I did the tour with Sveta. She explained everything so well. Her knowledge is legendary. Thoroughly enjoyed seeing the architecture. Lovely lady with lots of patience. It was a fun outing. Would use her again.

Fascinating architectural tour of Stalin's Seven Sisters - my guide was very knowledgable and candid about Stalin's legacy and construction methods/timetables.

Was given the opportunity to inspect the current lobby of the Hotel Ukraina (now Radisson Hotel) and plenty of time to discuss other Moscow landmarks whilst we were moving between the buildings. My guide had excellent english speaking skills and it was great to be picked up from my hotel lobby. Would definitely recommend this tour!
