My tour guide Kate was AMAZING! She is super knowledgeable about the rich history and culture of Russia, she knows the ins and outs of the whole tour to escape the crowd and bring you to the local gems of Moscow. Thanks to Kate for customizing the agenda and itinerary before the tour and I had a better understanding of Russia/Moscow and thoroughly enjoyed the sights of the beautiful landmarks of Moscow! If you want to live like a local for 5 hours, try this tour!

Kate, my tour guide, knew so much about the history and architecture of Moscow, which she shared throughout our many amazing activities: visiting Lenin’s tomb, watching the Saturday horse show on the Kremlin grounds, learning how to use the metro, and eating at an authentic Georgian restaurant. I really appreciated her energy, enthusiasm, and insider’s knowledge. So worth the cost of the tour!!
