My sister and me visited Moscow for a few days and decided to book this tour with Sputnik. We were not really sure what to expect, but it turned out to be fantastic! Olga is a very good, dedicated and enthusiastic guide with a lot of knowledge of Moscow. Olga tells much more than just the regular stories. Also her english is excellent! Besides this tour, we also booked the "modern art" - and Kremlin tour. Again, guided by Olga! We had a great time!
