My husband and I requested to peruse the VDNKh and Muzeon Art Park...Absolutely wonderful. We had Kate who filled our minds with the wonder of Moscow and the history as well as much of the architecture in passing! Thorough from beginning to end. While our driver was safe and competent getting us through the city. I was actually depressed when our tour ended but so satisfying to have incredible visuals along with a highly knowledgeable and charming lady. Truly our favorite time there. Thank you Kate and La Vacanza Travel!

We arranged this tour at the start of our first day in Moscow to get an overview of the city. Good driver and a good knowledgeable tour guide. We made six scheduled stops a specific points of interest and we had driver stop and several additional areas we wanted to see.
