A Recent Review of this tour

To rate Anatoly with a 5 star is an understatement. My husband and I have been booking private guides from ToursByLocals in our numerous travels around the world in the last 3 years. By far we have not met a PERFECT Guide in all aspects as Anatoly! Our two travel mates in Moscow rate him "EXCELLENT"!
