Geoffrey and Karen, this nice, sociable couple from Australia, were only in Moscow 2.5 days and they were lucky not only with the pleasant weather at the beginning of April (sunny, +17..+19 C), but also with a lot of interesting sites of Moscow they were able to see from the plan (itinerary) I provided for them in advance.

On April 7th, on the holiday of Annunciation of the Mother of God, they were very happy and excited to be able to get a special tour into the Grand Kremlin and Faceted Palaces of Moscow Kremlin (very limited entrance) and after this tour it was also unexpected surprise for them when they were able to see the ceremony of the releasing of doves by our Patriarch, Alexii II who ended at 12:00 the morning liturgy at the cathedral of Annunciation (former private church of our tsars) in Moscow Kremlin.

A bit later, I will post here their sightseeing itinerary for Moscow, which I provided for them in advance. Besides Moscow they also visited St. Petersburg, Helsinki and Hong Kong on the way back to their home. A couple of days ago they sent me a message that they had arrived home safe and sound and enjoyed very much their trip to Russia, as Moscow part (organized and provided by me) and St. Petersburg where they were guided by my colleague Julia Ivanushkina, who has also had only good responses from my former clients who hired her services. If you are planning to visit St. Petersburg as well as Moscow, I can highly recommend services of two excellent guides there:

Julia Ivanushkina website:
"St. Petersburg Wonder Travel Guide Julia"
Olga Miheyeva website:
"Olga's Tour Service in St. Petersburg"

Note: Please, check their websites and contact them as soon as possible because of they can be pretty busy, especially in summer season!

I contacted Arthur as recommended by a user on the Lonely Planet Thorntree forum. My nephew and I had a 9 hour layover at Moscow's Sheremetyevo 2 airport while traveling from a primary vacation in the Middle East. We preferred to tour Moscow rather than sit at the airport for 9 hours. I arranged for Arthur to pick me up at the airport and provide a quick tour of the major attractions. I realized this was risky given Moscow's notorious traffic problems. Our flight landed an hour late in Moscow. I called Arthur while still on the plane on the runway ready to cancel the arrangements because of the late arrival. However, he convinced me that we still had enough time. He took back roads into Moscow to avoid the horrendous freeway traffic and was still able to provide us with a two hour + walking tour of the Red Square/Kremlin area with a quick Metro tour thrown in. Arthur definitely knows the city well--both from a historical and navigational standpoint. I am glad he convinced me to leave the airport--the short tour was definitely a highlight of our week. I would definitely use him again and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a driver and/or tour guide in Moscow.
