We would highly recommend this tour. Our guide, Anya, was very well informed about the places she took us to visit. Anya's English was excellent, as was the pace at which she set the tour, her knowledge of the spots we visited, and the foodstuffs we ate whilst on the tour. Moscow, at this time, was crisp and cold and Anya struck a fine balance between leading us through the streets of Moscow, and into the cafes at which we ate. Our favourite eatery was the Ukrainian restaurant with its wonderful sweet and savoury dumplings, and very good coffee. If you get the chance to do this tour, and have Anya as a guide, you will have made a great decision! Wonderful!
