Let’s get acquainted! May I introduce myself?

My name is Maria and I really enjoy being a guide. One can say that this job was made for me. If you are now on our webpage that means you are already preparing for your journey (If you are now on our webpage it means that  you are already planning your trip.) and will understand me, an inveterate traveler.  Meeting new people, gaining impressions and experiencing adventures on the way, these are all absolutely essential things. For the whole of our lives we’ll remember the heavenly beauty of the nature as well as the wonderful places we’ve visited.

Though I am a native Muscovite, this quickly changing city never ceases to amaze me. Within and beyond Moscow together we’ll see much that is beautiful, impressive and sometimes unusual –things I wouldn’t want to miss if I were a traveler. What’s more, with my help you won’t lose your way either in the maze of Russian history or on the underground. Let’s not be bored, let’s study the local way of life, let’s meet the natives. And one more thing, I hope during our trip we’ll become friends. It’s so nice to have friends from everywhere – friends that are so varied and so pleasant!

See you in Moscow!

Hello, my future guests! I would like to introduce myself. My name is Igor and I am very happy to be a guide and to show foreign guests round our city and our huge country. Having worked in various fields, I came to realize that working with people is my dream job. I am also a sales manager for an internet bicycle shop and a children’s entertainer. So my experience allows me to cope with the most varied tasks. I want to provide you with the best trip possible.

I’m very flexible, so we can create a trip any way you prefer: on foot, by bike, by car, by river boat or ship, or even by ordinary train, tram or bus.

As a founder of our agency I want to develop ever newer programmes for tourists so we are always open to suggestions. If you haven’t found a particular tour on our menu, please send us a request and we’ll do our very best to accommodate your wishes.

In addition, I love Russian music, folk dance, cuisine and of course Russian traditions. We’ll be very glad to see you enjoying yourselves so I invite you to travel with Moscow Meridian to visit our magical city and the fascinating and largest country in the world!

My name is Nataliya. I’ve been into this profession since 2009 It’s a fantastic job to introduce tourists to Russia’s unique and popular attractions, such as historical monuments, parks, gardens, museums, art galleries and other areas of cultural interest. It’s a real pleasure to be a cultural ambassador offering commentary and interesting bits of information, which allow visitors to fully experience and enjoy Moscow’s social, historical and cultural highlights. It’s really unforgettable to see how stereotypes are being ruined when people get to know Russia and Russian people closer.

Apart from guiding I am also a teacher of English. I enjoy doing both guiding and teaching. I must admit that I have found my golden mean in life. Realizing this fact makes me feel very happy because I am doing what I love and what I am good at.

There are some other things that make me tick in this life: my family, wonderful friends, reading, doing sports and of course, travelling. To make myself clear let me quote the words of R.L. Stevenson ‘The world is so full of a number of things, I’m sure we should be as happy as kings.’

Welcome to Moscow and Russia, Welcome to Moscow Meridian, DEAR FRIENDS!
