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!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jim, this is an awesome feedback, many thanks!

Anatoly is a consummate professional. He guided my grandson and I for two days in Moscow, and we were thoroughly impressed and happy with his guiding services. His English is impeccable, and his knowledge of his city is encyclopedic. He helped us get our tickets for the wonderful Kostroma show, and the opera at the Bolshoi. We toured the Kremlin and Red Square, and Anatoly was able to use his guiding skills to get us access to various churches and museums without having to wait in any long lines.

Anatoly was a font of information. His English and French are both perfect. He is warm and answers any and all questions right off the tip of his tongue. His knowledge is encyclopaedic and though we did not try to stump him, I am quite sure we would not have been able to. Lastly, his translations of the lengthy (seemingly endless) tour we had at Monino Airbase was tireless. I highly recommend him to anyone needing a French or English guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marcel I'm very glad I met you and Amy and your friends. It was a pleasure to spend that day and chat with you. I also learnt a lot!) Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity and this wonderful review. My best wishes of happiness, Anatoly

Anatoly was a wonderful guide who assisted us in learning about my favorite Russian authors, Tolstoy and Pasternak. He took us out of town to Peredelkino (Pasternak's grave and dacha) and Tolstoy's house museum in Central Moscow. He was easy to work with by e-mail in setting up this custom tour and was able to modify it when I needed a private car and driver due to a hip injury. His English was impeccable and he was a friendly, knowledgeable guide. We highly recommend him!

I had toured Moscow once before, so I asked Anatoly to take me to sights beyond the usual. He did a great job and packed in more than seemed possible. He used a very good driver (Igor) with who I never had to cringe in Moscow traffic. Anatoly is friendly and quickly became like a friend. Also went beyond the normal to help me with a train ticket issue even though it was 20 minutes beyond what I had signed up for. I like his pick from a menu approach to touring Moscow. Highly recommended.

The only way to see Moscow in a day is with Anatoly. A great amount of thought is given to his schedule with Anatoly checking on traffic conditions etc whilst on the move to ensure that as much as possible is seen without at any point feeling rushed. His local knowledge is immense and told in the most interesting way. During our tour my Mother became ill, Anatoly ensured that her & my father were safely back at the hotel before continuing our tour, nothing was missed. I highly recommend Anatoly.

Tour: Private Tour of Moscow Kremlin, Armoury Chamber and Diamond Fund, Moscow, Moskva, Russia
Date: Jul 26/16

The main reason to get a guide to the Kremlin is to make the visit smooth without hassle over tickets, and to get valuable information. Anatoly fulfilled this requirement. However, in conscience I have to say that this tour is not good value for money. 1. your guide does not enter the Diamond Fund. 2. In Armoury Museum external guide is not allowed 3. plenty of info available in the churches. Kremlin could easily be self guided. Adequate but not great.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Alison, I regret you did not get a perfect tour experience. Due to some personal and practical issues on that day I was not able to deliver my best, I'm sorry.

We did a three-day custom planned tour with Anatoly. He was an excellent guide, thoroughly knowledgeable about all things in Moscow and able to give thoughtful answers to more nuanced questions, which was greatly appreciated, not just "That is a complicated question." We felt he added a lot to our experience and we enjoyed him personally as well. One day he didn't feel well, but he gave us a complete 8-hour day anyway. He was on time, the order of sites toured was sensible and efficient. Kudos to him

Anatoly came on time despite pouring rain; courteous & smiling, suggesting alternatives & solutions. The tour took its full length, with minimal wet moments, maximum benefit from the itinerary & full utilisation of time, places & spaces. Anatoly's info-providing was generous, accurate & satisfying. We finished 30 minutes earlier than scheduled; yet Anatoly insisted on accompanying us to the gift shop, facilitating the communication with the shopkeepers. Great job despite bad conditions; thank you Anatoly

Anatoly was prompt, courteous, accurate, flexible, knowledgeable and generous in his time and explanations. Upon my request, he took us to an excellent tour of Moscow's best kept secrets and in response to a very specific and complicated historical question, he nearly neglected his lunch to give me an excellent historical perspective that was cardinal to understand the existence, evolution and various metamorphoses that led to present-day Moscow. Highly recommended.

This tour just added on to our morning walking tour. We ate lunch with Anatoly and enjoyed his company as well as his information. His tour was extremely effective maximizing our sightseeing during a very short visit to Moscow. His English is impeccable and his knowledge of the sights in the Kremlin and the Armory let him present those places in just the right amount of detail. We would love to have guides with his skill in other places we visit. We will put Tours by Locals high on our list of tours.

Anatoly arrived promptly and began a tour that was very thorough in presenting the sights of central Moscow. We learned the styles and historical causes of the diverse architecture. He guided us through St. Basils and Red Square and even timed our walk to arrive at Changing of the Guard at the tomb with a very short wait for the ceremony to begin. He showed us the renewed and original walls of the city and generally made extremely good use of our very short visit in Moscow.

