JournalKat7: We took a day trip from St. Petersburg to Moscow with Sergei. He was fantastic! He was incredibly knowledgeable, professional, friendly, interesting, and instructive. He modified our itinerary accordingly based on our preferences (it was raining so we wanted to rearrange the schedule a bit). He utilized the Moscow metro to avoid sitting in hours of traffic, he answered absolutely every one of our questions and expanded on the answers, and he took us to the most delicious (and shockingly affordable) Russian lunch place in GUM. We really felt like we covered a lot of ground and learned an immense amount about the country in a relatively short time. Guide Guru was pricey but competitive and truly worth the cost. I would absolutely use them again."  
David C.: We were extremely impressed and satisfied with Guide Guru! Upon disembarking we were met by Sergey, a very pleasant and professional driver who took us to the airport in order to fly to Moscow. When we arrived in Moscow, our guide met us with a big smile and gave us the tour of a lifetime. I have traveled to over 40 countries and I must say that the best tour has been the Moscow tour. We saw all the highlights, learned a lot about Russian history and culture, but also got a inside perspective that is rarely possible. Every member of the Guide Guru team was friendly, responsible, and professional! I will recommend this tour to all of my friends and I hope to enjoy Guide Guru's services again in the future!!!
