Perfect intro tour. Our guide was terrific. Great English, loads of history, and surprises inside the Kremlin walls... Worthwhile tour. A must for photographers.
This was fantastic -- the tour guide (Elena, I believe) was absolutely phenomenal. She made the entire experience quite a blast.
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.
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."
I did three tours, The Metro Tour, The Communist Walking Tour and this Kremlin Small-Group Tour and of the three this was the least appealing. By the time our guide acquired tickets for us and found our security person from the Kremlin, who is required to accompany the tour there was not a lot of time left. I felt that there was nothing really on this tour which you could not have achieved by just wandering around yourself.
Difficult to find guide, the contact phone was not working, guide was knowledgeable but a bit eccentric
The Kremlin tour was expected to be around the 4 cathedrals that are inside with an english speaker guide but we visited only one with the guide and the other 3 by ourself because apparently our tickets were not appropiate for the guided tour. The guide spent 15 min of our 90 min tour arguing with the local officer.
