We choose Daniel, as he was willing to take us places other than those in his list for some of those we were already doing with Viking. We also figured that by the end of the trip we would be overloaded with churches and palaces. Thus Daniel can up with interesting places both within and outside of Moscow. No only does he speak excellent English but is capabable of thought provoking discussions concerning any topic abouyt which we wished to know. We would highly recommend his services.
