For our first trip to Russia my wife and I (in our 60s) wanted the services of a reliable and informative Moscow guide for 3 days. We found Arthur on the internet and made the usual enquiries. His email responses were lightning fast, his english as good as ours and his rates competitive. We signed up with him and he fully delivered on everything that he promised. He met us at Moscow Station and we spent 3 full days sightseeing with him - 2 days in Moscow plus a one day trip to Vladimir and Suzdal, and a very memorable night lights tour of Moscow as well. Arthur is the complete guiding professional. He is extremely knowledgable of Russian history, efficient, courteous, honest, friendly (with a great sense of humour) and is also a great photographer which adds greatly to the photo memories that you want to capture. We had no knowledge of Arthur before finding him on the internet but he is easily the best guide we have ever experienced in our numerous travels abroad. We have no hesitation in recommending him.

I highly recommend Arthur Lookyanov as a professional and reliable personal driver-guide in and around Moscow. I spent two full days with Arthur, the first in touring two towns in Russia's famous Golden Ring and the second in touring within Moscow proper. Also, he provided round trip car service between my hotel and business meetings on two other days. In all this, I found Arthur to be very friendly, knowledgeable, energetic, and totally committed to client satisfaction. He planned my itineraries very thoroughly, but was also flexible and inventive in changing "on the fly" to meet my interests. A big bonus is that Arthur is also a professional photographer and I now have literally 100s of great photos of my experiences, at no extra cost. Finally, his Honda CR-V is relatively new, well maintained, and quite comfortable. All in all, my time with Arthur was very enjoyable and educational, and I will certainly hope to engage him again should I return to Moscow. Many thanks, Arthur, and kind regards!

We are totally satisfied with Arthur's services. We went on the Moscow by night tour with him and he showed us all the wonderful sights and best of all, he was like a personal photographer for us. We have such nice pictures taken by him to give us great memories. We also went on a half day tour of Kremlin grounds, including the military ceremony and then he rushed us to the airport in time for our flight. Of course he is extremely knowledgeable about Moscow and it is the extra bits that he went out of his way to help us with that is really appreciated.

During our first trip to Russia, Arthur was a fantastic driver, guide and resource! During the planning phase of our trip, it was reassuring to have someone that knows Moscow to recommend hotels and the logistics of travel.
For 5 days, Arthur helped us navigate museums, churches, historical sites and restaurants. He was very knowledgeable about Moscow and it’s history and provided important context around the places we visited.
On our first night in Moscow, we took the night tour and it was magical. Standing in the middle of Red Square with the Kremlin, St. Basil’s and the mammoth Gum department store strung with lights is not to be missed.
I would recommend Arthur to anyone for a personalized and stress-free visit to Moscow!

As part of background research for a new novel, I needed someone to take me around to the sites in Moscow where some of the events in the story takes Place.
Arthur proved an excellent choice. Nor only does he know his way around Moscow, he also willingly shares his vast knowledge of the city's past. Furtheremore, Arthus is a very nice guy to spend a day with!

Arthur could not have given us a better tour and look at Moscow! He is a personal and caring guide. We saw the beautiful sights of the city. Arthur took the mystery out of the handsome churches, the Red Square, Lenin's tomb; everything you would want to know about Moscow. He took photos of my husband and me in all the picturesque locations, and he
really has a gift with a camera.
Please consider a tour with Arthur if you are planning a trip to Russia.
p.s. he really know his history!

My daughter and I made a quick trip to Moscow...and used Arthur exclusively during our visit. He handled airport transfers, to/from Domodedovo and served as our guide for 2 and 1/2 days. He is very knowledgeable about the city's history - and custom tailored an itinerary based on our interests. Beyond the "must see sites (Kremlin, St. Basil,s, Red Square etc.) - we also visited the town of Sergiyev Posad (very worthwhile) and also took Arthur's tour of <a href="http://www.moscow-driver.com/tours/night_moscow.html">Moscow by night</a> - which I highly recommend. As noted by other reviewers, Arthur is a very accomplished photographer - and the pictures he takes are a real bonus for his clients. I would highly recommend Arthur as a guide when visiting Moscow.
