Inside of Novodevichy Convent

Inside of Novodevichy Convent

During for 400 years the Novodevichy Convent was the witness and the participant of important historical events, connected with the names of Ivan the Terrible, Boris Godunov, Sofia and Peter I. The architectural ensemble of the convent was formed by the end of 17th century and till now remains one of the best in Russia.
The convent is rather like a miniature Kremlin and the magnificent 5-domed Smolensky Cathedral was built in 1525 in the same style as the Kremlin Cathedral of the Assumption.
Russian architects created a festive ensemble by combining traditional Russian architecture with some compositional devices of the Moscow baroque architecture.

Arthur is absolutely amazing. I was so lucky to discover his website as I was preparing for my first-ever trip to Russia. I read in detail all the recommendations from his other clients, and I studied his web site at length. It was clear he was a consummate professional, and after I emailed him with a few questions (that he replied to very quickly) I enthusiastically booked his services as follows: airport meeting/pick-up at Moscow’s SVO airport (flawless), three full days of driver/guide service throughout the city and countryside (comprehensive, well planned, and really fun!), a stunning Moscow Night Tour drive, and drop-off at SVO airport (where he came inside the airport and stayed with me until I was safely in the correct line, which would have been wildly confusing if I didn’t have the benefit of his help).

I can’t say enough good things about Arthur. His English is fantastic, he’s knowledgeable, professional, detail-oriented, customer-service focused beyond words, dependable, honest, friendly, and has a great sense of humor – I could go on and on but you get the idea. One thing that I particularly liked was the way he collected details about what I was interested in seeing and doing. Then, he added his own thoughts and recommendations and together we created a customized tour plan for each day that far exceeded all of my expectations. He also demonstrated a brilliant ability to adjust on the fly if I wanted to modify the plan—no request was too difficult for him. One thing really stands out: since I was traveling alone, Arthur even brought along his camera to take pictures of me as we were touring around so I could be in the pictures. That meant so much to me.

In short, Arthur’s enthusiasm for what he does—and for his country—made my trip memorable and magical. Hiring Arthur will make your next trip to Russia even more spectacular, and I give Arthur and his services the highest recommendation possible.

Thank You Arthur!
