Your Moscow Guide

Julia Onitchenko

I suggest I introduce myself first, as I think it is important for travellers all over the world to feel comfortable with those with whom they spend their holidays. In this way you can decide for yourselves whether or not you will feel comfortable with me!

My first name is very simple – Julia. My last name Onichtchenko is difficult to pronounce for foreigners, as it is of Ukrainian origin. I was born and brought up in Moscow and have experienced different epochs. From the recent past I can tell you about life in the Soviet as well as the modern era, when people more often talk about oligarchs and politics.

Following graduation at two universities and once finished with my optional guide school training in Moscow, my hobby became my profession. I have passed the special guide qualification courses in all the museums in Moscow to acquire the special licences which enable me to give private guided tours in my hometown, Moscow. Annually I attend advanced lectures to keep me up to date and to give rare customised tours in the museums.

In the last 14 years I worked as a German and English speaking guide not only in Moscow. I accompanied groups on the Trans-Siberian Railway (Moscow-Beijing, Moscow-Vladivostok) as well as on river cruises from Moscow to St. Petersburg and to Astrakhan. I have also climbed the highest mountain in Europe, the Elbrus (18,510 ft) in the Caucasus, with climbing guest groups.

I would like to thank all of the customers, who have placed their trust in us. I keep carefully your kindly emails, letters, photos and I would ask you for your understanding, that from thousands feedbacks I can place in my guest book in internet only 3-4 entries per year

I hope you also will set your heart on discovering Moscow and Russia and I shall be only too happy to portray my beloved hometown, Moscow, from my point of view.  


Best regards from Moscow,

Liebe julia,

es war ein großes Vergnügen, dass ich durch ihre fachkundige und informative Führung die wunderschöne großartige Stadt Moskau kennenlernen durfte. Ich hoffe auf ein Wiedersehen, und werde sie gerne an meine Freunde (denen ich allen einen Besuch der wunderschönen Stadt empfehlen werde) weiterleiten.

Mit lieben Grüßen verbleibt (22.05.2011).

Liebe Julia,

Nochmals vielen, vielen Dank für die schönen Tage mit Ihnen. Wir alle haben es sehr genossen, haben viel gelernt und Sie sehr lieb gewonnen. Eine bessere Stadtführerin lässt sich nicht denken.

Liebe Julia,
Nach schon vielen Moskau-Besuchen seit 1998 sind Sie die best-qualifizierteste Reiseleiterin in Sprache, Wissen, Kultur und Hintergrundinformationen, die mir begegnet ist. Bleiben Sie auf diesem Niveau und Sie werden immer zufriedene Besucher verabschieden. Mit besten Grüssen (13.05.2010).
