Reviews of this tour

  • We had just a few hours in Moscow making a connection between the 2 airports before our grand European adventure, and thanks to CheapRussia we managed to make the most of it. Besides the transfer itself, we had a guided tour of Kremlin and major sites around it. Our guide Mike was awesome, as well as the Russian history and culture, so we are looking forward to our next trip to Russia.

    Thanks to our Russian partners we enjoyed a brief guided tour of Moscow after the busy working day. We stayed in Moscow on a business trip for just 2 days and are really glad that this tour allowed us to see at least a bit of the capital. The following evening an Italian-speaking guide accompanied us on a boat trip on Moscow river – quite an experience!..

    I was visiting Moscow on business but had a few hours off and decided to use them to get acquainted with the country and its people. After a short web-research I came upon CheapRussia which really satisfied me both in terms of both quality and pricing. The guide knew his job really well and I had a nice impression of the city.

    I came to Moscow for an international exhibition and, as I have never been to the city before, I browsed through web and decided to apply to CheapRussia to organize my stay. They mastered their task really well, and, in addition to my business travel package, I decided to purchase a private evening tour of the city that turned out to be a 1st class experience.
