    I had only one free day in Moscow and I chose this tour in order to get a sense of the place. It was fantastic. The guide was knowledgeable, energetic and a half decent photographer. We did a lot of walking in teh cold - which was half the fun of it - and saw a lot of Moscow. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

    This tour is worth it and my guide photographer Gelena was exceptionally good. We started the tour after I finished my walking tour of Moscow and I knew exactly where all I needed to go to take my pictures. When I met Gelena and I told her where all I wanted to go and she looking at the position of the sun to ensure we get the best lighting for the photos managed all locations very well. She also took me to the the small alleys as she understood what I liked in the photographs. I made Gelena take many random pics as well as I would do with my own camera. Gelena was very understanding and the photographs she took were amazing, She would show me every photo and only after I approved of the shot did she move ahead. If she didn't like the photo she would keep taking until she was happy with the outcome. Gelena was also very patient and waited for a clear back ground without other tourists being captured in the frame. I would strongly recommend this tour and only with Gelena as she understands what the person in front of the camera is looking for.

Gelena was very good in her English and a great person to interact with as well.

    This tour was very exciting, informative, and personal. We had an AMAZING time with our guide and truly learned a lot from our experience. I would recommend this tour and this guide to anyone who plans to travel to this area of Europe. The tour was well-worth the money, and I will definitely book this tour or a similar tour the next time I travel!

    We have had several photo shoots on tours in other countries and we are very much disappointed with the outcome of the photos in this tour. Photogrpher didnt even wait till there are no people in the background before shooting. People were all over the background. She does not even know the and"rule of thirds? We were always in the middle of the photo. Even a the photo by the christmas tree waz disappointing as there was not 1 picture where you have the full picture of the christmas tree. She did not even try to hide or get a better angle at the Cathedral where you can even see the huge blue container at the lower right hand corner of the backgroubd behind uz. Because the pictures we and're so bad, even the edited pictures did not help to give depth, drama and life to our pictures.
