Highly recommended this tour when in Moscow! Authentic and real Russian banya atmosphere. Our guide Dmitry provided us all the necessary background and made our visit to Sanduny an unforgettable experience.
The Sanduny Baths have been around since 1808 and should not be missed if you have time for a leisurely afternoon/evening in Moscow. Taking the guide was essential for me as most of the attendants in the baths do not speak any language but Russian, so an English speaking guide who explained everything was essential for me.
