Julia was a wonderful guide and I highly recommend her. Not only was she extremely knowledgeable and showed us what we wanted to see, plus much more, but we enjoyed her company. It was like we were meeting a friend in Moscow. We wanted to have dinner in the city before our tour and Julia made a reservation for us and met us at the restaurant when we finished dinner.
ulia was very professional and knowledgeable. She showed up to our hotel and took us to many places of great touristic relevance. She even accommodated us when we asked to stop by a cafe and get breakfast. Highly recommended!

When you have so little time and the only thing you want to see is the diamonds ... Thank you Julia for broadening our scope. We loved the stories of the old Russian tears and the societal commentary you provided throughout our tour. From little insights of lazy russians who had not yet taken down Xmas decorations to going the extra miles to get us in to the diamond fund we were so grateful to have had you as our guide. Your thoughtful rest stops for my elderly MIL were much appreciated.

Julias tour of the amazing Moscow Metro was informative as it was visually stimulating. This maze of a metro is beautiful and with so many stations be prepared to lose a little shoe leather. Luckily I had my 77 year old Mother in Law with me who I could use as an excuse to claim a seat or a rest break and Julia adjusted accordingly with no problem. Julias knowledge of the history and also her social commentary of Muscovites in general was fantastic and gave us a real sense of the culture behind the people
Very knowledgeable and interesting tour of the metro and gave a fantastic insight of Russian culture and lifestyle. Strongly recommend her and would definitely go with her again.

Julia was a fabulous guide. She is so knowledgeable and we felt very comfortable and confident in her company. She also spent time ensuring we were armed ready for the next few days to go it alone too. We would definitely recommend Julia.

Julia was a wonderful guide. She made sure we saw everything, and is very knowledgeable about Moscow history. Coordinating the tour was easy, and Julia handled everything so it went smoothly. I would highly recommend taking a tour with her.

We had never been to Moscow, so we booked Julia T. to be our private guide for the week. Unlike a tour group, where you are on their schedule, Julia worked with us to show us everything we wanted to see. From greeting us at the airport to arranging a very difficult tour to the Kabinka tank museum (some 100 miles south of Moscow), Julia was wonderful. She arranged activities that gave us the maximum Moscow experience! Julia was much more our friend in Moscow than just a guide. Mark and Donna

Julia was very helpful. She spent time going over everything I expected for the day and went quite a bit beyond that and added other attractions that she picked were in my interest. Good listeners and engaged conversersation where she added much history. She was not a fan of some uses of the travel book referencing, but it all worked out well. Very good English language.

Our tour with Julia started well with good info/stories. However, on our boat tour, we had requested 2 things: info on what we were seeing & for her to take photos of us with our own cameras. Julia was more interested in taking her own photos & never took any of us & even mentioned she did guiding to help build her photography business. We had to point out sights and ask for info & by the end of the tour, she was barely talking to us. The price of the tour was not reasonable for the services we received.

Very interesting trip with a very nice guide. Julia was very knowledgeable on the places that we went. She was very interesting and very engaging. I know that without her I would not have seen half of what I did. I can't thank her enough for the tour.

julia created a tour of the Novodivitchy Convent/Cemetery and the subway for us. It cost the same as the half day bus excursion offered by our cruise company but was far better (our peers saw 3 subways, we saw 10 for example) Julia is fluent in English, personable and helped see just what we wanted to see. Because of the day with her, we were equipped to use the subway on our own for the rest of our stay. Great experience. I highly recommend her.
Julia was an excellent guide! Her knowledge of the history and culture of Moscow is extensive, and her English is perfect. She is easy-going and fun to be with! Our family of four enjoyed our time with her. Thanks Julia!
Julia was very knowledgeable and knew the detailed history of the Moscow Metro. It was a fascinating tour and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. Very enjoyable. Thank you.
Friendly, approachable and knowledgable. Nice introduction to Moscow. Thank you Julia.

I had a really good time visiting Moscow and my tour guide, Julia was charming, funny and very sweet. She took me to many beautiful sites and I really had a wonderful time. Thanks Julia for an awesome tour of your beautiful city.
We have had a wonderful and interesting tour with Julia yesterday afternoon. Julia was so helpful and showed us all the fantastic stations and explained so much. She was so pleasant, knowledgeable and a pleasure to be with. I rate her services very highly and wish Julia all the best in her guiding career. Thanks again, Julia

If you need a photographer in Moscow who are flexible and outstandig you have here the best one ! any time again... :-)
Julia knew so much and her english was perfect. We walked everywhere, i mean everywhere and saw everything we could see. It was very cold! The metro is very interesting.
I took this tour with Julia on my second day in Moscow (I also had an amazing photo walk with her the day before) and decided to add on a photography session for the tour. We went to red square and the Kremlin as well as many souvenir shops, traditional lunch in the gum department store and a walk through some beautiful streets. Julia is a great tour guide and knows her way around very well. She made my Moscow trip exceed all my expectations and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to everyone else! :)
I booked this tour for my first day in Moscow and was a bit nervous since I was traveling alone to Russia and didn't know the language. Julia is an absolutely amazing tour guide! I was comfortable with her straight away and she is very friendly. she clearly knows a lot about Moscow and the fact that she does the photography along the way is a huge bonus!we managed to fit in a great deal of sight seeing and a very tasty lunch. Definitely recommended!!

Absolutely brilliant, could not have hoped for better. Having a guide who not only knows everything about all the sights / history / legends etc. but who knows how to take excellent photos as well was just perfect. Yulia is also just a very interesting and impressive person full stop, great to chat with. Note to anybody making a booking - you absolutely MUST go to VVC, I didn't know about it until Yulia suggested it, and it was indescribably epic (more so than Red Square in fact)! Highlight of the trip.
Excelente!!! Knows a lot and takes care of you!

Julia is an excellent guide and sweet person. She went out of her way to assure that our visit exceeded our expectations. As an added bonus, she is a skilled photographer and provided us with many beautiful photos as a reminder and showcase of the amazing and beautiful place, people and history that is modern Russia. Огpомное спасибо! Yulia

What a fantastic afternoon. Julia was helpful, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and made sure we were all well looked after. We went to the local market to purchase our ingredients for the borsch cooking which we cooked under supervision from Julia, then ate and really enjoyed what we had created. We also learnt a lot about Russian culture. Fantastic... Brilliant... Superb, thank you very much Julia. Would definitely do it again!!!
The Russian Borsch Cooking Tour was a wonderful experience. We booked it just a few days before travelling to Moscow for a long weekend and it was the highlight of our trip. We enjoyed the borsch we cooked with the help of Julia, our great hostess, along with the other little surprises she had prepared for us. We also had a lot of fun and learnt a lot about Russian culture - exactly what we were hoping for. Спасибо Julia!
fast, flexible & perfectly arranged!
