Svetlana was in love with traveling even before she actually started to do it. She was born in Lipetsk, moved to Moscow in about 2002 (it's close in Russian scale – only 450 km between the cities).
She studied philosophy and religion, and also design. While working in the fashion industry she finally noticed that an office job can't offer enough freedom, so she moved on and looked for new experiences. After a while, she found herself devoted to all kinds of travel activities and started guiding (first in the Georgia Republic, then in Russia) and organizing travel groups abroad. She believes that there are no limits when you love what you do!
She is really in love with nature, hiking, mountains, starry nights. But also enjoys living in the biggest city of Russia due to its amazing energy, vibes, and history.
Svetlana's Moscow Tip!
People associate Moscow with beautiful metro – and yes, it’s a must here! But after exploring it don’t forget about ground transportation, numerous city buses/trams/trolleys give you amazing panoramic views and can show you the city center just like touring buses. Remember to avoid rush hours (8-10 am and 6-8 p.m.). Don’t hesitate to ask Google about routes, a local sim-card is also affordable and convenient to have :)
Nick was born and raised in Moscow. "I love my city. I love history, foreigh languages and fun, guiding - that's for me!" - he decided a few years ago and was never disappointed with his job after!

Lisa's Moscow Tip!
If you are tired of the megapolis atmosphere, get lost in the quiet old alleys of Kitay-Gorod or Taganskaya area and you will find many interesting places that even locals often don’t know about.
Nikita was born in a small city not far from Moscow, but has moved here at the age of 3. He had studied in an engineering school but graduated with a degree in Sociology and History so will be glad to talk about a variety of things: be it railway systems of Moscow or social classes in modern Russian society.
He has traveled around much of Europe and lived in Berlin for half a year – after which he only got to know his own city of Moscow deeper than ever before. He thinks the experience of visiting a new city is the best when it’s embedded in the overall knowledge about the country and the world – and tries to show how everything is interlinked in his tours.
Nikita's Moscow Tip!
If you have already visited central must-see places in Moscow, try going to areas around Pokrovka street and Chistoprudny boulevard which are distant from busy traffic and absolutely loved by locals due to their gastronomic riches and quiet side-streets.
