What You Can Expect

Kremlin Small-Group Tour

Meet your guide at the Kutafia Tower for your Kremlin Tour

Meet your guide at Kutafia Tower at the Kremlin and get ready for an informative small-group tour.

Envision the grandeur of the Grand Kremlin Palace and walk around its central courtyard, visiting monuments and cathedrals. In Ivan Square, see the popular Tsar Bell, the world’s largest at 20 feet (6 meters) tall. Made of bronze and adorned with portraits of Tsar Alexei and Empress Anna, the bell broke during casting and was never repaired.

Check out the 16th-century Tsar Cannon, one of the largest ever made at almost 20 feet (6 meters) long. From here, view the southern exterior façade of the Senate Palace, which currently houses the Russian presidential administration.

In Cathedral Square, visit the 15th-century Assumption Cathedral, once the main church of Russia and the place of coronation for all Russian tsars and emperors, and view Archangel Cathedral, once a burial place for Moscow’s imperial kingdom. Gaze up at Ivan the Great Bell Tower, reaching a height of 266 feet (81 meters) and topped with a golden dome and 23-foot (7-meter) high cross.

Your small-group tour ends at Borovitskaya Tower, where you can continue to visit other cathedrals of the Kremlin on your own.

Really enjoyed this tour. Just enough people to make it fun - but also very personal. Elena - our guide - was excellent. Really knowledgeable and clearly loved her job - which made it even more enjoyable for us. Great afternoon. Would highly recommend this tour.

4 star rating: Recommended July 2013

We enjoyed the tour guide, she was animated and knowledgable .
We had an informed tour of the Kremlin.

I have an important, objective improvement to suggest:
When assembling for a tour could an address such as 1 Main Street be used instead of at the Kutafya Tower ( as an example). We have taken many tours with VIATOR and this is not the first time we have experienced difficulty locating the guide. In fact in Venice in 2010 we missed a tour completely due to this confusion.Another suggestion the guide could have an umbrella of a certain colour.

4 star rating: Recommended June 2013

Good tour!

However, the generalized area at the specified tower at the Kremlin is a very large place, with the entrance actually on the lower level. The tour guide wound up actually at street level between the tower and the stairway to the lower level. A more precise location for meeting up is recommended, as well as a VIATOR or some other flag or placard or something on the tour guide to allow easier recognition. . . . such as "in front of the ticket offices on the lower level."
