What a fun tour of the Moscow metros! I wouldn't have been able to figure it out myself, so I'm glad I did this tour. Our guide explained really interesting things about each of the metro stations we stopped at, and he gave us time to take photos as well. I would definitely recommend this tour!

The tour guide Anna was excellent. Her knowledge of the history of the different stations was really good and her love of the subject shone through. Her English was fluent and she had a good sense of humour. A really good tour well presented.

We had only one day in Moscow and visiting the metro accompanied by an English speaking guide was definitely the best idea. Our guide Anna walked us through the amazing USSR metro stations we've seen 8 of them and explained us the history of each one of them. She has been a great guide. Definitely recommended even if you have a very limited time in Moscow.

A great tour with the absolute best tour guide, Elena, from Moscow Free Tours. She was friendly, spoke great English and was very knowledgeable in the history of the Moscow Metro. A great tour!!

The Moscow Metro tour was wonderful! We thoroughly enjoyed the tour...once we found the meeting place. Through no fault of Viator, we had a very hard time locating the meeting point since the advice given by several Moscovites was totally wrong sending us on a wild goose chase! Thankfully, a Moscovite used her cell phone to call the Viator number, and we were united with our group. My advice is to give yourself at least an hour to find the meeting place.
