Coming to Moscow?  Want to make the most of your time here?
The very first thing you have to learn about Moscow is that it’s a huge city! And exploring it on your own without a private guide can turn out to be a challenge unlike other world capitals. Don’t expect a tourist-friendly infrastructure or the locals understanding English, it’s not the way it is here. Nevertheless, Moscow is a great tourist spot and has lots of wonderful and exciting things to offer, even if they may be not as evident and advertised as in other big cities. That’s why you will surely need a guide who will take you to the most fascinating spots and give you helpful insights on how to get around Moscow.
My name is Maria, and I deliver a wide selection of tours that cater to different groups of visitor. We can start with a classic sightseeing tour including the Red Square, Novodevichy monastery and other prominent historic attractions. If you’re fond of art and culture in general there are several large museums dedicated to classic art as well as many modern art galleries to explore. Not to mention the abundance of shopping spots of all types that will certainly attract any shopping aficionado and give a chance to buy unique or rare goods. As for the night life and general distractions – Moscow never sleeps!
You will certainly find the Russian capital a great and interesting place, especially if you’re visiting during the summer. There are a lot of attractions and street performances in this busy city. However, there are many special places that you will probably miss or find hard to locate without the help of a professional guide and interpreter, since the majority of Russians aren’t very good at English. So let me  help you to get around Moscow and you will see how beautiful and fascinating this enormous city can be if you look at it from the right perspective.

This was a very fun tour and a window onto-some little-seen places in the Chistie Prudi area. I learned a lot from Maria, who told us, for example, why the Chistie Prudi were named "The Clean Ponds"-it's a pretty strange and interesting story! And gave us other interesting, bizarre, and charming tidbits on Moscow and its inhabitants. We saw some lovely sidestreets and ancient houses that I would have not wandered to on my own, as well as taking a sidetrip to see a dovecote with some extraordinary birds in a quiet courtyard-- definitely a well-kept secret! I enjoyed the stories that Maria interspersed as well as her combination of Russian and English tour-guiding, which was instructive and fun for those of us foreigners learning Russian. Atmospheric and interesting tour, charming and interesting tour guide! And she also brought tea and snacks for us :).
