Meet your private guide at your Moscow hotel at the start time of your choosing, then head into the city to begin your tour. Explore historic streets and bustling thoroughfares, and listen as your private guide shares insight into Moscow’s rich history and heritage.

Stroll through old Moscow, where timber-fronted and stone-clad buildings line your route. Along the way, admire amber jewellery, traditional Russian dolls and ornate Fabergé eggs in pretty shops, and find out what makes this bustling metropolis tick.

Visit 17th-century Izmailovo Palace — constructed during the reign of Alexis I of Russia — and marvel at the impressive architecture you find. Afterward, visit the Russian Vodka History Museum, where centuries of Russian vodka-making come to life.

Sample Russian medovukha — made from honey and widely considered the country’s most famous alcoholic drink — during a tasting session, then return in comfort to your Moscow hotel to conclude your tour.

We booked a tour to Ismailovskoy with Spasibo tours through Viator. Our guide Katya was great fun to be with and guided us through the subway system to the park and the Vodka museum. Ismailovkskoy kremlin is what the Moscow kremlin would look like if the designers were on acid. Everywhere you look, there are creative building designs that make you smile. On Saturday, we witnessed two weddings in the 2+ hours we were there. There was great shopping for souvenirs at much lower prices than Moscow. It and #39;s nice to have some variety and get away from institutions, museums and lectures to have some fun!

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!
