We had an amazing tour with Nikita. It was a Friday night and the city was busy but he was prepared and still took us to some amazing places. The local beer was a real treat but my favorite was definitely the vodka and snacks. It wasn't just about the drinks and food the restaurant was awesome. It was very Soviet inspired with classic memorabilia all over the walls. What a treat! I would highly recommend this tour and specifically Nikita as a guide! He spoke wonderful English and knows the history of this amazing city so well.
Ekaterina was a lovely guide, very friendly, welcoming and engaging. She fetched us bright and early from our hotel and looked after us the entire day. The trip to Sergiev was lovely - a city with much religious importance, as we're taught about the historical churches and christian religion. Ekaterina was very knowledgeable in the matter.
We had such a great time with Elena on our tour around Moscow. She was very knowledgeable about the food and drinking culture in Moscow and it was such fun trying out the vodka infusions and traditional food. By the end of it we were all friends. I also really enjoyed seeing memorabilia from Soviet times. Highly recommend!
It was very well organized- very comfortable car, great intelligent guide. We spent a bit of extra time in the traffic driving there due to the road construction but it was still ok. The monastery is magnificent and the guide Vladimir made our trip great experience.
The monastery and banya trip were both excellent. The activities itself felt very interesting and made Russian culture a bit closer to us. It was a pleasure to be guided by Timur and Anton - excellent guides and lovely, warm and friendly people. Well recommended!