I had taken the Moscow Day Tour with Anatoly and after a great experience with a personable, knowledgable and friendly guide, I knew I would not be dissapointed with the Magical Lights Tour. He personally took us around in his comfortable transport and were able to see many of the great landmarks around Moscow with time to walk around at the different sites he tailored to my interest. My time in Moscow could not have been more enjoyable and informative without Anatoly's assistance!

A great guided tour by a wonderful guide who's knowledge, efficiency and tailoring the tour of Moscow to my interest was second-to-none! I would not hesitate recommending Anatoly for anyone looking for a full-day of sightseeing within the city center as well as Moscow's periphery. I do not believe I could have seen and experienced everything I did without his assistance. His City Lights tour is also not to be missed!

Abbiamo avuto la fortuna di prenotare un tour con Anatole durante il nostro soggiorno a Mosca. E' stata un'esperienza sicuramente ottima. Anatole è stato quanto di meglio ci si poteva aspettare come guida : gentile, preparato, puntuale e con UNA CONOSCENZA QUASI PERFETTA DELLA LINGUA ITALIANA. Con la sua auto confortevole (Land Rover Discovery) abbiamo girato per tutta Mosca oltre la 1:00 di notte, scoprendo aspetti indimenticabili di una stupenda città. Consigliamo sicuramente agli Italiani questa guida

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Livio, grazie, questo è troppo gentile! Anch'io ho conservato un bellissimo ricordo di quel giro.

My wife and myself had Anatoly for the whole day tour in Moscow. He showed us all the must see of Moscow starting from 8 at our hotel to 5 . We have travelled numerous countries and joined numerous tours and I can assure you that you will not regret with Anatoly. He was very patient courteous and professional in his duties as a tour guide. After a couple of hours with us he knew our likings and veered the days tour to the areas we prefer. We wouldn't have covered such a huge area without him. Great guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear James, I enormously enjoyed the day myself, you and your wife were so kind and resourceful. Thank you!

We had a fantastic day with Antoly in Moscow and are happy to recommend this tour. His knowledge of the city, it's architecture, history and culture helped us to learn so much in one day. Antoly met us exactly on time at our hotel with a clean, smart and comfortable 4x4 and having a tour by car also meant that we could very easily visited lots of sites beyond just the central area. His excellent language skills and explanations helped us pick up things we would have missed without a guide. Thank you!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jim, I'm so grateful to you for choosing me as your guide and for your very kind assessment. I had a great day too with you and your beautiful family.

Our guide Anatoly was excellent - he had great knowledge of the city, perfect English and was courteous and helpful. We hadn't eaten when he picked us up and took us to a local café for breakfast, helped arrange concert tickets and gave us a lesson on how to use the Metro system - this was on top of an excellent tour of Moscow in the comfort of his car. I would thoroughly recommend this tour and Anatoly as a tour guide. 5 out of 5 - couldn't have been any better.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Elizabeth, thank you for your kind words! I enjoyed being with you and your party. My best wishes, Anatoly

Anatoly was great! He had a command of the sites and hstory and was very personable. We shared the entire day and drove to outer city sites; excellent. We shared lunch at a local buffet and had a good meal near the Kremlin which was inexpensive. I highly recommend this tour/guide and once of the best I have hired. His English was terrific and his knowledge of our culture and needs was wonderful. Highly endorsed.

Tour: River Cruise on Moskva-river, Moscow, Moskva, Russia
Date: Aug 8/13

There was a misunderstanding about the cruise being 10.30 pm, when I thought I was booking for 10.30 am. We therefore had to squeeze this tour into the previous day's tour. It ended up being a rushed 40 minute trip round the central island / canal and was not very good nor good value for money.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It had been agreed by the customer in advance that the river cruise would be added up to the day tour and it would make the tour 1 hour (60 minutes) longer. The actual "river" part lasted indeed about 40-50 minutes (I cannot recall exactly now) and was in the plan. The river cruise was exactly the same as I had done before with other customers, and I apologize that I probably had not make it absolutely clear to the customer that it would have that itinerary and would last that long.

Anatoly was very knowledgeable and hospitable. His Landrover Discovery was perfect for my family of 5 people. He looked after us very well and we gained a good introduction to Moscow and how to do the rest of your visit over the following few days. He also showed us how to use the Metro which was really helpful too. I would thoroughly recommend him. The tour was also very good value for money and easy and efficient to set up

My wife and I would definitely give Anatoly 5 out of 5. He is exceptionally knowledgeable not only about the sights of Moscow but also history and world affairs. His ability to reel off names and dates was very impressive. I was concerned that a tour by car during the day would be a problem in Moscow traffic but in practice it was a big advantage as we were able to combine the walking tour of the main sights in Central Moscow with a trip around some of the most ornate metro stations. Highly recommended.

Great communication skills, knowledgable, flexible, personable, thoughtful, experienced, insightful, engaging, unselfish, intellectual, friendly, and committed to deliver highest level of service. I spent 9 hours with Anatoly and he tolerated my (frequent) need to stop and take photos. He offered options and recommendations. And he accepted my request for the tour despite less than 24 hrs notice. I would go 6 stars if I could.
