It was a perfect experience to have walking tour with Ksenia's team. Alexander was our tour guide and what a great luck I was the only one on the tour ☺️. So it was a private tour for me. Alexander accompanied me for the most beautiful and historical places of Moscow by decorating his guiding with unforgettable stories and historical informations for almost 2.5-3 hours without getting bored. I feel really appreciated for him.
