See, too, GUM, the 123-year-old department store and hear about the terrible fate of architect Postnik Yakovlev, blinded by Ivan the Terrible to prevent the duplication of visual beauty.  Then, you’ll make the short journey to the Kremlin by foot.

We had an excellent tour guide who spoke perfect English and who was super energetic and passionate in sharing her culture and history with us. She was very knowledgeable and patient and knew all the must see places. Excellent job Tanya. We felt very comfortable with you.

Tanya was our guide and she was amazing. She has great knowledge about the country. She stayed with us for extra time and took us to kremlin, red square, shopping mall, food street and even clubs. She is the best guide ever.

I had amazing time with local guide Luba. She was fantastic, with very good English, very knowledgeable and very polite. Only few hours I received full of interesting information about red square and kremlin. As well as she was very helpful. The way back home I stopped one day in Moscow again. She helped me how to get city center by all the detailed information.

Our guide, Mascha, was engaging and brilliant. She not only showed us the sights that we wanted to see (notably, the Kremlin and Red Square), but also gave us a glimpse into daily life here. She took us for coffee, to a park and on the Metro, and entertained us with stories of life here. We felt like we got to know the history and culture much better this way. Highly recommended!

We took the Moscow walking in August 2019 with Anna as our guide. Anna was great and very knowledgeable. She was very organised and professional and provided us with a lot of facts about different areas across Moscow. There was a lot of walking but Anna made sure that we were comfortable with the tour pace every step of the way. Would highly recommend this tour for all first time visitors to Moscow - and request Anna as your guide too!

See the home of Alexander Pushkin, the Moscow Subway, The Bolshoi, numerous statues and monuments, one of the Seven Sisters not to mention excellent places to eat. (The food is good here). I learned so much about the history and the people. Money well spent. These pictures aren't from a palace....they are from the subway. Its stunning in there.

Our guide, Svetlana, picked the two of us up at our hotel and we discussed the day. We customized our tour by adding 3 train stops so I could see some of the famous stations. We then toured the Kremlin, Red Square, St. Basils and ended the tour with lunch at the famous GUM department store. Svetlana was very knowledgeable and well informed on history and architecture. Her English skills were excellent. The 5 hours flew by and we certainly recommend her to everyone.

Daria was a very pleasant and accommodating guide. Her English is excellent and her knowledge of the area was what I needed to know. It would have taken me much longer to get around the important areas and I only had one day. So I didn't have to bother with maps and directions. Being picked up at my hotel was extremely helpful. I recommend this tour, very worth the money.
