In The Russian Restaurant

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 a Photographer based in US for long time, I was looking for a very Professional college in Moscow that can provide me the "secret" places or as we know in photography, the Key points of the BEST POV (Point of View) for each photo we can get.

I did my research very well before I travel to Moscow and St. Pet during the month of May 2017.

I have to say that I love Night city view Photography; and after my research, I could not make a better decision than contact Arthur as my Photo tour guide.
Since the very beginning when I get in contact with Arthur, He was very helpful in all matters including the easy way to make deposit payment etc.

The best part came when I arrive to Moscow and after a nice dinner with my wife, He offered to pick me up any where I need to.

I can say that for sure not many people know the city and the best Points Of View of Moscow as Arthur does.

We started the city tour during the "magic hour" at dusk and from there on, EVERY place He showed to us was better and better. I can say that I came back to US, with a LOT of Great Photographs thanks to Arthur.
Those places could not be found (or covered) by my self in the same period of time we did.
There is no way to move in Moscow at night using public transportation and cover the many places we did cover during this GREAT tour with Him.

Arthur, thank you very much for your VERY professional Photo Tour. For sure, in future visits to Moscow, I know I do have a friend and a very professional tour guide for us ...
