Peter the Great

Peter the Great

This photo of giant monument to Peter the Great I've made from my car on the way to Sparrow Hills during a driving tour with my client around downtown. The monument standing on a spit in the Moscow-River stands 94m high. It has the form of a pillar standing on a granite basis foundation that is crowned by a bronze boat, with the figure of Peter the Great growing out of it. The tsar holds a large scroll in his hand. The monument was unveiled during the celebrations of Moscow's 850th anniversary and was dedicated to the 300th anniversary of the Russian navy (September 5th, 1997).

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.
