What You Can Expect

Meet a personal guide at your Moscow hotel, then make your way to the Izmailovo Palace on foot or using public transport (own expense). As you walk, listen to stories from Moscow history—this is the perfect time to talk over any questions you have about Russian culture, or about your time in the city.

Follow a route through historic streets and squares, and find buildings clad in stone and traditional timber work. Pause to visit pretty shops along the way, then enter the 17th-century Izmailovo Palace. Explore the brightly painted complex, where colorful towers look out across the red and white cobblestone bridge.

Continue to the Vodka Museum, where exhibits bring the history and production of Russian vodka to life. Try medovukha, a honey drink that’s beloved throughout Russia, then spend the rest of your time as desired: visit a few more shops or the nearby market, or make the return trip to your hotel with your guide.

Our Tour Guide, Katya, was very helpful. She made shopping at Izmailovo Market fun. She was our translator and she helped us bargain with the vendors. The place really looked like it was made out of a Fairy Tale. Thanks for being there to take our photos.

A good little quick three hour tour. The vodka museum isn't that big and can done in a half hour at most. It's just two little rooms - one of the history of vodka and the other a collection of bottles from around the world. The real value of the tour was our guide's ability to get us a good deal on some of the market items. Even though she wasn't into haggling, she still got us a good deal or two.
Just remember it's a three hour tour, so shop quick if you're not comfortable getting home by yourself.

We had a lovely afternoon with Katia! She shared so much about Moscow with us. Her English is superb and she made dinner reservations for us at an incredible restaurant for dinner! The vodka museum is not super exciting but the location is gorgeous. We wished we had a little more time for market shopping. Very fun tour! Thank you!
