Private Tour: Moscow by Night

moscow by night tour, moscow night tours, moscow

Meet your guide at your Moscow hotel and if you wish, customize your itinerary. Then, set out on your walking tour, using the metro where necessary.

Recall medieval Russia at Red Square, viewing the Kremlin fortress, St. Basil’s Cathedral, and other signature sights including the Alexander Garden, Romanov Obelisk, and Lenin’s Library, all beautifully lluminated in the dusk.

See the Kremlin from Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge and savor a coffee or Soviet-style ice cream (both own expense) inside GUM, the glorious 19th-century arcade that was the Soviet Union’s state department store.

View the city lights along Tverskaya Street and thoroughfares like Kamergersky Lane and Petrovka Street, and admire the floodlit Christ the Saviour Cathedral as you hear about its strange past.

Savor the city skyline from Patriarch Bridge and gaze out at the 1950s-built Seven Sisters skyscrapers from Sparrow Hills near Moscow State University as you hear their, and the university’s, history.

If you wish, explore Arbat, a hub of arty galleries and bohemian cafes, and enjoy a drink (own expense) at one of its stylish bars.

Your tour ends when your guide leaves you in the city center or drops you at your hotel, depending on your wishes.

Kate was great! It was Moscow's birthday the day I arrived and Red Square was packed! Kate tried her best in getting us front row for the firework show but they set them off elsewhere in which there was really no way of telling where, but it was a great tour especially when I had just arrived in the country earlier that afternoon!

An amazing experience! Anna collected me from my hotel and spent the next 3 hours showing me all the sights I wanted to see in this amazing city. Her knowledge was outstanding but far more importantly, she was a delight to spend time with. My childhood dream had always been to see St. Basils Cathedral lit up in the evening and so Anna planned our tour so that this was our last stop. I am so glad that I booked the tour and so grateful to Anna for her expertise and kindness.

We changed our Russia plans last minute to add a one day stop in Moscow. Given that you need to get tix for all these things (kremlin,armory, diamonds) and they are sold out well in advance, there was no other way to make all of this happen. This trip was like a magic wand that solved the problem.

Kate nicest tour guide ever!! picked me up in my hotel lobby precisely at the arranged time and showed me some amazing spots other than the not-to-be-missed Red Square. All the places we visited were selected reflected a very good taste from Kate and her explanations were meaningful and passionate.
Unfortunately I needed to have a mere 3-hour visit, but she cleatly made the most of it and we met the schedule right on time. It was a small miracle to see so many wonderful spots and views in such a short period of time.
So I ended up feeling really sorry for having such a little time available and I promised myself to go back to Moscow with more available time... and of course to book an extended tour with Friendly Guides! This visit clearly exceeded my expectactions! Congratulations and Thank you so much!

This tour was amazing! No better way to get the real feel of a city. My tour guide spoke perfect English and was very knowledgeable about Moscow. Will definitely recommend !

Tanya picked us up at our hotel and took us through the Moscow subways which are quite beautiful and we could have stayed for hours to Red Square and the surrounding areas. We had a great time walking through the city, learning about different neighborhoods, squares and buildings as well as taking some fantastic pictures of people and buildings. She was very accommodating and helpful. Seeing the city at night is a great way to avoid some of the tourist crowds. I highly recommend it.

A very enjoyable night tour of Moscow. My guide Gelya was awesome - entertaining, very knowledgeable, a endless source of fascinating facts and great company to be with for my first evening in Moscow. She made the night for me! I will definately book with Friendly Local Guides for my next trip.
