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.
After recommendations from several friends, I booked Arthur for a full day tour of Moscow. In addition to his knowledge of the city and its history, he shared what it was like to live in Russia - both now and before 1991. His love for his country and his city show throughout the tour and he adjusted his plans based on my needs, interests and travel plans. I cannot recommend him highly enough and hope that at some point I will be able to return to Moscow with my husband so he can see Moscow through Arthur's eyes as well.

We booked Arthur for an entire day of sightseeing around Moscow. He gave us a grand tour and really brought the buildings and sights alive with his knowledge of their history. We had no trouble understanding his English. We enjoyed and trusted his services so much that we booked him on the spot for an airport transfer as well. We look forward to seeing him again on our next trip to Moscow.

While using Arthur's service's on a recent visit to Moscow, I would recommed him highly. His command of English is impecable as well as his knowledge of Moscow and Russian history. He was never late for an appointment and was very willing to take us to wherever we wanted without hesitation. We lost our plane tickets from Moscow to Stockholm and he was instrumental in help us with the ticket agent to resolve the situation. Without his acting as an interpreter we would have had a great deal of difficulty. I would not hesitate to put all my trust in Arthur and I am certaily looking forward to meeting him again in my travels. Lou

My husband and I used Arthur's professional services on our first-ever trip to Moscow; during our adoption process. He took us to all the popular tourist destinations...The Kremlin, Red Square, St. Basil's Cathedral, GUM and along Old Arabat Street for good bargain shopping. On the way to the airport, we treated him at his favorite Russian pub. We got to try new Russian foods which were all fantastic! He is very knowledgeable about his city and explains the history to his clients with confidence and pride. If it wouldn't have been for Arthur we would not have seen Moscow the way we did! During our second trip to finalize the adoption of our baby boy we did not have the extra time for sightseeing and besides, Arthur was already booked with other clients so we did not get to see him. We were saddened, because we truly felt we'd met a friend! But living up to his expectations, Arthur called our hotel room "just to say hello and best wishes to our new family". What a fantastic guy! One thing that stands out about Arthur is his professionalism and the way he carries himself with confidence, and he is by far the best English-speaking Russian we met! We highly recommend Arthur's services with the guarantee of a memorable experience. One day, we hope to cross paths with Arthur again!! The McPike Family.

Arthur is a really great tour guide.As you can read from previous comments , you can imagine what a GREAT GUY he is. Well , I would like to add that not only his attitude , punctuality , knowledge are good , he is 1 of the best english speaker I've heard so far during my 2 & 1/2 year stay in Moscow. During my short 2 hours trip , we've seen Moscow more than we 've ever did. It's really a fantastic experience. Thanks Arthur. :)
