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 needed to send my wife and daughter to Moscow. Neither of them had ever been there and we all three were worried. After speaking with Arthur a few times I felt he could be trusted and even felt somewhat comfortable paying him in advance and using his services. When they arrived he met them at the airport. He drove them to their hotel and even showed them the area around the hotel. He himself contacted me to let me know they had arrived safely. I was glad I had trusted him with my two most valuable treasures
and would recommend anyone could do the same.
Months after that, my wife, daughter and I met in Moscow. Naturally and without any hesitation I called on his services again. Since we were arriving at different airports and at different times I was concerned, but he as before eased my mind by taking care of all the arrangements in Moscow for us. He picked the up at their airport, brought them to mine and patiently waited with them. During my visit to Moscow I had hired him numerous times and I was overwhelmed by his courtesy, his knowledge of the city and its vast history, and his willingness to help in any way he could. This was the best sightseeing excursion I had ever been on and the fact that his English was impeccable, and this made it that much better. I will use his services any and every time I am in Moscow. I would highly recommend to anyone going to Moscow, even if you have been there before he can make your stay the most pleasant. Believe me please, he is one man you must know in Moscow.
Thank You so much, Arthur, you are truly the best.

We spent four amazing days in Moscow with Arthur as our guide. Arthur made ours the trip of a lifetime. From his superior pre-planning assistance with tours and tickets to his excellent knowledge about the history and modern culture of Moscow Arthur met and exceeded our expectations. He is very professional, speaks excellent english, and is willing to adapt to individual likes and needs. I highly recommend Arthur to anyone traveling to Moscow. We would definitely use his services again if we visited Moscow in the future.

Arthur speaks good english, is dependable and informative about the histoiry and living today in Russia, not just tourist sites. He is a wonderful photographer and assists you with getting the best shots. As a single, 72 yr. old woman, I felt completely safe with his excellent driving and capable organization. He even helped me purchase a new camera, something I could not have done on my own in a place where no
English was spoken. I am recommending Arthur to all my traveling friends. His services are reasonable and he is an excellent guide.

We had a fabulous time in Moscow, and Arthur made it all so easy... He showed us everything we wanted to see and much more, in a very efficient yet fun & friendly manner. From the very responsive pre-trip planning and arrangements to the airport pick-up through 4 full days of touring and late night drop-off at the train, Arthur was always on-time and extremely competent. Arthur's talents as a photographer really enhanced our experience, as he produced some truly professional quality photographs as memories of our trip; a huge bonus. Highly recommended!

We are two couples who had just completed an educational tour from St Petersburg to Moscow (lectues daily, etc,).
We arranged for Arthur to guide us for three days after the tour in order to drive us to some of the WW-II battle areas outside of Moscow. Also, to see some sights of Moscow which are not on the regular tourist agenda. Arthur did a wonderful job of showing us the kinds of places we wanted to see and of adding to our insights of Russia and the Russian people. He also took us to the airport on the fourth day and made sure we were correctly on our way to catch ou flight.
We would highly recommend him to anyone needing a personal driver/guide in the Moscow area!!!

We spent 6 amazing days in Moscow with Arthur as our guide. We echo the comments of the other travellers who have left comments and can only add that the time in Moscow would not have been so memorable if it were not for your excellent services, your guiding knowledge of Moscow, your help with my husband's handicap, your cheerfullness and excellent English. We highly recommend your services to anyone visiting Moscow whether on business or vacation. Thank you for the CD of photos, the hymns of the Orthodox church and the Russian Military marches. If we return, we will certainly use you again. Keep that cheerful outlook. Good Luck.
