Outstanding Moscow tour guide
Julia Koval is an outstanding guide! (she operates under Lovely Moscow Tours)
I have dealt with multiple guides worldwide and Julia definitely stands out.

As the leader of our group, Julia impressed me from the moment we met. She immediately listened and adapted the visit plan to my specific preferences and to the diverse and challenging needs of our group — adults of all ages and a child.

From that moment on, she expertly led us through the extra crowded metro system to visit all requested sites in an optimal order, using her impeccable organizational and logistical skills.

Her expertise allowed us to optimize our day, intelligently whizzing through this maze to multiple sites spread out all over this large city.

She masters 5 essential skills that made our time with her memorable:
1- A true Passion - for her city its history, and its contemporary aspects,
2- A deep Dedication - to satisfying her customers with warmth and attention,
3- An impressive Capability to Adapt - to the specific needs of her customers,
4- A great Historical Knowledge - paired with today’s affairs in all subjects,
5- An excellent set of organizational and soft leadership skills.

We adored her!

Perfect Tour
Ksenia led a group of 4 of us on a fascinating and fun tour of the Moscow metro. Her English is great and her knowledge fund is outstanding! She knows how to make a tour interesting as we simultaneously shared laughs and insight into a local's perspective on this beautiful and unique city. She also gave us great food and drink recommendations, and was a blast to be around. I have been on all types of tours in many different countries, and having Ksenia as a tourguide was definitely memorable! Enjoy!

The itinerary is well planned and organised! And Ksenia is great!
We enjoyed the Moscow At Night with Ksenia a lot! Ksenia is an amazing guide, she is bubbly, kind and helpful. Her fantastic stories, great knowledge and funny jokes about the amazing history and culture of Russia made it interesting and fun. The itinerary was well planned and organised too. Thanks again for making our first trip in Moscow unforgettable, we are already looking at options to book again in the foreseeable future. Pedro & Anais

Best way to learn about Moscow
Ksenia took us on a private tour of the Moscow Metro and completely opened my mind on this amazing city and the country's history. The tour was so good that a year later we are using Ksenia's services again! In a couple of hours you get a comprehensive overview of Russia, insight into her people and lots of fascinating stories to tell friends about after the tour.

I feel very bad I forgot the guides name... I thinks it was Andre.... he seemed like a very fun guy.... he really knows his stuff... extremely patient.... and a good sense of humour.... it’s because of him I understood the metro system so well .... and have used it for my entire trip.... I recommend everyone to go for this trip hosted by Moscow me...

Julia was wonderful
Julia is a charming snd extremely knowledgeable guide. Our first two days in moscow were made easy with julia showing us how to use the metro (not easy when its in Russian!) Also taking us to places not on the usual tourist trail. We were sorry to say goodbye when our organized tour commenced. We would recommend very highly

Perfect walking tours
Moscow is a beautiful city and you learn so much more when you’re introduced to it by such a wonderfully knowledgeable guide as Ksenia. The free tour at midday was so fascinating I booked the Back in the USSR tour that evening which was a delight. So much to see. I absolutely recommend MoscowMe to anyone visiting the city.

Let's get the party started
Awesome night with awesome people. We were 4 friends and met a lot of incredible people (from Russia, India and Kazakhstan). The two guys in charge of the organisation are really full of life and deliver plenty of good vibes! Last piece of advice: Do not forget to smile, pictures last forever ;)

The company and in particular Maxim our guide were excellent. Maxim was on time and exceedingly knowledgeable of the Kremlin. He efficiently got us through the system and the crowds. Providing a good commentary along the way. Highly helpful introduction to the complex.
