How lucky we were to find Arthur's website! We just adopted two beautiful Russian children in November of 2003. I really don't know how we would have made it in Moscow without Arthur. It was like having a friend guide you. He brought us to the Filatov Clinic and secured us an examination for the children--even though we were late and had no appointment. He placed us in the right line outside the American Embassy and escorted us to McDonalds with the children while we were waiting for our final appointment. I was sick and he took me to the pharmacy for some antibiotics. We were concerned about spending too much eating out so he pushed the cart for us at a huge and wonderful Russian supermarket. And to top it off, he gave us a traffic-free early morning last minute run through Moscow that was breathtaking. Moreover, Arthur is a safe and intelligent driver--a unique characteristic, you will see, for a Russian motorist. And all this at very reasonable rates.
It was very important for us too to feel comfortable with the person we would be spending hours with and intrusting the details of such an important part of our lives--and I guess we lucked out. Arthur is a very charming guy--a cross between Robert Redford and Michael J. Fox, in a Russian style. And best of all, he is good with children.
Feel free to e-mail us with any questions you might have about he services.

My wife and I visit Moscow often and know that one of the most important things to have is a reliable driver. We discovered Arthur's service by contacting him through his Internet web site. We found him, as a driver, to be extremely reliable, professional, always on time, honest and with safe and effective driving skills. As a person, we found him to be pleasant, friendly and helpful. Arthur has a good working knowledge of the English language, and can communicate very well. He also is very familiar with the city of Moscow and its surroundings, which is very important, as there are certain areas in the city and certain times of the day which are susceptible to terrible traffic jams. I highly recommend Arthur to anybody who visits Moscow and is in need of reliable and safe transportation. Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions about Arthur or his services.

I was in Moscow for two weeks on business. During this time I employed Arthur on a daily basis to take me to my numerous meetings around the city during the day as well as in the evening when I visited restaurants and bars. His knowledge of the city is excellent and he was able to find every address on time. He was always punctual and I found him pleasant and honest.<br />
Using Arthur is much cheaper than using regular Moscow taxis which are very expensive and unreliable - on my previous trips to Moscow I used regular taxis and when I compared my expenses I found that using Arthur on a daily rate worked out cheaper than taking taxis. He is also a fun companion if you are travelling on your own. Highly recommended

Arthur offers very good value for money, especially when compared with the ridiculous prices of taxis in Moscow. He was always punctual and enthusiastic to show as much of his wonderful capital as the day allows for. Had we not found Arthur, many great sights would have been missed and maybe we would have left with a different impression of this astonishing city.

While visiting Moscow for a wedding we had the pleasure to secure Arthur's services for various short day trips to visit the historic locations around Moscow. In addition, he was able to direct us to some of the best locations for shopping, often helping with price and selection. <br />
In my view, his knowledge, skill and on time pick-up and delivery for us helped make our visit much more safe and enjoyable
