Daryl had been planning his first trip to Russia, Moscow and Volgograd for about two years, and it was his fist trip to Europe... Looking at the forecasts he not expected that in the second half of October the weather in Moscow could be so cold (for him :-)). Comparing the weather in his home town Brisbane in hot Australia, I agree, that it was pretty low. Yes, it was pretty hard for him to withstand the cold weather conditions, but not for long... for soon he met a nice, beautiful woman, who warmed up his heart and he fell in love. He came to Russia as a tourist and had no any thoughts of meeting a woman here, but when it did happen, Olga (her name) was always in his thoughts and dreams...

Nowadays, when Daryl is in Brisbane and Olga is in Kazan, I help them via the internet and phone calls to learn each other’s language: she is learning English, and he - Russian. They have already made plan to meet each other next time in Australia, in February 2007. He told her: I was already in Russia, now it is your turn to come and see my country!".

I would like to wish from my heart that Daryl and Olga will continue their romance and meet each other again!

PS: In spite of the cold weather, Daryl liked Moscow, Russia, it's architecture, history and life style and told me that he would like to come with his friends again for sure.. probably in August (of course.. summer time :-))....

With BEST Regards,

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!
