Anatoly I.

Moscow, Russia

Hi, my name is Anatoly. It has always been a great pleasure for me to take friends around and out of Moscow to share my passion for the places I love.

Whether you visit Moscow for the first time or have been here before, there are always wonders to discover. So, along with showing the world-famous must-see sights such as Red Square and The Kremlin, I love engaging my guests to go off the beaten path and venture into inconspicuous side streets to explore Moscow's authentic beauties and treasures.

Looking for treasures I'll also be proud to open the doors of Moscow's best museums to you. Just let me know your interests, there is everything here: royal jewellery and French impressionists, old Russian icons and space ships!

VERY IMPORTANT: In case you don't find the tour you were looking for, please send me a request and I'll be pleased to build a customised tour for you!

Here are some suggestions for cultural and entertaining visits in Moscow and around which may also be included in day tours or done as separate tours:

A Recent Review of this guide

Anatoly was a fantastic tour guide. He provided a private tour for me, my son, and my two nephews. He was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and provided us with a great tour. If in Moscow, definitely seek him out. He speaks English fluently and was great at getting us to the front of the line. The Kremlin was especially crowded on the day we visited however he gently got us to the front of the line and into the Kremlin within minutes. Looking forward to our next tour with him!
