It was awesome

I really enjoyed this Tour. She explained Russian history and culture with each station. And using a reference photo, we could understand and know the station’s story. If I come to Russia again, I want to join another tour.

It depends on your agent whom you'd booked with. Usually it's at the ticket office, near booth no. 13. Or the benches just outside it.

Get in touch with them and ask about your needs. TripAdvisor doesn't let me post an email address, but you can google Moscow free tour and find a way to ask.
