Moscow Walking Tour Through the Eyes of Locals
From US$47,23
Overview
Moscow is Russia’s political, economic, and cultural heart, and the best way to see it is through the eyes of a local. During this walking tour, you'll gain an insider’s glimpse into top Moscow attractions, which include Tverskaya Street, Red Square, St. Basil’s Cathedral, the Kremlin, and Lenin’s Mausoleum. This tour provides a great overview of Moscow for first-time visitors.
What to Expect
You begin this guided walking tour in Pushkin Square before making your way down Tverskaya Street, where you duck in and out of places only locals know to get an authentic taste of Russian life.

Arriving at Red Square, you'll take in the city’s most iconic buildings—St. Basil’s Cathedral, built by Ivan the Terrible in 1561, and the Kremlin, a  fortress dating back to the 14th century and current home to the Russian president. Both are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

You'll also check out Lenin’s Mausoleum, home to the mummified body of the former soviet leader; the Bolshoi Theater, where the world-renowned Bolshoi Ballet performs; and GUM, Russia’s largest and most luxurious department store.

Yes it is in English. Our tour was 3 hours I believe. But they can customize the tour to your schedule.
