The guide was very good
I had a very short time in Moscow and wanted to get a good overview of the city sites complemented by history, culture and food. My guide Dasha met me promptly at the hotel. She had excellent suggestions on how to maximize the time and adjust the tour to my interests. We started near Red Square and then walked through Kitai Gorod and back to Red Square to see St Basil's and the GUM up close. We then went on the Metro circle line and stopped at several stations to see the post-revolution living art. She reminded me that the Metro is classified as a museum ... for good reason. We then headed to Novodevichy monastery area where we had a Georgian hachapuri and dumpling lunch. After getting tickets to the Kremlin, we said our goodbyes. It was the best half day tour I have taken!
Julia was a delight and very knowledgable. We enjoyed her company throughout the day while getting to know the sights of Moscow. We would highly recommend! Thanks!
The tour was fantastic! Irina met us on time at our hotel and she was fluent in English. We had previously emailed her to purchase tickets to the Kremlin and the Armory. Irina was a wealth of information and she told us the history behind everything we passed. The best tour with the best guide!
Our guide met us in our hotel lobby and after meet and greet we sat down and went through the tour. Her English was very good and we got to see many different beautiful sights of Moscow and try authentic Russian cuisine at a local restaurant. The guide was excellent and I highly recommend this tour.
we had lovely day with our guide Tatyana! so many things we saw, she was extremely helpful, friendly, and well organized and she gave us a lots of information! In that one day we saw all Kremlin museums, churches, Red square, and learned a lot about Moscow and Russian great history! Also, she explained about contemporary life in Moscow. thanks to this tour we had a good starting point in exploring Moscow.
thank you for this great experience!
Our guide spoke English well. She was energetic and knowledgeable about the Kremlin. If you want Armory tickets during tourist season make sure you book well in advance. In a previous visit we signed up for this tour on a Thursday only to find the the Kremlin is closed on Thursdays. The Viator website does not disclose that information.
good tour, not enough time to do any shopping in the dept store
It was generally a good tour. Our guide, Polina, a very sweet young lady, was good for the most part. However, it seems that she is not knowledgeable enough. Inside the various Cathedrals, we had to ask her questions as she was not explaining anything. We had to listen in on other guides who were doing so with their respective groups.
Also, we were informed the day of the tour that they did not get the tickets for the Armory. We were very disappointed. The excuse was that they couldn't get them as they go fast. I booked the tour on July 28. Our tour date was Aug. 25. That was not enough time to get the tickets??? The following morning, we asked our hotel if they can get tickets to the Armory and they got them within a half an hour.
The tour guide was very kind and helpful.the tour itself it isnothing including just walking tour to the Kremlin but Kremlin was closed that day!Normally the tour operator have the obligatii s to have all the informations regarding the tour.So my guide made her best to replace Kremlin with something else.The tour it is very expansive for a walking tour.You have to buy all entrance tickets.Very disapointing.
