entranced by the beauty surrounding us. She took us to unforgettable places like St Basil's, the Kremlin with it's magnificant cathedrals. What a surprise! Then the armoury, which was breath-taking. GUM was amazing, around the fantastic Metro stations and eventually to old Arbat street where she steered us away from the normal exorbitantly priced souvenir shops. She arranged restaurants to cater for my wife's gluten and lactose intolerances, which had been a major worry. Our very best thanks to Anastasia. She was amazing and made our trip a trip of a lifetime.

We had planned a four day stopover in Moscow as part of a larger trip and wanted more than just a look at Red Square and a few monuments. We were looking for a glimpse of the real Moscow, where people live, how they live, what do they do and we felt that a private tour would enable us to get to know the guide plus we could be more flexible in where we went. Julia on day one and Liana on day two both delivered up to our expectations.
We toured neighborhoods, small parks, the amazing Metro stations, the Space Park, stopping along the way to explore Pushkin's history, neighborhood food markets, Stalins Seven Sisters and on and on.
Both guides were knowledgeable, able to explain in a straightforward way the things we were visiting and went out of their way to make sure we saw everything.
We enjoyed our time with them, would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to get a feeling for Moscow which we feel that we did.
