Katya was right on time. Picked us up at our hotel. She was so very friendly and knowledgeable! She took us to 11 stations and each and every one was stunning. She gave us a thorough understanding of the metro system and the amazing way it began. She pointed out so many interesting pieces of information and history. We enjoyed our time spent with Katya in the subway so much we purchased a book the following day on the Moscow Metro. If you get the chance to take this trip with Katya grab it and hang on! She was great!

Our group of 5 really enjoyed the tour. Our tour guide took us through the metro system with ease and was very knowledgeable not only about the history of these very opulent and beautiful stations, but the history of the country in general. Highly recommend!!

It was a nice experience to have the metro tour with our guide Oleg. We are very much impressed by the way he explained the characteristics and theme of each metro station to us. He also explained the unique constructional and architectural features of each of the stations. He took us to several stations belonging to different radial lines and the circular line.

Absolutely brilliant. We were taken to 10 different stations by our helpful tour guide and were given plenty of time to take photos. Was given interesting information about the symbolistic artwork and history. Also we were able to request where we wanted to be ‘dropped off’ at the end of the tour.
