Description
Meet your private guide in your hotel lobby at 10am and start your 3-hour local cultural experience. Your tour can be customized, so let your guide know if you have any specific requests.

See the historic Red Square and walk through the city center. Stroll the ancient streets of Nikolskaya, Ilyinka, and Varvarka in the cultural and historical area of Kitay-gorod.

Take a stroll through the Old Town and visit one of the most famous and oldest streets in Europe, the main street of Moscow, Tverskaya. In existence since the 12th century, this is the main street for parades. See Znamenka, the street of the aristocrats; Vozdvizhenka Street, home to the Russian State Library, and Volkhonka Street, which connects the Kremlin and Christ the Savior Cathedral.

Very popular with the locals is Muzeon Sculpture Park, with its wide range of sculptures from Soviet leaders to Pinocchio. In the summer season it hosts movies in an open-air heater. Follow a local hiking trail from the iconic red-bricked Red October Chocolate Factory to Sparrow Hills, with its waterfront views and trendy cafes.

Gorky Park is the number one hot spot in Moscow among locals. Founded almost 90 years ago, it's a giant park with just about everything to entertain you, such as ping-pong tables, bike rentals, a fountain with rose garden, and ice cream vendors.

Finish with an optional river cruise or a visit to the Moscow Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Soviet Arcade Machines, the former Museum of the Revolution, or the Bunker Museum (own expense).

Your tour concludes with a drop-off at your centrally located Moscow hotel.

This was a great tour. We had a very personable young guide who had very good english skills. We were able to customize what we saw.
I highly recommend this tour.
