A Recent Review of this tour

We (3 seniors 65 to 90) throughly enjoyed our full day Moscow tour. Daniel mixed the touring between driving and walking and added personal stories of growing up in Moscow with photos to add additional insight to the sights and history. We did the major sights and then went farther afield to the sparrow hills and Novodichy convent. We would definitely take another tour with Daniel if we return to Moscow. If you have a special interest,he is more than willing to customize tour.
