Daria gave me a fabulous tour of the district and museum. She knew I was tight on time and was perfectly prompt beginning and ending. We traveled from the Marriott NOVY Arbat through the subway. She provided history and I petted the bronze dog's nose! We walked through the Zamoskvorechye district which had rich history. I knew very little about it. In them museum, Daria discussed the infuential paintings that I should know about. I was very impressed. She also moved around the museum easily and smoothly. This museum has great Russian art. It is displayed so well. Daria is very easy to understand. She likes to give night tours, behind the scenes of Moscow and Metro tours as well. Our trip back on the subway and through the Arbat to my hotel worked out perfectly. I strongly recommend this tour.
