Meet your guide in the morning by the Belorusskskaya metro and then set off on your epic 7-hour walking journey around Moscow, exploring the grand avenues and hidden streets.

As you walk your guide will point out examples of Soviet and classic Russian architecture.

The tour was amazing. Got to experience the Moscow from a local and #39;s perspective. It felt like spending the day with friends. Ate delicious local food, some in a beautiful Georgian church cafeteria, saw local architecture. Anton looked after us beautifully. Can and #39;t recommend this tour highly enough.
