About
We will meet you in the hotel and proceed to the Red Square — one of the most iconic Russian sights, filled with history and magnificent beauty. We will see traditional Russian churches with their onion domes and walk inside some of them to see how unique is their architecture, how people pray (some of these churches are still in use!) We will walk through a great glass gallery of a ~130 years old shopping mall GUM and see the famous tomb of the first Russian communist leader — Lenin. And of course — the Saint Basil's cathedral. One of the strangest stories here is about Ivan the Terrible blinding the architects of the cathedral, so they can't repeat the stunning beauty of the masterpiece! We'll walk through a modern wonder of Zaryadie park, see the walls of Kremlin and, optionally, stop for a traditional Russian lunch in one of our favourite Moscow places. We'll have an opportunity to see the change of guards and the Eternal Flame — a memorial to the victims of WWII. And more:)

Best way to do it!
Oct 2021 • Solo
Nikita was a great tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and responsive! He helped me purchase a show in Bolshoi and he recommended some great restaurants and places to go. I could get to see all the must-see tourist attractions of Moscow in a single day. This private tour was the best way to max out my time. I strongly recommend it to the future travelers!

Fact filled Moscow walking tour.
Jan 2020
Excellent introduction to Moscow and full of tips and information to make the most out of the rest of our stay. Katya spoke perfect English and was very knowledgeable with plenty of interesting stories. The pictures she had with her were very interesting to enable a then and now comparison of the sites we were looking at. Would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Moscow.

The perfect tour of Moscow
Dec 2019 • Solo
If you only do one tour while in Moscow, this is the one to do! Such a great overview of the sites and history of this amazing city. This takes you from Red Square and the Kremlin, to St. Basil’s and Christ the Savior Church, to the old KGB headquarters, through great shopping streets and broad boulevards, and interesting historical sites along the river. Katya was my guide, and her knowledge was extremely comprehensive. She is super-friendly, and her English is great as well. Highly, highly recommend!

My experience with this tour was excellent. I had the opportunity to go to the most iconic places in Moscow and learned about the city and culture (including the the modern... financial district). Thank you Katya for everything and for making my experience in Russia pleasant!

Perfect for First Time in Moscow - Great Guide
Oct 2019 • Couples
We had an amazing tour and learned so much about Moscow. Nikita is a terrific guide. He picked us up at our hotel and we just kept moving to our delight. He was willing to deviate if and when we had a special interest. We visited central Moscow and during the walk would learn a great deal about architecture and Russian history all of which was logically interwoven into the sites. Perfect for a first time visitor.  Covered the Kremlin, Red Square, Gum, St. Basils Cathedral, Gorky Park, hopped on a bus and a train, saw a few cool neighborhoods where people live, Patriarch's Ponds, and other major sites.  

Nikita arrived on time, spoke perfect English, and we are grateful for showing us the fascinating sights of this wonderful city and putting current events in context with the country's history. Went out of his way to leave us at a perfect place for lunch. Money very well spent. Thank you.

The best walking tour - Katya was amazing
Oct 2019
My mother and I did this walking tour a few weeks ago and we still talk about it to this day. Our wonderful guide, Katya, picked us up at our hotel at a time that was convenient for us, and took us on the metro. Travelling with the locals was cool and was an excellent experience. The artwork and design of some metro stations is a must-see. Katya helps decipher what the artwork meant and also explained a lot about the period it was created. We then went to the Red Square and saw St Basil's, the Kremlin and GUM. The history of these places is incredible.

My mother and I traveled throughout Europe for weeks before going to Moscow and this was the best tour we were apart of. I thoroughly recommend this trip. Katya is knowledgeable and fun. Katya - thank you for such a wonderful day.

Fabulous walking tour in Moscow
Oct 2019 • Solo
Cannot recommend this tour highly enough! Met on time in the lobby of my hotel by Nikita who was extremely professional and knowledgeable. Fantastic walk through all the must sees in the centre of Moscow with plenty of time to stop for photos and to ask questions. I only had a short time in the city so gave me a fabulous day out fitting in as much as I could. Thank you!
