We had Arthur as our guide during a 2 day stay in Moscow. He is very helpful, enthusiastic and knowledgable about the city, its history and attractions. He is a great photographer as well and takes wonderful pictures. He speaks English well and is very responsive to emails. Highly recommended and I will engage his services when I go to Moscow again.

Arthur, our knowledgeable tour guide was amazing and he always keen to accommodate our various requests in this trip. We couldn't have discovered so much in Moscow and the whitish snowy fairytale countryside without his great input!
During our trip planning, he responded quickly to all of our questions. He even arranged local guided tours in different special museums which we yearned to visit. He translated well and we learned a lot from those field experts.
We saw the city and rural at night with marvellous Christmas lights and snowy scenery. He showed us things we would never have explored on our own. He knows exactly where are the good sights. He showed us the beauty and history of Metro stations, awesome landscapes and architecture around. All these have given us the best experience and a pleasurable time in Moscow.
He made us feel like friends instead of just tourists and tour guide. If you're looking for a guide in Moscow, Arthur should be the first on your list! Through his passion, you will be able to know more about the region as well as much about the Russian culture in a unique and very authentic way. This is really an invaluable memory for travellers to Moscow.
Two thumbs up for Arthur, he is superb and we have no hesitation in recommending his services for those who would like to see and experience the real Russia.

Arthur is a FANTASTIC tour guide, driver and photographer all in one. Our Moscow visit was short (only three full days), but we covered so much ground and knew so much about the city in large part because of Arthur.
He was knowledgeable, fun to be with, always on time, and made us feel very welcome to his beautiful home city, Moscow.
He was very flexible with the schedule and catered to our requests. Our Moscow experience was great, and that is in large part thanks to his company.
Should anyone visit Moscow, I would highly recommend getting Arthur's services. It will be the best decision you will have made.

I had a couple of requests for my day trip to Moscow which didn’t include the normal touristy activities but I also wanted to see the famous sites in the red square. Arthur managed to incorporate my requirements and include all the famous sites in one day. The day didn’t feel rushed and everything was well timed and planned. The way the different activities were connected flowed effortlessly. He recommended other activities for me to do on other days and different types of cuisines to try. I particularly liked the Ukrainian restaurant and he took the most beautiful photos of me despite the bitterly cold winter temperature in Moscow. Arthur is a fantastic guide!!!

Upon arrival I was welcomed by Arthur and I felt welcomed and with such a friendly atmosphere I had a fantastic start! The guide and tour was extremely good, very flexible (appreciate this!) and for that he deserves a special thanks. I had three great days there, which obviously also added up to the experience.
Arthur is such a warm personality and highly motivated guide (recommendable!). I truly enjoyed walking with him The scenery was beautiful and it was a relieve to walk in such a quiet and peaceful environment.
The atmosphere is so special that it really felt like home to me All respect for Aruther who does a great job there; a true sample of excellent tour guide!
Special Thanks for his Warm Coat,Hat and a delicious dinner (cooked by his 77 yrs mothers)....I am also so thankful of his mother as well . ...

As a Photographer based in US for long time, I was looking for a very Professional college in Moscow that can provide me the "secret" places or as we know in photography, the Key points of the BEST POV (Point of View) for each photo we can get.
I did my research very well before I travel to Moscow and St. Pet during the month of May 2017.
I have to say that I love Night city view Photography; and after my research, I could not make a better decision than contact Arthur as my Photo tour guide.
Since the very beginning when I get in contact with Arthur, He was very helpful in all matters including the easy way to make deposit payment etc.
The best part came when I arrive to Moscow and after a nice dinner with my wife, He offered to pick me up any where I need to.
I can say that for sure not many people know the city and the best Points Of View of Moscow as Arthur does.
We started the city tour during the "magic hour" at dusk and from there on, EVERY place He showed to us was better and better. I can say that I came back to US, with a LOT of Great Photographs thanks to Arthur.
Those places could not be found (or covered) by my self in the same period of time we did.
There is no way to move in Moscow at night using public transportation and cover the many places we did cover during this GREAT tour with Him.
Arthur, thank you very much for your VERY professional Photo Tour. For sure, in future visits to Moscow, I know I do have a friend and a very professional tour guide for us ...

The "Moscow-by-Night" tour that we had with Arthur Lookyanov towards the end of September this year (2017) was an absolutely stunning, jaw-dropping introduction to this marvellous city. It was amazing how much we saw in the three hours with Arthur - from the classical Moscow sights to the evocative WW2 Memorial, the beautiful Cathedral of Christ the Saviour and the colourful, hyper-modern skyscrapers of the business district. Touring Moscow by night is an absolute "must" for first-time visitors, and if one can arrange to have the knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic Arthur Lookyanov as the tour leader, so much the better!
