I loved this tour!
Our guide Marina was extremely personable and was able to share some interesting anecdotes about living in soviet russia. The tour was very informative and wasn't too taxing, the walking helped us stay warm in sub-zero Moscow. One of the most fascinating stories was how the government modernised the city centre in the 30s without destroying any buildings - they cut their foundations and moved whole buildings on rails, with the people still inside, to allow the creation of the wide boulevards and roads in the city today. If you're curious about early soviet history, I'd definitely recommend this tour.

A very interesting tour of Moscow's different periods of time, starting from the transition from Tsarist rule to the Soviet regime and until the present days of capitalism. The tour emphasizes the contrasts, sometimes absurd, of the use of certain areas and buildings in central Moscow, throughout different times. What makes the tour particularly fascinating was the passion of our sharp and delightful guide, Irina, to her hometown and her sharing of her and her family's personal experiences in the extreme changing realities of life in Moscow. The tour is highly recommended for anyone visiting Moscow!

Incredible and insightful
Although there was confusion originally with the tour’s starting time, it turned out to be incredible. It ran slightly over the time allotted however this was of no bother or concern for the group who felt incredibly included and valued. It covered many interesting aspects of Moscow and I would highly reccomend it to anyone else.
