Our individual tour with Andrey was great. In the days leading up to the tour he was extremely prompt and helpful with providing suggestions forwhat wewould wantto see he in Moscow. Our tour provided a real locals perspective on Moscow.

Riding the Soviet T-55 tank followed by shooting the legendary Kalashnikov AK-47 rifle...need I say more? From picking me up at the railway station on my first day, taking me to my hotel, showing me how to buy tickets at the Kremlin, among other activities I proposed, and, of course, organizing the tank ride and the AK-47 shooting, Andrey exceeded all of my expectations. I was able to see everything I wanted to see and experience everything I wanted to experience. In addition, as I was also going to St. Petersburg and didn't know anyone there, Andrey hooked me up with a friend who provided airport pick up among other things.
All in all, this trip was one of the best trips I've made in my life. If you're going to Moscow and looking for a custom-tailored tour or something off the beaten paths, you can count on Andrey to make that happen!
