Former clients share their travel experience to Moscow Russia after using services of the private guide and personal driver Arthur Lookyanov. This message archive was started in 2002.
I recently returned from doing an independent adoption in Russia. While in Moscow, I chose to use the services of Arthur Loukianov. I would highly recommend anyone needing services in Moscow to contact Arthur. As a single mom traveling alone the courtesy alone that Arthur showed was very appreciated. My flight did not arrive in Moscow until very late, Arthur was waiting. Arthur was in the lobby waiting for us the next morning and had already spoken with the Embassy doctors so they were expecting us. After the doctors appointment, we drove over to the Embassy to file the papers. Arthur again took us back for our visa interview. The next morning, I had to be at the airport around 5am, once again Arthur was waiting in the lobby for us. Arthur is very polite, very helpful and very talkative. He knows alot about Moscow, is a good driver and genuinely seems to want to help with anything you may need. I was short on time but he managed to squeeze in a short tour of the Kremlin, Red Square and a few other attractions. His fees are very reasonable and I feel he is also very dependable.<br />

He was punctual, excellent English and courteous. He went above and beyond the requirements of a regular driver helping our Gramma in and out of the car, ensuring she was comfortable in the car, and guiding her around during tours. We would not hesitate to use him again in the future and highly recommend him

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
