Wir hatten einen wundervollen Urlaub in Moskau. Unsere Kinder waren ebenso begeistert von Arthur wie auch wir. Er ist uns zu einem wirklichen Freund geworden und das in nur 2,5 Tagen. Jeder auch nur kleinste Wunsch wurde uns von den Augen abgelesen. Selbst die Autoabschleppgeschichte hat er perfekt gelöst.
In dieser kurzen Zeit bekamen wir einen großartigen Eindruck von Moskau und ganz besonders ich (Alex)habe mich in Moskau verliebt. Über Arthur kann man noch viel sagen: er ist immer pünktlich, vorbereitet, geschichtlich versiert und er ist ein wirklich netter angenehmer Begleiter, man fühlt sich wohl in seiner Nähe.
Danke für unseren schönen Aufenthalt in Moskau.
Mit ganz lieben Grüßen

( in English) We had marvellous holydays in Moskow. We and our children were overwhelmed by the friendly nature of Arhtur. In this 2,5 days he became a real friend to us. Even our smallest desires where read from our eyes. Even the story with the car was solved by him the best way.
In this short time we where deeply impressed and especially me (Alex), I felt in love with Moskow. About Arthur you can say a lot: he is punctual, prepared, historical well informed and he is a nice and pleasant accompanist, you can feel really comfortable with him around.
Thank you for our wonderful stay in Moskow, we will come again.
Wish you all the best and stay as you are

To all of you travelling to Moscow, surfing on Arthur's page debating on whether or not to hire his sevices, my only advice is DO IT! He will show you Moscow under a totally different angle.Not only will you get an in depth run down of what you are seeing,( as Arthur is very knowledgeable) but most of all you will have a fantastic human experience. being a tourist can sometimes get pretty lonely, (nose always burried in guide books, trying to desperately find your way in this maze of a city where the alphabet is not even the same).... But not with Arthur. With him you just have to sit back and enjoy. He will tailor the tour to your needs, sharing every single thing he knows about everything and anything.You will experience warmth, humour and true generosity on top of visiting a beautiful city.
I am recommending him a thousand times, as he will make your trip to Moscow an unforgettable priceless memory.
thank you arthur. You a truly a great man!

Our time in Moscow was extremely brief but with Arthur as our guide we learned an enormous amount about its history and culture. We found Arthur to be good company and very conscientious. It was only through Arthur's inside knowledge that we were able to tour the Kremlin Palace which was one of the many highlights of our visit to Moscow.

I travel to and through Moscow once, or twice, a year. Usually, I do not have time for pictures. This last trip was to be no different,as I was arriving at 2030, on 24 December, leaving the next day.
I contacted Arthur to take me around Moscow. I couldn't believe he wanted to that late, but there we were, freezing temps, photographing Moscow from many venues.
Arthur proved to be quite knowledgeable about history, and such, but that did not surprise me.
Next time I visit, I will schedule a more reasonable amount of time, getting day, as well as night, photographs.
Thank you, Arthur. You made it a fun time, and we both captured a lot of great images. See you this summer, I hope.

After two other consultants I work with had a terrible time getting around Moscow, I decided to hire an English-speaking driver.
Arthur was great! He is reliable and punctual (to the minute).
His knowledge of the city and its history is very impressive. His English is excellent and he has a great sense of humor. I enjoyed my time in Moscow and hope to return in the future. My first call will be to Arthur.

Arthur took us on some excellent tours of Moscow and guided us through some very memorable sights. It was wonderful to have an insider's view of the city from both the historical and contemporary perspective. His knowledge is expansive and his english is excellent, but his positive attitude and energy are the characterisitics that distsinguish him most from other guides I have relied on in the past. I highly recommend his services, you will be hard pressed to find a better choice to meet your guide/driver/photographer needs in Moscow.
