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.
