I contacted Mr.Terentev two months before our one week trip. Besides Moscow city we had some adventure tour in our mind and he helped us to organise it the best way possible. Right from the start he did absolutely the best job anyone could ask for - packing advises, taxi from airport, schedule planning and common tips. When we arrived we met in the Moscow center and had great city walking tour - history, red square, shops, souvenirs, russian hospitality, metro system and local cafe. He also gave us many tips what should we do next. After introduction like that it was very easy to start exploring the city on our own.
The adventure itself was nothing but the best. We drove to the small town of Staritsa and made many small stops on our way. On our way Tony told us about the local history with great details and he had very good knowledge and stories. Also his Уаз-van was very good and suitable for rural driving. After offroading we had great barbeque, cave exploration, walks in the nature and chatting on bonfire. The sleeping in tents next to Volga river was unforgettable. Next day we did some more offroading, relaxed in local bathhouse, had some lunch and drove back to Moscow with some more sightseeing.
After everything we saw and experienced I can highly recommend Travel real Russia. It's rare to have service like that. It takes a lot of effort to make customised tour as we did, but Tony managed to make it perfect. Good equipment, suitable car, flexible attitude and superb local knowledge - both city and countryside. It was great to have a guide as versatile as he is.
