A great and informative tour from the moment the friendly guide picked me up at the hotel. He had lots to tell about Moscow and the sights - a great insight into life. As there is not much explanation in English at the Space Museum, it was great to have someone to show me around. A local is always the way to go! Highly recommend!
Excellent guide, well informed. Great tour
A fantastic tour of the cosmos, with an exceptional guide. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Well worth it.
