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 was only in Moscow for about 11 hours. Arthur met me at the airport and had my time planned to the minute. We first went to Red Square to see the changing of the guard which only occurs on Saturdays. From that we toured Red Square. Arthur's in depth knolwedge of Russian history is outstanding. He constently provided facts regarding Russian history and culture which increased the experience in Moscow tremedously. Arthur's professionalism, knowledge, personalism, and command of the English language is amazing. Moscow was a highlight of my trip due mostly to Arhtur. If (when) I return to Russia and Moscow Arthur will be first person I contact while planning my trip. Thanks Arthur for my great experience in Moscow!!

Our trip to Russia and Scandinavia had a GREAT start, all thanks to Arthur. He was funny, knowledgeable, flexible, punctual, and attentive. In addition to his tour guide services, he also took great pictures for us. Thank you Arthur for your help with the propaganda posters. I love them.

If you are on Arthur's website reading this email, then look no further! He is all you will need for a successful trip to Moscow. Transportation, tours, adventures and dining will all be incredible.
Arthur took us to Sergiyev Posad about an hour North of Moscow for an unforgettable tour of the monastery. We guarantee you will be moved and never want to leave.
We also took both a day and night tour of this beautiful city, including the subway. Arthur has his favorite stations, trust him, each one is more beautiful than the next.
Book early, as we waited too late and were only able to spend one day with Arthur, our loss. But with his help, advice and suggestions we were able to travel around the city with ease during the remainder of our visit.
Don't take a chance with someone else and let your time in Moscow be less than perfect. Arthur will be the ideal driver, guide and even photographer.
Be prepared to learn as he is very informative. And finally, if you don't have a sense of humor, Arthur will supply one.

Arthur was so awesome! We spent 3 days in Moscow (the greatest city in the world!) with Arthur, and had the absolute best time!
We went on a Night Tour (and as a BIG BONUS got to celebrate Russia's football victory over Holland with the entire city), as well as a souvenir shopping excursion and a day trip to Sergiev Posad. Throughout it all, not only was Arthur punctual, reliable, and conscientious, he was SO much fun! He was positive and energetic, and absolutely sincere in sharing his knowledge and love for his beautiful city, not to mention being quite an impressive driver in Moscow's crazy streets.
AND - not only was he an outstanding guide and driver, he is the most amazing photographer! It was so nice to have someone to take our picture by all of these beautiful places, a service that you certainly won't get from anyone else!
I did tons of research before this trip, and had checked several other websites, but kept coming back to Arthur's website, pouring over his beautiful pictures, and reading all of the other client reviews, After using his services, I can say that I absolutely and wholeheartedly agree with all the other great reviews, and would highly recommend him to everyone. I can't wait to return to Moscow and see him again! Arthur was an absolute joy and delight, and helped make our trip an amazing trip of a lifetime!

I was seconded to Moscow for two years by my firm so my husband and I moved here 6 months ago. Arthur took us on a night tour of Moscow last week and although we have already been here for a while and visited some places, we felt like we saw Moscow for the first time! Arthur took us around and showed us so many different beautiful places we hadn't seen before! The tour was absolutely fantastic, Arthur is friendly and knowledgeable and was able to tell us a lot of interesting things about each place we visited. My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves and would recommend Arthur's services to anyone already in Moscow or planning to visit this beautiful city!
Thanks Arthur, hope to see you again soon!

I was in Moscow visiting my girlfriend who is working there for 6 months for a bank. Arthur helped us tremendously - we did a night tour of Moscow (i would highly recommend this) and Arthur's knowledge was first rate. Was a very relaxed tour and was a lot of fun. I would recommend Arthur to anyone and will do so to my friends who may travel to Moscow. Moscow is an interesting and incredible City and having Arthur show us around made our experience all the better.
Will see you in a month or so time when back over.

Wir hatten einen wundervollen Urlaub in Moskau. Unsere Kinder waren ebenso begeistert von Arthur wie auch wir. Er ist uns zu einem wirklichen Freund geworden und das in nur 2,5 Tagen. Jeder auch nur kleinste Wunsch wurde uns von den Augen abgelesen. Selbst die Autoabschleppgeschichte hat er perfekt gelöst.
In dieser kurzen Zeit bekamen wir einen großartigen Eindruck von Moskau und ganz besonders ich (Alex)habe mich in Moskau verliebt. Über Arthur kann man noch viel sagen: er ist immer pünktlich, vorbereitet, geschichtlich versiert und er ist ein wirklich netter angenehmer Begleiter, man fühlt sich wohl in seiner Nähe.
Danke für unseren schönen Aufenthalt in Moskau.
Mit ganz lieben Grüßen

( in English) We had marvellous holydays in Moskow. We and our children were overwhelmed by the friendly nature of Arhtur. In this 2,5 days he became a real friend to us. Even our smallest desires where read from our eyes. Even the story with the car was solved by him the best way.
In this short time we where deeply impressed and especially me (Alex), I felt in love with Moskow. About Arthur you can say a lot: he is punctual, prepared, historical well informed and he is a nice and pleasant accompanist, you can feel really comfortable with him around.
Thank you for our wonderful stay in Moskow, we will come again.
Wish you all the best and stay as you are
