About
Meet your tour guide at the lobby of your hotel or at any designated place in Moscow city center. Travel by metro to Gorky Park, accompanied by your guide, and, once you are there, start exploring the most famous park in Russia - Gorky Park. It gained its fame thanks to the immortal song “Wind of Change” by Scorpions and a novel “Gorky Park", both big hits in 1980s-1990s. Gorky Park still keeps its secrets from the Soviet times. We will embark on a 2,5-hour river cruise with scenic views of Moscow from the pier nearby. Do not forget your camera - you will enjoy those iconic views through panoramic windows. A local tour guide will explain you about all the sights on the way and will share some stories from the Soviet past. The cruise has a high-praised restaurant on board, so you can enjoy a full lunch or dinner or have a coffee with a dessert at your own expense in a comfortable atmosphere of the river cruise.

    Stop: 40 minutes
    We will visit Gorky park, the most popular park in Moscow. It is a recreation area: there you will find two cinemas, an observatory, Garage Museum of Contemporary Art and a number of workshops. It is a Hipster area, chill. Opened in 1923 and named after a Soviet writer, Maxim Gorky, for the last 60 years the park has been a symbol of the USSR. We will talk about its origins, legends, and its role in the city life while strolling along perfectly kept trees and flower beds.

Moscow looks totally different from the river. The Kremlin, the Cathedrals, Stalin sisters - all are so close, amazing and nice. Children were able to stay at the top deck and enjoyed the views.

Great tour at the river
Aug 2019 • Family
We had an a absolutely great time exploring Gorky Park and then doing a tour along Moskva river.
It was a dream to see Gorky Park and it didn’t disappoint, nice place to walk and it was a lot of people around a lot of activities and a music festival - just awesome.
The cruise was an absolutely fantastic as well, the weather was nice and we could sit on a open air veranda and enjoy sightseeing. Our guide commentary was brilliant, he was very knowledgeable and funny. Many thanks

Most visually impressive tour of Moscow possible!
Oct 2019
On the week of our cruise, and once already in Russia, the boat operators hired out the Gorky Park boats to a private tour and cancelled our trip. Viator was undeterred and at their own expense upgraded us to an alternate tour so as not to cause any disruption to our experience. The alternate cruise went off without a hitch and likely provided an even or better experience than the planned original. Our tour guide, Anton Permogorov, was deeply knowledgeable and provided a wealth of information you would not get if you ventured on your own. If in Moscow, this cruise is a must to get the best view of too many historical sites to mention. From the river, you'll see Gorky Park, Holy Christ the Savior Cathedral, the Kremlin and St. Basils Cathedral among many other sites. We were so impressed by Anton and the experience we had, we asked him to conduct another tour the following day. Also fantastic. Take this tour and ask for Anton!

Great Moscow tour!
Sep 2019
Me and my friends did this tour in September and it was great. The boat was very nice and clean and the food and service onboard was perfect. We got to see a lot of interesting sights from the river side and Moscow is beautiful in the evening with all the lights. Elena, our guide was very professional and knowledgeable and told us a lot about the city and its history. I can highly recommend this tour.

Amazing tour! Totally worth it
Aug 2019 • Solo
Alina was such an amazing guide. I had a private tour and it was well worth it. She took me out on a 8 hour tour (was supposed to be 4, but the tour was just that good) across Moscow from squares to buildings and parks over to restaurants and sharing her knowledge every step of the way. I learnt so much, and she’s also a really friendly/genuine person which ads to the overall experience.

A must do!

Splendid
Thank you for the tour! I had so much fun, I did not feel that I was spending time with a tour guide, but rather a person who I have known for a very long time. Alina is a very thoughtful and genuine person, she knows all the fun stories about Moscow. I genuinely recommend her and her team.
I give Alina 5* and also 5* to the cruise. It is really worth every cent, very beautiful both inside and outside.
