Since 2012 me, Polina (https://www.airbnb.ru/users/show/10725207) and Mariam (https://www.airbnb.ru/users/show/24989691) host daily walks in Moscow for amazing people from all over the world. Our aim is to show you the real capital of Russia and provide you a local-like experience. Soviet Moscow walk is a special one for us since we are Russians who were born in one country and raised in another. We not only have dozens of our parents stories about the Soviet past but also pretty unique self experience of a change.

Mariam was such a nice guide!! The tour is really nice but intensiv, so think to wear good shoes and take some jumper! Really interesting, we saw a lot of different places : kremlin, cathedral St basilius, à nice parc near the red square, a few Metro Station, and the big par near the cosmonaut museum! 6 hours are never enough to see everything of Moscow, bit this tour is a must! Mariam spoke about her Family story to give some example and that is really nice! I recommend to book this tour of you want to see a part of the history of this great city!
