I'm a big traveller myself and I've met a lot of people who love to explore the city on their own, but need couple of tips and recommendations about using metro, directions, places to go to, local events, learning several basic phrases etc to have a stress-free and safe authentic experience.
So I've been thinking how can I help you in this case. And here's what I've come up with: my colleagues and friends, starting guides, are happy to guide you around and give you all basic information that you need. A bit of history, a bit of culture, a bit of local news, as well as top things to do in Moscow.
From what I've heard from my tourists, concierges in hotels, as a rule, advise something upscale and rediculously expensive, though there are hundreds of great places you won't find in your guide books and not hear from your concierge, as they are getting no commission out of it. . . :)
Booking this tour, you also get disocunt in some hotels and cafes
