Highly Recommended

I liked Moscow city tours, you will really feel that you are in Russia. I liked the city walk around like red square walking around, visit the famous Christ the Savior Cathedral and take an outside photo. Also, try to book a ballet show in Bolshi Theatre. we visited Moscow during Summer August 2018 and the weather was cold and I can imaging how cold it will be in winter or spring. Moscow is suitable for couples, friends, families who are in love wit culture, city walks, sopping, delicious Russian and international food.

Two Days in Moscow

Just had 2 great tours with Moscow city tour. I would say it is a must to have a guide for the Kremlin as there is so much to see and Moscow City Tour did us proud with their private four hour tour. We had a lovely guide Nadya who was very knowledgeable and gave us plenty of time to ourselves to take photos etc. The next day we had a private tour by car with Elena from the same company and again had a great time finishing with coffee at the GUM store. Great guides and their website was easy to use.

All Day Moscow Tour

Our cruise ship stopped for 3 days in St. Petersburg and we opted to travel by high speed train for a day in Moscow. Elena met us promptly and welcomed us in perfect English. The tour was beautifully organized--van took us first to stunning view points to get the lay of the beautiful land, then we zeroed in on the magnificent cathedrals, the Kremlin areas, the State Armory, Red Square, even a metro tour, with Elena's knowledge of art and history making every site come alive. We covered a lot of territory, including a fun lunch stop in the famous Gum department store. Elena took us back to the train station and made sure we boarded

Magnificent Moscow!

We had 3 days with our Moscow City Tour guide Elena and covered a lot of ground. She was very friendly, spoke very good English and worked hard to show us everything on our planned itinerary. The tours worked well for us as we had half day tours and lunch before being free to explore and do our own thing. Elena was very good at providing information as we looked at the city, metro, Kremlin and visited Sergiev Posad where we also had an excellent guide. Overall we would highly recommend Moscow City Tours and Elena.

Wonderful Holiday

We had such a fantastic trip in Moscow due to our tour guide Elena who took us all over Moscow by car, tube and by foot. She was so helpful and knowledgeable and was able to answer all of our questions on history, where to shop and eat etc. Her command of the English language was very good and we had no problems understanding her. Elena was more than happy to help us and I would recommend her to our family and friends. If we ever go back to Moscow (Russia) we will contact Elena to be our guide again as there is so much to see and do!

Vladimir and Suzdal are Facingting!

In November we visited Vladimir and Suzdal. It seemed, it will be cold, but we were so facinated by the beauty of these cities that did not think about the cold. Our trip was perfectly planned. We visited all main highlights: Spaso-Evfimyevsky Monastry, Museum of Wooden Architecture, Andrey Bobolyubsky Residence, Church of Intersession on Nerli, Assumption Cathedral and many others. Local guides know their job very well and are able to narrate in a very involving manner. Our program was very rich. Even our dinner was turned into a real adventure - we sink into the workld of Russian Folk Music. At the end we all were singing and dancing together with artists, and making music with wooden spoons! Thank you for a great tour that gave us so many exiting moments.

Sooo Much To See!

This was a combo bus and walking tour as part of our Russian River cruise. First we toured by bus to see some of the highlights of the city and then doubled back to get off and visit some of the places I will review individually. We went up on Sparrow Hill to look out over the city.

Four Exiting Hours

At the beginning we were able to say what we would like to see. And based on our wishes our guide suggested an individual tour route for us. It was great and we saw a variety of sightseeings that we would never find by ourselves. We had a relazing tempo and atmosphere and not boring as our guide gave us not too much information.

Arsenal is the largest structure on the Kremlin’s territory. It was built by the order of the Russian most famous tsar – Peter the Great. In the 18th century it had to be the museum of War Trophies.

SENATE PALACE

Who haven’t dreamed of meeting Russian President Putin during their visit to the Kremlin? Many tourists think that the Head of the world’s largest nation lives on the territory of the Kremlin.

However, his Official Working Residence is situated in Kremlin – in the Senat Palace – the next point you will observe with our guide.

It was a work of Russian craftsmen – Ivan Motorin and his son Mikhail Motorin – who lived in the first half of the 18th century.

IVAN THE GREAT BELL TOWER

Ivan the Great Bell Tower was affiliated with the Church of St. Ivan of the Ladder-under-the Bell and hence the name ‘Ivan’ had been used in the title.

It has around 700 rooms and 5 grand halls that had been named after the main Russian orders – Georgievsky, Vladimirsky, Alexandrovsky, Andreevsky and Ekaterininsky. The Palace used to be an official residence for the Imperial family during their visits to Moscow. Today, it is used for official and diplomatic meetings, and is also the Official Residence of the Russian President. Discover, how many floors does the Palace have?

 

FACETED CHAMBER

Another masterpiece of Italian architects – the Faceted Chamber was built at the end of the 15th century. Its eastern façade is decorated with faceted stones – that is why it was called “Faceted” Chamber. Russian Tsars and Emperors used to celebrate here important events – victories, coronations and marriage ceremonies. The Chamber has 2 floors that are not connected with each other. On the 2d floor there is a huge dining hall with 495 square meters in area. Discover, how the Faceted Chamber is used today?

   

KREMLIN’S GARDEN AND HELICOPTER PLATFORM

Kremlin’s Garden, also known as the Secret (Tainitsky) Garden, lies left to the south wall of the Kremlin facing the bench of Moscow-River. According to historical chronicles, there were four fountains in the Garden. In 2008, it was decided to make at least one fountain with the name “Bird of Happiness” with a figure of peacock bird as the symbol of happiness. From the Garden’s alley you will be able to see the Helicopter Landing Pad used by the Russian President.
