Tour by Nikita

My name is Nikita. I am an at-historian, a tour guide and a photographer living in Moscow.
I was also living in Saint-Petersburg for 5 years.
I am doing tour for 3.5 years now. First in Saint-Petersburg and for the past 2.5 years in Moscow.
We will see the best parts of Moscow according to your wishes - the main history sights, most impressive landmarks, best places for photos, nicest viewpoints, most wonderful local cafes, restaurants and bars. I can also recommend you best clubs, museums, art-galleries, help you get tickets to Bolshoi etc.
We will see the best Russian/Georgian/Armenian food places where you can try Russian cuisine and cuisine of ex-Soviet republics.
We will walk through the most interesting streets of Moscow and see the hidden wonders of the city.
We will use metro, bus, sometimes even boat or a cable car to reach the most interesting sights Moscow can offer.
We can suit the tour to your wishes - we can make a stronger emphasis on great photos, on specifically Soviet history, Tsars Russia or contemporary life of Russians. Or just mix it all to get a great overview of the life of Russians in total:)

Check availability of the tour:


I meet you in the lobby of your centrally located hotel at the time, when it's most convenient for you. We wander off down by Tverskaya street of the 12th century towards the red marvel of Russia - Kremlin. You will be astonished by the look of the St. Basil's Cathedral and wowed by the crazy stories of Minin & Pozharsky.

We will walk down to the river to admire a breathtaking view of the city from a "Flying Bridge". The photos are incomparable!:)
We move towards GUM and stop there for a quick coffee or tea at the soviet cafes on the top floor of the oldest shopping mall of Russia filled with luxury shops of all kinds now.

We then go to the Bolshoi theatre (and maybe even get you a ticket for the evening performance:), then to the viewpoint to see Moscow as birds do.

From the thrilling ex-KGB offices down to one of the best Russian cuisine cafes of Moscow. A wonderful rest after a full day...But wait - it's only half of the tour, we go deep underground to see some of the most beautiful metro stations of Moscow, exit nearby marvellous gems of Christ the Saviour cathedral and through the Gorky Park we end in Red October district filled with cafes and bars of all kind (or at your hotel).
