We were so lucky to have Anton as our host in Moscow during the stay of our Austrian friends.He has made this tour really personal - full of secrets and hidden views, full of stories and incredible locations. The tour is delicately and attentively planned - there are several stops prepared in between the walking, while coffee and fresh bakery add special flair to this day! If you want to feel a bit more local in the city of strangers ask the local to guide you and you will find the other Planet inside the regular Moscow - it is nearly all empty, lid with sun, filled with love and history! the highlights you will never see with a regular sightseeing tour! History, culture, religion and love - a substance I have never received all at once before! Recommended with all my heart!

Anton and Julia were very warm and accommodating guides. They gathered information and thoughtfully crafted our tour to our interests. My only suggestion is that the restaurant choice for lunch did not have much ambience or food that would please most western tourists. I'd recommend going up a level or two in restaurant quality. However, it was for locals which we appreciated.we did love the monastery, though! We wish all the best to Julia and Anton! Marilyn and Asia Hunt

Anton and Julia was the perfect hosts and made the day most enjoyable. They were entertaining and knowledgeable about the places we visited and took us to a little village to meet locals and view the summer houses. Julia is a beautiful lady that makes you feel at home and takes beautiful photos of the day and the experience. We highly recommend going on a trip with them!!

Good way to explore an other part of Moskow, a part you normally do not meet if you follow just the highlights by travel guide books. Good guide Anton

We will explore the very heart of Russia (and its brains as well) — the magnificent Kremlin of Moscow. We will visit the most visited museum in Moscow and we will explore some of the less-visited Kremlin spaces as well. You will have an insider experience, which you will never have if you visit the Kremlin on your own or with an audioguide. Please note, that there are no official museum tours to the Kremlin held in English.
We will meet close to the entrance to the Kremlin territory and after a brief introduction will embark to the journey through different ages and centuries. You will learn a little bit about the history of Russia. You will make your own opinion about medieval Russian and local Games of Thrones.
On our Experience we will explore the main territory of Kremlin, will visit Cathedrals and Chambers, will try to find a Putin's helicopter and a tree, planted by the first man in space (Yury Gagarin) on the next day after he returned from the Outer Space.
We will explore Cathedrals, where Grand Princes of Russia were coronated and where they were buried and we will enjoy the Tsar-Bell which never rang and the Tsar-Cannon, which never fired. We will enjoy the views of Moscow-river and will talk about the Grand Kremlin Palace.
We will have a gorgeous day!

Welcome to Moscow!
My name is Anton and I hope to be your local Moscow tour guide.

I am a licensed English speaking guide in Moscow with the accreditation by the Moscow City Government. I am a member of the Europian Federation of Tourist Guides Associations (FEG) and the World Federation of Tourist Guide Associations (WFTGA). And I am the only certified Culinary Guide in Russia (certification by the World Food Travel Association).

As a certified guide I can be your official guide in the Moscow Kremlin, majority of Moscow museums and art galleries, such as the Armoury Chamber, St. Basil's Cathedral, the Tretyakov Gallery and many others.

I was born in Moscow (back in USSR times) and spent here my very best years. I am a real local, I love to walk around and discover my city since I was a teenager. I lived in different Moscow neighbourhoods and it enriched my knowledge and personal connection with this beautiful city.

I work with travellers since 2015 and have shown my city to hundreds of people from all continents. I'm an avid traveller myself and travelled to more than 50 countries.

My suggestion on having a good time in Moscow:
- Spend your first day on a walking tour to see Moscow Must-Sees: the Kremlin, Red Square and its surroundings and join my Private Food Tour (or we can visit a Russian art museum)
- Having a full day countryside trip to Golden Ring is mandatory!
- Want something different? Let's dive back to USSR: you can explore the Moscow metro, continue with Soviet Expo, called VDNKH, visit a Space Explorers museum and finish a day with a visit to the Cold War underground Bunker.

I offer a wide variety of tours in and around Moscow. I do walking, driving and combination walking/driving tours. My vehicle is a business class Nissan Fuga, 2006 model year. I'm passionate about the history, the traditions, the food, nature observation, Russian politics and the social dynamics. Russia is a complex country, that's true.

All my tours can be customised upon to your request - I have flexible itineraries.
