In The Russian Restaurant

Client: Daryl Simpson
From: Brisbane, Australia
Trip: Travel to Moscow & Volgograd, Russia
Tour: Holy Trinity Monastery of St. Sergius in Sergiev Posad
Where: At the restaurant "Trapeza na Makovtse"
Date: October 20, 2006

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,

As you can read in the comments on either side of this testimonial, Arthur's many clients have been so satisfied and enthusiastic about his services that they seem to compete to articulate the best and most impressive recommendation of his services. We will not be an exception. Arthur was outstanding as a tour guide, driver, photographer, and translator. We saw the most important sites in Moscow and outside of Moscow. One of the highlights of our trip was Moscow by night which was an incredible introduction to this beautiful city. With Arthur’s help, we saw sites that are rarely available for viewing such as the Kremlin Palace. In addition, Arthur also showed us sites that are rarely visited such as the Gorky House, Tolstoi House, Chaliapin House and Scriabin House, which gave us an insight into how famous Russian writers, opera singers, and composers lived. All of these visits made our tour of Moscow richer and more insightful. Arthur seems to know every street in one of the largest cities in the world, and every shortcut to avoid the many traffic jams in Moscow. With his knowledge of Moscow and a genuine desire to satisfy his clients’ wishes, Arthur assured that we made the most of our time in this exciting city. As an avid photographer, he documented our entire visit to Moscow with photos that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. And finally, Arthur’s extensive knowledge of art, architecture, history, and religion enhances each tour. We strongly encourage anyone interested in an in-depth tour of Moscow to consider Arthur because he will exceed your expectations.
