Great blessings this new years to you and to all of russia. The experience of the holidays continues to set in motion many questionable traditions. For many in the states it is a difficult time which brings sadness. when an over commericalized atmosphere creates images that are not real for all families. The important issue of christmas is being able to take time out to be grateful for what is in ones life. To pray for a better world where we can seek an understanding of one another. Primarily to assume that we are our brothers keeper, and we have a responsibility to serve those less fortunate than ourselves. I pray that as stewards of the the earth we become more concerned with the caring of the earth, each other, and all sentient beings in the next decade.
As for russia, My husband and I fell in love with her people and her beauty. Just shows you that 70 years of tyranny cannot darken the human spirit. My warmest wishes that the US and Russia can work together to collaborate as equal partners. I know our people can, lets hope our leaders can as well.

Just returned from a wonderful trip in russia, arthur was a great guide and helped us to learn a great deal about the people and history of the country.
Arthur was a great asset to our trip, we learned a great deal of the people and history,he's a wonderful guide and worked the schedule for us with the time we had available. In three days we were able to see the most important sites, including sergio p, the monastery outside of moscow. If I can help a fellow traveler get a better idea of what to expect,just ask arthur for my email and I will be glad to give you any additional information you may need. I know we were able to see as much as we did because of Arthur's help.

I was looking for a driver/guide to tour Moscow's Golden Ring and somehow fortunately found Arthur's website. Via email and a few SKYPE calls we discussed my proposed itinerary, with Arthur suggesting some great embellishments to what I had planned. In two, 14+ hour days we toured four of the major cities on the Golden Ring including Sergeev Posad (a must see), Vladimir and Suzdal. Arthur's knowledge of the sights and history of each of these areas was more than impressive as was his perseverance to gain entry into monasteries and churches that were closed when we arrived. He therefore enable me to see all the major sights along the way and not miss anything due to the timing of our arrival. Beyond being totally fluent in English, Arthur is extremely reliable, has a very comfortable car and really does a great job in fulfilling every wish of his clients. By the way, he's also a great photographer and may help you bring back some great pictures of your visit. After our initial long distance conversations and spending two days traveling the Golden Ring together, I feel that I not only had a great tour guide in Russia but have made a new friend. Arthur thanks for a fantastic tour!

OUTstanding service and great knowledge of the city. Arthur made my trip to Fedoskino a dream. He arranged everything in advance. Thank you, Arthur for your help. Next time I'm in Moscow I will be calling you. The photographs you took on that trip put a smile on my face each time I look at them.
Thank you SO much.

In June of 2010, my friends and I had a long layover in Moscow. We were hoping for a brief one day introduction to Moscow, yet Arthur gave us so much more. He was not only a comfortable guide, but incredibly knowledgeable. His knowledge of Russian and world history is incredible. As a history teacher, I was especially impressed with his attention to historic detail. One thing I appreciated was his efficiency considering our time constraints. We viewed the sights at our own pace, yet he seemed to know every trick when it came to getting in and out of a location and moving on to the next. Another aspect of his services that impressed me was his ability to speak excellent English. If we had a question, he had the answer, and there was never a conversation that was lost in translation. Without reservation, I highly recommend Arthur and his guide services. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! Please feel free to contact me with any questions, or concerns you may have.
