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.
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.

Arthur was a fabulous guide, translator and photographer. It was our first time in Moscow and we felt like we were able to experience a great deal of the history and culture of Russia. We spent time in Red Square, touring the Kremlin, driving to Sergiyev Posad in the Golden Ring, seeing the amazing metro stations, and much more. Arthur took great care of us and made touring simple and fun – his suggestions for our itinerary were spot on. His knowledge of the history and details about each place we visited was amazing. And, he captures every moment so beautifully – it is such a bonus to have all the photos of our experience. We fell in love with Moscow and owe much of our great experience to Arthur. We highly recommend him.

Arthur was great. His knowledge of Moscow is deep and his ability to get the information across is done with real passion and excitement. He really loves and is proud of his city and very knowledgeable of the history of the country. Everything was organized perfectly and efficiently. What I really liked is his very happy disposition and his flexibility with plans and his ability to gauge when it is too much. He was really outstanding and I highly recommend him - oh and really good English!

Arthur was an absolutely amazing host. So kind, gentle, thoughtful, reliable and professional.
I traveled to Moscow to watch my daughter compete at the IAAF World Championships after suffering a severe leg injury.
Since I was in a wheelchair and unable to navigate the public transit in Moscow, it was so reassuring to know that there was someone available to drive me around the city.
Not only was Arthur a safe and reliable driver, he was also an excellent tour guide and translator. He found creative ways to get me into places that would normally be difficult for the disabled.
I felt like I had a great friend looking out for me during my entire trip.
I even encouraged Arthur to promote his services to the disabled because he provides such great care to his clients.
Needless to say, I would recommend Arthur without hesitation.
