A Recent Review of this tour

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!
