With an expert guide, walk from one iconic landmark to another as you hear about Moscow’s long and turbulent history.

Numbers are limited to 10 on this small-group tour for a more personalized atmosphere.
  • 2-hour small-group walking tour of Moscow with a local guide
  • Explore the areas around Red Square, Nikolskaya Street and Alexandrovsky Garden
  • Hear history and anecdotes aplenty from a knowledgeable and entertaining guide
  • See an array of top Moscow attractions including St Basil’s Cathedral, the Kremlin and Bolshoi Theatre
  • Small-group tour with a maximum of 10 people ensures a personalized experience
Meet your expert local guide near the Bolshoi Theatre in central Moscow, and after a brief introduction, start out on your 2-hour small-group walking tour.

While you stroll, hear interesting tales from your guide that shed light on the history, architecture, culture and politics of Russia’s capital, both now and through the ages.

As you walk and talk, pass a string of top Moscow attractions and historical sights. Wander into Red Square, the vast, cobblestoned plaza that forms the heart of the city, and hear about the massive military parades that were staged here during Soviet days.Gaze up at the candy-striped, onion-shaped domes of St Basil’s Cathedral and learn how this extraordinary church was built, first and foremost, to grab people’s attention.

Pose for photos outside the unmissable church and then continue across Red Square to Lenin’s Tomb, the mausoleum where the famous Bolshevik leader lies embalmed for all to see.

Pass the massive State History Museum, whose artifacts document the history of Russia from as far back as the ice age, and pause outside one of the country’s first department stores: GUM.

Then, swing by the swish boutiques and handsome mansions of Nikolskaya Street, and pass the legendary Bolshoi Theatre, the six-tier concert and ballet auditorium.

Stroll through the colorful Alexandrovsky Garden for grandstand views of the Kremlin, and hear all about the history of this huge, fortified complex, the seat of power for the now long-done Soviet government and today’s president.

Stop at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier where the Changing of the Guard Ceremony is held, and throw a coin in the Alexandrovsky’s mock-ruined grotto for luck.

After around two hours of exploring, return to the original start point where your tour ends.

Great Orientation to Moscow

We met our guide precisely as indicated on the ticket. She was timely and walked us through central Moscow, showing us the sights and providing interesting historical commentary. We saw the Bolshoi, the Metropol Hotel, Red Square, GUMM Department Store, Kemlin, and much more. Our guide was very friendly and spoke great English. This tour was great for our first day in Moscow and getting the lay of the land and some great recommendations and tips on how to navigate the biggest tourist spots in Moscow. Highly recommend.
Nice small group, slow pace

Our guide, Lydia, was a jewel !!!!! We were there in September and there was a constant drizzle on the day of our tour. While some may have canceled a walking tour that was just 2 people.....she showed up fashionably dressed with an umbrella to share with us. She gave us a full, amazing tour of the backstreets of the city which began with a quick tour inside of the Metropol. We enjoyed her company so much, we invited her to join us for lunch our treat so we could get to know as much about life in Moscow as we learned about Moscow from her tour. Another must see when in Moscow!

Great introductory tour to Moscow's city centre. The guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the area and the building architecture. She also gave suggestions about further sites to visit in the afternoon.

This ended up being a one-on-one private tour and I learned a lot. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. The tour guide was older and pretty serious, so not very cheery or upbeat, and didn't seem to relate anything to me personally when I would make comments. Tour was ok but I would have preferred more interaction since it was just the two of us. But she did add an extra tour through St. Basil's Cathedral and got us in around the line, which she didn't have to do and was not part of the tour I paid separate for entrance.

This is a very good tour if you have a couple of hours to learn about the main sights in Moscow. The guide had excellent knowledge about all the building and the history. The tour was very informative and the walk was at a very leisurely pace. I definitely recommend this.
