I cannot say enough positive things about Vadim! My parents and I visited both Moscow and St. Petersburg with him. His communication leading up to our visit was prompt and thorough. I felt like I had a friend waiting for us Russia before we even arrived. His knowledge of Russian history and culture is exceptional and made for many interesting conversations - we learned so much. He was sensitive to our interests and shared in our excitement. He made a once in a lifetime trip the best it could possibly be.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Katie, Thank you very much for these great words! It is always a pleasure for to visit Moscow, the city where I was born. I do think that to spend one day in Moscow is more impressive than to spend a day in Saint Petersburg as Moscow is more “Russian” more “original”. I am very glad you liked the tour. I hope to see you again someday! Kind Regards, Vadim P.S. I saw Hamilton musical (online). It was great, thank you! Of course it would be much more difficult for me without English subtitles;)

This was a fantastic tour by far the best of all our tours, Vadim was marvellous he went way above what we expected of him. Larissa in Moscow was fabulous also, both very patient, knowledgeable and kind with four New Zealanders (Kiwis!), St Petersburg to Moscow and back was a long day 18 hours in total and 8 hours in St Petersburg the following day but worth every cent and the time, we (all four of us) would definitely recommend it. Thank you so much both of you we would love to see you again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Diane, Thank you very much for the feedback! I am very glad you liked Moscow, my hometown! And it is really great that you could see the Day of Moscow: very often I celebrate my birthday together with birthday of Russia! Thank you very much for your presents! Happy travels! Kind Regards, Vadim
