We got lost on the way to the meeting point but our guide waited for us which was much appreciated. We were the only people on the tour so he was able to tailor it to suit our needs. It was very useful having someone to explain the details in the Lenin mausoleum and the metro station, and to give us a potted history of communist Russia.

Great private tour with Natalia. She's so knowledgeable, friendly and likeable - I can't recommend her enough. I loved my time in Moscow with her. Will definitely book her again when I'm visiting again. Thanks Natalia - you made my day very special.
