Don't be deceived by the title "Moscow Driver". Arthur is not merely a good driver, but an excellent tour guide and photographer. He picked us up from the airport and wasted no time in giving us a brief narrative of the city. We arrived in the afternoon and booked the evening tour. It was snowing but Arthur gamely lugged his pro camera and tripod to make sure we had great night time pictures which was a challenge by itself. He brought us to a nice grocery and helped us pick out food and rations for the next 2 days, a real money saver for us because the breakfast buffet at our hotel was pricey.

Arthur had boundless energy and passion during our 2.5 days with him. The fact that he is an engineer already suggests that he is highly educated and intelligent. His English is fluent and he is well versed in various subjects of local history, art and architecture. He never rushed and completely took in our pace which was exactly why we did a private tour so we were not herded in a bus like sheep. He is a consummate professional and patiently waits and speaks both like a history professor and long lost friend. At the end of each day, he promptly sent us all the wonderful portraits and pictures he took of us during the tour. Why even bother bringing your heavy photo gear when you have this guy? He was there till our last day to personally escort us to our train platform for our trip to St. Petersburgh.

Moscow is a vast city. Arthur is one of the best people not only to drive you through rain and snow, but to capture the precious moments and to make sure your trip will be remembered for a long, long time. A highly recommended tour guide and friend in Moscow.
