What You Can Expect

Early-Admission Kremlin Tour in Moscow: Armory, Diamond Fund Exhibition and Assumption Cathedral

Visit the Kremlin's Armory on your tour!

Emerge early and greet your guide at a central Moscow location, ready to enter the iconic Kremlin palace complex. Avoid the long entrance lines that appear later in the day and embark on a guided tour of the opulent chambers and impressive grounds of the residence of the Russian prime minister. Receive an insightful introduction to the turbulent history of the Kremlin, hearing tales of battle, bloodshed and corruption as you amble around the palace.

Head first to the Armory, a chamber overflowing with precious jewels and glittering treasure, to explore nine rooms all lavishly embellished with ornamentation and weapons. Direct your attention to ostentatious highlights like the vast collection of Faberge Eggs and the crowns and thrones of former Russian tsars. 

Stop for photographs beside Tsar Cannon, a colossal firearm that has never been blown, and then gaze at one of the world’s largest bells encased by a grand bellower. Next, immerse yourself in the opulent jewels of the Diamond Fund Exhibition to see an enticing array of precious stones amassed by Russian emperors over the years. 

After admiring crowns, scepters and orbs belonging to the Empress Elizabeth and then head to the Assumption Cathedral to absorb the sacred majesty of the structure. Marvel at the swathes of 15th-century color within the ecclesiastical building and soak up the religious resplendence in the main prayer hall. 

Return to the start point of the tour and bid your guide a fond farewell.

Very knowledgeable tour guide. Fabulous. However the Kremlin was not too nice, did not allow her in with us and she tried to get a ticket and also to give us some audio headsets and they did not allow her in a certain area. They then wanted her info. It was very upsetting. She did not do anything wrong, I hope this got resolved. She is a very kind and smart woman.

A wonderful visit to the Kremlin - our guide Tatiana was extermely knowledgeable and gave us just the right amount of information for our 13 and 17 year old. Amazing to see all the Russian treasures in the Diamond fund and Armory and inside the beautiful churches. Highly recommended.

A tour to the Kremlin during the 70th anniversary victory parade time frame can be nothing but spectacular and having a guide to show the best viewing areas is priceless. We highly recommend this tour group for their professional and world renowned availability. Our only disappointment was that our guide chose to send us in to the armory and jewel room with headsets rather than providing one on one services which he did do for the many churches. As we paid over 400 for the two of us we would have preferred this although maybe others would enjoy the option of going at your own pace and viewing what you chose.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better October 2015

Ok...this is probably not what you want to hear, but the guide was not very good. We loved the Exhibition, Armory and Kremlin but her narrative was very lacking. I found myself listening to other guides to get the background. We ended up going bac to the Kremlin cathedrals the next day to gather more insights. We stopped and treated her to lunch. I have never seen anyone eat so much! Yikes...guess she ate her tip!
