Description
After a pickup from your centrally located Moscow hotel, the walking tour will start in one of the oldest and most interesting districts of Moscow, Zamoskvorechye. Then move to the Bolotnaya Square, and from the Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge you'll be able to see a fascinating panoramic view of Moscow.

Visit the most exciting attractions including, Red Square and GUM, Alexander Garden, Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, Boulevard Ring, and the famous Arbat Street. If you have time and desire, you'll be able to visit also the Poklonnaya Hill and the observation point of Vorobyovy Gory.

During the tour you'll know and discover, the meaning of "Zamoskvorechye" and other strange names of Moscow streets, the locations of hidden ancient churches and what happened to them during the Communism era. Learn why all newly-married couples go to Luzhkov Bridge, where the famous Russian rebels Stepan Razin and Yemelyan Pugachev were executed. Get the inside scoop where you can try local Russian food and why Arbat Street is the most popular street among tourists. Of course, you will not skip the Red Square, St.Basil's Cathedral and the Kremlin. Try some ice-cream at the GUM or a Soviet-style lunch at atmospheric Russian cafe. Prepare to walk a lot, Moscow is big.

During each tour, a small break will be taken for coffee or lunch in authentic places (at own expense).

Anastasia did an incredible job, this is a MUST when visiting Moscow!

Our Tour Guide, Katya, was very accommodating. She planned our tour depending on our likes. She made traveling through the Moscow Metro very convenient. She made exploring around Moscow comfortable and enjoyable. We loved the restaurant that she took us to.

Very much enjoyed this tour and the flexible approach to it that the guide took. It was particularly good to go to some of the places off the tourist trail.
