Former clients share their travel experience to Moscow Russia after using services of the private guide and personal driver Arthur Lookyanov. This message archive was started in 2002.
I would just like to add my own testimonial to the great service that Arthur provides.
The schedule for my business trip was challenging - many meetings in only two full days with the additional request of seeing as much of the key sights of Moscow as time would allow.
Having not been to Moscow or Russia before, it would have been difficult and stressful to even find my way around.
Not only did Arthur get me to all my meetings on time (despite the infamous Moscow traffic), he also helped me see some of the best of Moscow and even made a CD of the photos he took to help me remember the trip.
Thanks Arthur, great job!

Hi Arthur, I got across your blog while surfing for russian landscape pictures. I have always been drawn to Russia because of its interesting story of which much of it has been misunderstood by the rest of the world. After reading your commentary about the war in the Caucasus, I agree that the western media gives Russia no chance at explaining itself as expected. But thanks to your site, people who really want to know the complete picture can have access to the other side of Russia which is often not told. I wish you God's blessing and much success in this year 2009.

We had a great time with Arthur - our guide & driver during our 4 days stay in Moscow in September. We understood more of Russian history & culture through Arthur. He was a great guide & has been very patient with us when we ladies were enjoying our shopping. We also thanked him for the beautiful pictures he took for us especially the night scene around Moscow. We highly recommend Arthur to be your guide & driver.
We hope to see Arthur again in one of the winters in Moscow. Take care Arthur !!

We had the good fortune to be able to book Arthur for our wonderful 5 days in Moscow. Arthur is extremely professional, excellent English, and vast knowledge of the history and culture of Moscow and Russia. Not only is he a terrific driver and guide, he helped us find a place to stay after our choice of hotel let a lot to be desired. We noticed that some of the other tours near us were listening more to Arthur▓s presentation of the history then their own tour guide. The photos that he took during our tour were outstanding and he presented us with a disc of photos when we were leaving. We have very fond memories about our stay in Moscow all because Arthur took such good care of us and every detail of the tour.

Hi Arthur, we made it safely to Riga and we are now just on the ferry to Stockholm. Riga is beautiful. With my blackberry I have email so it's great.
I wanted to thank you for such a wonderful trip to Moscow. What an incredible experience. I could not imagine Moscow without you! It was so much more fulfilling. Russian has always fascinated. We hear about your country so much in the news that it was important for me to experience it first hand.
I think in many ways North America and Russia are alike. We have very different histories, but in many ways we live the same in these times of rapid communication, TV and the internet. It is striking that without those tools cultures evolved so differently but with them we have many similarities!
Stay in touch. If you ever come to Canada you have to visit the capital city of Ottawa and I will happily be your guide!
Thank you again,

While in Moscow on business, I expected a lot of work and not much sightseeing. Happily, I was referred to Arthur who is very knowledgeable about history, as well as culture. He turned my various "last-minute" excursions into learning opportunities of a lifetime, with beautiful photographs made along the way. Thank you, Arthur! I will see you next time I am in Moscow.
