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.
Hiring Arthur as my driver/guide was the wisest decision I did when I planned my trip to Moscow. He drove me to places I would never be able to visit by myself, even if I spoke any Russian (with is NOT the case). He is also an exceptional photographer, and made the documentation of my trip much better. The fact that he is very knowledgeable in Russian history and culture, make his company even more pleasant and adds great value to his guidance. I strongly recommend Arthur and when I be back to Moscow (what I plan next year with my son), I hope he is available for me to hire him again.

My family spent a wonderful day with Arthur in Moscow. We met up early and spent the day touring Moscow. Arthur was very knowledgeable about everything that we saw and was able to answer all of our questions. He was very engaging and made us feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend Arthur as your personal guide to Moscow.

We learned about Arthurs services in an unfortunate way. After reading a few stories about how Arthur was involved with a young boy who was sent back to Russia from America alone on a plane we decided to use his services while we were in Moscow. My young son and I are sponsors of SOS Children’s Village and during or down time from visiting the SOS Children’s Village in Tomilino we decided to book Arthur services to take my mother for a tour of Moscow. Little did Arthur know we had some sort of connection, because my son and I just happen to be the sponsor to the same child. Arthur knew we were visiting the children’s village but I would always use the child’s birth name because he is no long recognized by his former name and I believe Arthur never connected. I showed Arthur a picture of my son and the boy and referred to the boy by his real name and then informed Arthur who this child was by his former adopted name. Arthur seemed very pleased and happy to see the boys smiling face and to hear that he is doing just fine and wonderful. The service he provided my family was wonderful and the way he treated my 8 year old son was just fantastic! It was a pleasure and honor to meet this man. I will highly recommend my new friends service to anyone traveling to Moscow for wonderful experience!

Arthur is not only a great guide he is a great person. He is knowledgeable, easy going, responded to our needs for when to eat, what to see, and worked with us at our own pace. He was extremely helpful when it came to transportation and everything else we needed. I would recommend him to my friends definitely and will call him again when I visit the city.

Arthur did a fantastic job for us. We had 12 hours in Moscow, six of which were committed to seeing our son's concert...so Arthur had less than six hours to show us Moscow. And he did a fine job of it. We had some wild drivers in Russia. Arthur was not one of them. He was safe and sane on the road. Arthur went the extra mile at each opportunity, from picking us up on the platform when we arrived at the train station, to escorting us to our cabin and making sure the steward had our dinner order on our departing train. Great service, good humor, a torrent of facts and figures about everything we saw, there is no way we could have gotten more out of our time in Moscow. Highly recommended!

I visited Moscow in late March, 2013 and Arthur was recommended by my St Petersburg guide. I am a hobbyist photographer and I was interested to find out that Arthur was also 'into' photography, so I keenly awaited meeting him and being guided around Moscow for 3 days. Well, what can I say? I could not have done what I did without Arthur! An amazing time, amazing sites and an excellent guide. We had fun, we hammed it up for each other and we both learnt new aspects of photography from each other. I hope to return to Moscow sometime and would not hesitate for one millisecond in engaging Arthur again. It's worth it, even if to just hear him swear at the infamous traffic! Большое спасибо, Arthur!
