Tour-Moscow is a platform of licensed guides from Moscow, St. Petersburg and other Russian cities. The people who work with us get the profession of a guide in the museums like the Kremlin, the Armory, the Tretiakov Gallery, the museum of World War II, the Fine Arts Pushkin museum, the Space museum, Kolomenskoye and Tsaritsino, estates, etc. After doing the course our guides have exams and only in case of passing them can start a guide’s carreer. Our guides are native Russians who speak English. Unfortunately many foreigners work as guides in Moscow and St Petersburg and tell the wrong things about the history of Russia to tourists. It is very easy to find these people on the internet. They know nothing of the history of this country and they are illegal workers.
The private tour is not cheap, so it is not reasonable to hire a person who knows almost nothing, the only advantage is that he speaks his language as native.
We are glad you found our site! Here you will find a native specialist from Russia who speaks your language and specializes in tourism in Moscow and St. Petersburg. People working for Tour-Moscow have all the permits to work in the tourism sector in Moscow and St. Petersburg. When you hire a private tour for example to the Kremlin, the tickets that the guide takes have their name on them, which means it’s only your guide who can do this work. At the entrance to the Kremlin the guard checks the name written on the ticket against the name written on the guide’s license.
When you get a tour with a guide who is not licensed, a guide who is not Russian, a foreigner, there is always some kind of danger that the musem attendant may stop the unlicensed guide, so your tour will be finished.
Tour-Moscow is not a travel agency, we are a group of guides who can help you enjoy your stay in Russia. We have no interest in hotel sales, train tickets, plane tickets but we can recommend where to buy.
From the first moment we get in touch we will do our best for you to feel our support and help. Welcome to Russia!
