John B: We had a wonderful time on our Moscow tour! Or tour guide, Svetlana, was very knowledgeable and I think she got the sense we wanted to see as much as we could in the short time we were there because she did a great job of making sure we saw everything! Guide Guru is a very professional company and I would recommend them to anybody! 
DiDiMai100Svetlana and Svetiana were very attentive and patience with our group while trying to stay on schedule. Some people in our group needed more restroom breaks. Some were interested mostly in pictures but both guides were very polite to keep us on schedule. We enjoyed good lunches with very reasonable prices at their recommendations.We were very apprehensive about the logistics for the day in Moscow but Guide Guru took care of all the details. We got a cell phone for emergency contact. The guides took us to the coach just to make sure we got on the correct trains both ways. 
I learned a lot and had a very memorable experience of the sights, the scenes, and the history of these 2 cities. The 3 drivers were excellent but I don't remember their names. Natalia was very patience also to my many questions during the booking process. The price was certainly lower than other competitors' especially for a private tour. Thanks all at Guide Guru. You exceeded my expectations.
