What will we see on the Alternative Moscow Tour?
You will see how Moscow looked like in the nineteenth century, take a ride on a historic tram and listen to amazing stories about ghosts, famous criminals and eccentric merchants. If you want to understand the local culture, then experience it yourself. Moscow off the beaten track is one of the best ways to do it. You will see St. John's hill - a quiet place in the city center with a pre-revolutionary spirit; Khokhlovka - Russian hipsters and street art; Khitrovka - the most terrifying neighborhood of Moscow in the nineteenth century: criminals, brothels and alcohol; Zamoskvorechie - beautiful streets and lanes full of legends and love stories.
Can we run the Alternative Moscow Tour with a private guide?
Yes, of course! For those who want to explore the hidden pages of Moscow on their own or choose a convenient time we offer Private Alternative Moscow Tour. We will meet you in a hotel lobby at a convenient time, during the tour our guide will focus on your interests and special spots.

By the way we can also provide a shuttle car or minivan on request. Please see Private Tours page for details.
